When we saw the 2013 Buick Encore in person at the 2012 North American International Auto Show, the cute little crossover stared back at us with a sense of promise and the modernized direction of Buick as a brand. We won’t be able to drive it for quite some time, but it does carry the preliminary credentials to do well in the young urban family demographic just as much as with modernized empty-nesters. We just hope that the 1.4L boosted Ecotec engine is enough to power the 3,190-pound crossover out of its own way.
Then, there’s this video, with its piano music and its dramatic, slow CGI panning… it’s… romantic. There. I said it. It makes me want to cuddle, if only for the two-minute duration of the video.
