This week, we’re driving the all-new 2020 Buick Encore GX, a compact size SUV that joins sibling Encore as a sub-compact SUV in the Buick family. Delivered in top-tier Essence trim with front-wheel-drive mechanicals, this new GX is a few inches longer in wheelbase and 4 inches longer overall compared to the smaller Encore. The resulting increase in legroom and cargo capacity is most welcome.

The Encore GX lineup includes entry Preferred ($25,095), Select ($26,695) and Essence ($28,500). For AWD, add $2,000 to the front-wheel-drive prices.
