Just a few minutes ago, Buick released a teaser image of the Encore — its new compact five-passenger crossover. The design of the front facia appears similar to the new Verano compact sedan, with the primary projector-style headlamp carrying the blue Buick tinge that’s become synonymous with the brand.
Buick released the photo accompanied by the following description:
Get ready for the 2013 Buick Encore, an all-new stylish crossover that seats up to five passengers and debuts at the 2012 North American International Auto Show next month. In the coming weeks, we’ll reveal a full photo of the Encore as we get closer to its official reveal on Jan. 10. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details!
Some other elements of the Encore that meet the eye:
- Headlamp enclosure has a horizontally-placed plastic insert — not sure how we feel about this quite yet
- Small Buick logo on the inside headlamp
- Single parking sensor on the front bumper
- Hood portholes
- Body-mounted mirrors
