 What’s New for the 2015 Buick Encore?

The 2015 Buick Encore has remained mostly unchanged for the model year. OnStar’s 4G LTE data connection, the ability to create a Wi-Fi network, and a few new safety options stand out as the only significant differences from the 2014 model.

The 2015 Buick Encore’s exterior is made to look tough. The front of the car has the recognizable Buick grille and rides on 18-inch wheels. While the center of the car looks a little small, the molded rear bumper shield returns that tough appearance.

2015 Buick Encore Interior

The interior of the 2015 Buick Encore not only says “premium,” it screams it. The center stack is full of controls, some wood trim, and metal-looking accents. Blue LEDs provide cabin lighting. The interior feels larger than it actually is and while it may scream “premium,” you won’t hear it over the quiet, calming design.
