Sporty drving wrapped in a tidy, luxury package.By NormSV650, Jun 11, 2014I went with the all-wheel drive(AWD) Encore as there is no penalty over the FWD. The driving experience is very rewarding as the controls are all require light inputs from the steering to the brakes. The handling really surprises me as it handles as good as my Verano yet rides as smooth as most cars. The highway noise is muted with the Bose Active Cancellation and it works really well as the radio volume can be low that a conversations to rear passengers are not drowned out in bass from the rear speakers. The seats are firm in the base model but day long drives are not fatiguing as there is plenty of room in any seat for adjusting body positions during multiple hour drives. Storage can be tight but if front passenger seat is folded down it is almost 65 cubic feet of cargo area. With larger door height openings than sedans it make it very easy to jump in and out. The fuel economy has been the biggest surprise with lowest of 32-33 mpg house hunting to almost 40 mpg on the highway. ...moreManual transmission mode rev match down shifting.

Upscale and premium, packed with techBy Mac Tomis, Jun 11, 2014The Encore is the best vehicle I've owned with a quiet interior and plenty of space packed in a compact crossover. I'm averaging 27 mpg, which is respectable for a car of this size, and paying less than $30,000 makes it a real good deal. My only major complain is its lack of power and some of my taller/bigger friends have complained that the back seats are a little tight. ...moreQuiet interior, plenty of high-tech features
