    I like it but... I still want to see what, if anything, they have done to the interior to fix some of its design "flaws" so to speak.

    Encore's are flying off the lots and this will only help. Kudo's to GM for keeping the Encore fresh.

    I think its a good looking little CUV. I love the side profile

    Looks good for the size class, kind of hard to make a small vehicle look well proportioned....

    Oh yeah, that's the stuff. My brother misses his Encore (totaled by cell phone driver) and may be interested in another one when his Vue is paid off.

    I love the new front end treatment, especially the little body colored "winglets" that go into the lower air intake area.

    I agree, a vehicle that size always is a bit odd in proportions but this looks pretty nice for the class. I think this is a nice improvement over the current vehicle in my opinion.

    Re: 2017 Encore Debuts Early

    My dad has a 2013. I took it on a 250 mile road trip Wed/Thurs of this week. I'm 6'2" and was very comfortable. It handled the big hills around Pittsburgh well. My biggest complaint would be the center console area, that flip down flimsy armrest is a joke on long trips.

    It reminds me of their previous vehicle, a Vibe. Only more comfortable, smoother in every sense (especially the engine NVH), and better looking. Smoother than the 2.4 in my new Equinox, with none of the minor resonance I get in 6th gear at 30-40% throttle.

    Wish they would have offered the wheels that are going to be on the Mokka.

    Well, they're both blue and they both have wheels and headlights, but the similarity declines from there.
    BTW, it's good to see some 50s-60s colors returning to the roads. Keep it up boyz!

    Agree, that grille is one generic parts-bin-looking item. I'd rather see the toothy Buick grille than Generic Camry Parts.

    The changes to this and the Trax look much better than before. Nice.
