2017 Buick Encore gets handsome facelift

The Buick Encore is following in the footsteps of its twin compact crossover, the Chevrolet Trax, with a mid-cycle refresh that echoes the looks of the 2017 LaCrosse sedan.

Like the Trax, which has been made over for the 2017 model year, the 2017 Encore gets a more familial look based on the design of the Buick Avenir Concept unveiled last year.

Inside, the Encore gets new dashboard and centre stack designs, highlighted by a frameless eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system running Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while push-button start has been added.

It's set to go on sale this fall.

Buick is also bringing its Envision midsize crossover to North America this year.
