​Let’s face it—shopping for a new car can be stressful! There are more models to choose from than ever before, and the numerous advancements in performance and technology make it even more confusing to decide what you need and what you don’t.

If you’re considering buying or leasing a new vehicle but don’t know where to start, we’ve got a suggestion: the 2017 Buick Encore. Making this year’s U.S. News ‘9 Best New Cars for Older Drivers’ list, the compact SUV is a practical choice with plenty of benefits for seniors.

Safe for You, Safe for Your Grandkids

One of the most important features on any vehicle is safety, especially if you travel with your grandchildren in the back. The Encore boasts high safety scores, including a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Administration for Highway Safety, so you can count on the SUV to protect you and your family. It also comes standard with OnStar safety telematics, which can automatically call for help in the event of a collision.

Another neat feature on the 2017 Encore is the rearview camera, which gives you a clear picture of the rear of your vehicle so that you can back up safely and confidently.

Comfortable for Drivers and Passengers Alike

As we get older, climbing in and out of vehicles can become strenuous, and sitting for long periods of time can irritate back and shoulder pain. However, when you test drive the 2017 Encore in Scottsdale, you’ll find that it’s both roomy and comfortable!

Standard features like the six-way power driver seat with power lumbar and tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel make it easy to adjust to your liking, while select trims tack on additional amenities like an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel and dual-zone automatic temperature control.

Easy-to-Use Technology

If you’re more tech-savvy than most, you’ll definitely enjoy the Encore’s range of equipment. All models come with the standard CD player plus satellite radio, two USB connectors, an auxiliary port and an 8-inch touchscreen media player with Bluetooth and smartphone integration.

Don’t worry if you’re less tech-perienced—our knowledgeable salespeople will be able to help you learn how to utilize these features.
