Brought in during the 2013 model year the Buick Encore is the auto manufacturer's subcompact crossover car.
This model sits alongside the other larger SUVs on offer by the company:
Underneath the car, you can find the chassis that is shared by many other small cars that are sold by sister brands such as Opel.
The Encore is an almost identical twin to the Chevrolet Trax with only slight cosmetic differences.
