BUICK
ENCORE
LUXURY THAT FITS YOUR LIFE.
ALL IN A SIZE THAT FITS YOU.
THE NEXT BIG
THING IN LUXURY
IS SMALL.
With you as inspiration, Buick created Encore. It’s not only sized to fit tight spaces and crowded
streets, but your life as well. A versatile crossover that’s as adaptable as you are. Quickly discover
how it turns “nimble” into an active verb, giving you luxury, utility and comfort without all the bulk.
Making Encore the travel companion you’ve always wanted.

THE FAMILY RESEMBLANCE
IS QUITE STRIKING.
Encore has Buick signature design cues like a waterfall grille, ice-blue-accented projector-beam headlamps and chrome portholes. From sketch
to sheet metal, Encore carves out its own blend of Buick style and confidence in a decidedly efficient package. Large 18" aluminum wheels
are standard, or there are optional chrome wheels. Either way, this is a new style of luxury designed to fit almost anywhere. Enjoy.
IT’S AMAZING WHAT
YOU CAN DO WHEN ALL
WHEELS COLLABORATE.
Encore’s available All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system doesn’t ask you to push buttons. It constantly monitors traction, and
whenever it detects slip, AWD is automatically activated. Power is delivered to the front or rear wheels with the best
grip. To help manoeuvre city streets and winding country roads, Encore’s handling is beyond nimble. Its 11.2 metre
(36.7-foot) turning diameter and variable-effort electronic power steering enable quick, precise moves. Its 2555 mm
(100.6-inch) wheelbase and broad 1540 mm (60.6-inch) stance also provide a confident driving feel, while a solid
structure enables a refined, quiet ride.

HEAR WHAT QUIET
SOUNDS LIKE.
Encore’s QuietTuning technology reduces, blocks and absorbs noise — helping to keep the quiet in and the
noise out. A laminated windshield, triple door seals and tight body panel tolerances make it all possible. But we
didn’t stop there. Bose ® Active Noise Cancellation is standard. Unwanted sounds fade into the background,
thanks to technology also found in noise-cancelling headphones. This way you can hear yourself think, chat
and, of course, enjoy the available Bose premium seven-speaker audio system that fills Encore with the kind
of sounds you love to listen to.
TURN ENCORE INTO YOUR
MOBILE ENTERTAINMENT
Centre. JUST SAY THE WORD.
Use your voice to control the Buick IntelliLink1 interactive audio system, or tell the optional Navigation System2 what you’re looking for. Your
compatible smartphone connects via Bluetooth®3 to Encore’s high-resolution, 178 mm (7-inch) diagonal LCD screen. With the ease of advanced voice
recognition (or steering-wheel-mounted controls), you have access to audio apps on your phone such as StitcherTM SmartRadio and SiriusXM Satellite
Radio4 (with 3-month trial). IntelliLink also automatically stores your phone contacts for quick access. There’s even a USB port3 and an available 110-volt
outlet to connect your other electronic devices. You’re doing all of this while keeping your hands on the wheel and eyes squarely on the road.
IntelliLink functionality varies by model. Full functionality requires compatible Bluetooth and smartphone, and USB connectivity for some devices. IntelliLink on Encore does not include functionality such as

SO ALERT, IT’S LIKE HAVING
YOUR OWN COPILOT.
New for 2014, the available Rear Cross Traffic Alert makes you aware of approaching traffic
when backing up, while the available Side Blind Zone Alert 1 uses radar to warn you when
a vehicle is in your side-mirror blind spot. Encore’s available FORWARD COLLISION ALERT
a
and available Lane Departure Warning use sophisticated digital imaging technology to
help you avoid trouble before it happens. Forward Collision Alert provides audible and visual cues
if you’re quickly approaching another vehicle and the system senses a collision may occur. Lane
Departure Warning lets you know if you happen to wander from your lane without using your turn
signal. Available front and rear parK assist is designed to help the driver park and avoid
obstacles while manoeuvring. Ultrasonic sensors detect objects in front of and behind the vehicle. When
the system detects an object, it provides audible alerts through Encore’s speakers. Low-toned beeps
from the rear speakers indicate an object at the rear; high-toned beeps from the front speakers
indicate an object in front of Encore. The faster the beeps, the closer the object. And a standard

helps you see objects while in reverse. We also gave Encore 10 standard
air bags, including dual front, head curtain side, front and outboard-mounted rear-seat side-impact
2
air bags and even driver and front-passenger knee bags.
And with the OnStar Directions & Connections plan,3 standard for 6 months, Automatic
Crash Response can get you help fast even if you can’t ask for it. Plus, with the OnStar RemoteLink4 c
A
smartphone app, you have access to real-time info (fuel level, remaining oil life, tire pressure,5 etc.)
about your Encore.
Before making a lane change, always check the Side Blind Zone Alert display, check the exterior and interior rearview mirrors, look over your shoulder
for vehicles and hazards and start the turn signal. 2Always use safety belts and child restraints. Children are safer when properly secured in a rear

INSIDE ENCORE,
THERE’S ROOM
FOR JUST ABOUT
ANYTHING.
INCLUDING
YOUR NEXT TRIP.
You and your friends are planning to head out of town and hit the road. No worries. With
available all-wheel drive, innate manoeuvrability and flexible space inside that adapts to almost
anything, Encore can take you there. Today’s luxury means having the versatility to move around
town with ease during the week and the capacity to handle your weekend adventures without
leaving anything behind. That’s where Encore comes in.
FLIP. FOLD. REPEAT.
When you’re out and about, wouldn’t it be nice to easily adapt to whatever comes your way? Like being able to pick up
all the supplies you’ll need for a getaway? Or having plenty of seating so you can travel comfortably in style? The answer
is yes. Encore’s five-passenger seating easily transforms to cargo space with front-passenger and second-row seats that
fold flat. Flip the second-row seats down and nearly 1371 litres (48.4 cubic feet) is yours to play with.1 Even with the rear
seats up, you have almost 533 litres (18.8 cubic feet) of room.1
