The best way to test out a car is by taking it out on the road. You can really get a feel for it and see how it handles when you drive a good distance. Driving out to Philadelphia recently, gave me the opportunity to test out the 2023 Buick Encore GX. Read on to learn more about my experience.

The Buick Encore GX is small but stylish.

And I love a smaller sized SUV. It’s easy to drive into the city, comfortable for longer drives and a super quiet cabin. Plus, it’s got a pretty sweet 7 speaker Bose audio system. The design is classy but sporty. If you’re looking for a small premium class SUV, the Buick Encore just may be the one. After all, Buick does have largest percentage share of female buyers in the auto industry. The brand is known for providing compelling options for SUV customers that are looking for premium vehicles that fit their lifestyles.

Buick was the number one overall brand in the J.D. Power 2022 U.S. Initial Quality Study, and the Encore GX was the top ranked vehicle in the Small SUV segment.

After driving the Encore, it’s not hard to see why. It comfortably seats five (2 latch connectors, 1 tether anchor for carseats if needed), has plenty of cargo room and good fuel economy (the tank was still almost full when we returned home). I was pleasantly surprised at how roomy the interior is. My daughter and I has a very comfortable ride up to Philly and were able to fit our suitcases in the trunk with no problem. I also loved that the back row has an outlet. We were able to charge up plenty of gadgets on the way.
