TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Buick Encore doesn’t offer the safety or luxury bona fides it needs to stand out. If you need a spacious new vehicle for the tiniest of parking spaces (and budgets), the Trax is an acceptable but mediocre contender. The 2021 Ford Ecosport small crossover forsakes its name and doesn’t offer much by way of driving excitement or efficiency.
