2018 Buick Encore: Virginia Loves This Luxury Subcompact Crossover

If you haven't been paying attention to the automotive industry for a while, you've missed out on one of the greatest resurgences in the business. Buick has quietly but steadily released a slew of new models that are becoming more and more popular on the roads around Charlottesville and Martinsville, VA.

Buick also made sure to include all the latest and greatest technology options in the 2018 Enclave. Buick has released three new luxury crossovers in recent years, and the one that's really opening up some eyes is the Buick Encore.

The 2018 Encore is technically classified as a subcompact crossover, but it's so much more than that. One of the best facets of the Encore is that it provides a luxury-class interior without a premium luxury price. For 2018, Buick is making the Encore available in six trim levels: Preferred, Encore 1SV, Preferred II, Sport Touring, Essence, and Premium. Each one comes supremely equipped with luxury features.

As noted earlier, these luxury features don't come with the exorbitant cost you usually get from typical luxury models. In a way, the 2018 Encore sits in a unique position of offering a first-class experience compared to similar offerings from Toyota, Honda, and Nissan, but saves you far more money than if you opt for a BMW or Lexus model.

Here's even better news:

When you shop for a 2018 Buick Encore at our Bedford, VA auto dealership, you can take advantage of monthly special offers. We take Buick factory incentives and combine them with our discounts in order to save you big money on Buick Envision, Encore, and even Enclave models.

The 2018 Buick Encore's Luxury Interior

The 2018 Encore may be technically classified as a compact or subcompact crossover, but the interior is incredibly spacious. It's also loaded up with premium features and technology.

The heated/leather-wrapped steering wheel is standard on all trim levels of the 2018 Encore. There is also a plethora of available features you can opt for, including heated driver/front passenger seats and dual-zone climate control.

The 2018 Encore also utilizes QuietTuning™ technology to provide one of the quietest interiors of any luxury vehicle on the road. This feature includes triple door sealing, acoustic laminated glass, and special suspension tuning to minimize road/outside noise while driving.

Buick also made sure to include all the latest and greatest technology options in the 2018 Enclave. You'll enjoy the benefit of Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and available options like a navigation system and SiriusXM satellite radio. The technology, however, doesn't stop there.

Ever on the forefront of advanced safety technology, Buick has also made driver-assistance features like Side Blind Zone Alert, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert available on the 2018 Encore.
