The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) put the Buick Encore’s safety to the test recently and the Encore performed superbly, enough so that it earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for both the front- and all-wheel drive models.
With the Encore’s addition, the Buick lineup now includes five models with a 5-Star safety rating, including the Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, and Enclave.
“Consumers are consistently surprised to discover Encore provides the characteristics they expect in our larger offerings – style, sophistication, connectivity and comfort,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick, in a statement. “NHTSA’s evaluation affirms Encore lives up to Buick’s safety reputation.”
The Encore’s safety features include a strong body structure with 66% of it made from high- and ultra-high strength steel to protect passengers. Ten airbags come standard on the Encore protecting passengers in all seating positions.
For even more safety, you can add active safety alerts, including rear cross traffic alert, side blind zone alert, and more.
