NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2023
The Encore subcompact crossover was freshened four years ago and likely will get another update in 2023 before a redesign in 2025. Over the past year, Buick has eliminated the upper trim levels of the Encore and is now down to just the base model, which has helped sales, Buick said. Buick sold 102,402 Encores in the U.S. last year, up 10 percent. But in the first half of 2020, Encore sales plunged 50 percent, though the vehicle remained the brand’s top seller.
