The exterior design of the 2016 Buick Encore hasn't changed much since 2015, but the eye-catching design features still stand out from other vehicles on the road. The iconic waterfall grille and tall roofline on the Encore give it a unique appearance when compared to the more traditional Toyota RAV4. Under the hood, both SUVs come with a standard 1.4-Liter I-4 engine, but the Buick Encore's 28 miles per gallon in the city and 34 miles per gallon on the highway race ahead of the RAV4. Both vehicles offer optional all-wheel drive, making it easy to enjoy a little extra confidence in tough road conditions and snowy Wisconsin winters.
Looking to the interior, the Buick brand is known for creating a sense of luxury, and the 2016 Buick Encore is no exception. Leatherette trim on comfortable seats for up to five passengers inside the Encore feels more relaxed and luxurious than the simple cloth seats on the base trim of the RAV4. Both vehicles come with a standard first-row LCD touchscreen and Bluetooth compatibility for making hands-free phone calls. Six-speaker audio systems inside both SUVs can be controlled through the LCD screen or the steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. On top of that, the Buick and the RAV4 each offer a standard auxiliary input, making it easy to play media through your portable electronic devices.
