The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Buick Encore GX steals the parking spot left between the smallest mainstream and luxury crossovers. The 2020 Volvo XC40 honed in on the Netflix and Stitch Fix crowd, with smart dynamics and style and an all-in subscription plan.
