Americans have proven they don’t really have an interest in downsizing, but that hasn’t stopped car makers from trying to change their habits. They have now resorted to sweetening the deal on small cars by cramming a whole bunch of equipment in them. And that is pretty much how the new 2016 Buick Encore Sport Touring was created.
The value factor is through the roof with the Buick Encore Sport Touring as it comes with a number of special exterior and interior appointments that’ll make you think twice before dismissing this car because of its tiny little size. It comes with a winged rear spoiler, 18-inch aluminum premium-finish wheels and body-color door handles. It looks really rather luxurious.
The list of standard features is a long one, and it includes: Blue-accented halogen composite projector-beam headlamps; IntelliLink voice-activated infotainment system with a seven-inch-diagonal, high-resolution, full-color display; OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi hotspot, including a three-month/3GB data trial; Rearview camera system; Fold-flat front passenger seat that extends the cargo length and accommodates items up to eight feet long; Ten standard air bags, including side-curtain and knee air bags; QuietTuning with Bose Active Noise Cancellation technology; Heated outside rearview mirrors with signal indicators; Fuel-saving electric power steering; Four-wheel disc brakes.
Engine-wise Buick Encore Sport Touring gets a 1.4 liter turbo four-pot 153 hp (112 kW) and 177 lb-ft of torque (240 Nm) with start/stop technology.
