The small Encore crossover has been Buick’s best-selling car for years now. The 2024 Encore GX (the smaller non-GX model is discontinued) gets the brand’s new face from the Wildcat concept vehicle, a new instrument panel and the reimagined Tri-Shield logo. Is this enough to temp buyers away from mainstream competitors like Mazda CX-30, Honda HR-V or Kia Seltos (or even spendy rigs like Audi Q3, BMW X1, Mercedes GLA or Volvo XC 40)? Tom Voelk checks out a mid-level trim Sport Touring model with the popular option packages.
