Buick continues to be one of the safest automakers in the world, consistently offering a lineup of models that score highly on the industry’s top safety exams. In fact, the 2017 Buick Encore was just named the third new Buick with a 5-Star Safety Rating from the NHTSA.
Specifically, the Buick Encore scored five stars in both the front and side impact tests, and scored four stars in the rollover test – leading to an overall score of five. The Encore joins the new Buick Cascada and Buick Regal with this prestigious score.
The standard safety features available in the new Buick Encore include antilock brakes, brake assist, a rearview camera, 10 airbags, and more, while optional features include side blind-zone alert, rear park assist, forward collision alert, and lane departure warning.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has been operating its 5-Star Safety Rating Program for decades. In recent years, it has stood out among other safety scorers by offering a rollover crash rating.
