Brother stopped bye and we looked at his 2017 Buick Encore (Preffered Package). Exterior of the car looks really nice and the 18" tires are sharp too. But I was comparing a 2014 to a 2017, the interior layout of our 2014 LT2 is more user friendly I think. The Buick provides more bling... large touch screen, more instrument displays etc, but things like the 110 v outlet, usb port look all hidden tucked away in the bottom of a cubby hole. The Trax has way more little compartments for holding items in the front dash. This is a bare bones model Buick but being a Buick I still expected to be wowed more ? Maybe the wow comes in the ride and quieter ride etc...? Makes me appreciate the Trax layout a little more for us anyway.
