Much like the Buick Envision, the Buick Encore is exactly the right product at the right time. The subcompact/B-segment crossover saw 78,565 deliveries in 2016 and is on track to reach 85,000 sales or more in 2017. And for the 2018 model year, the tiny CUV is getting a handful of minor changes and updates for the 2018 model year.
The 2018 Encore replaces the River Rock Metallic exterior color with the Coppertino Metallic color. In addition, there are new painted, custom-molded splash guards as well as capless fuel filler feature.
Finally, the range-topping Premium (1SN) trim level sees the addition of an ionizing air cleaner system.
