08. The 2013 Buick Encore Provides A Smooth, Quiet Ride
The 2013 Buick Encore is notable for the fact that unlike typical small crossover vehicles, it has been tuned to provide the level of ride quality that is expected from a modern Buick. What this means is that from the inside, the Buick Encore is as quiet as a hermetically-sealed box, with active noise cancellation drowning out unwanted intrusion from street or engine sounds into the cabin. The vehicle's suspension system balances steering feel and handling with comfort, absorbing pavement insults without disturbing occupants or introducing instability into the crossover's driving dynamics. The Encore's debut in fact marks the first time that Buick has availed itself of active noise cancellation, making it a pioneer for the brand in more ways than one.
