The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.0
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Buick Encore was a good choice for city slickers, but it’s showing its age in all the wrong ways The 2019 Volvo XC40 upends tradition—and traditional style—in mostly acceptable ways, and kicks off the car-subscription era with a stylish bang.
