If you have a young driver in your family, you want to make sure they are driving something reliable that doesn’t break your budget. Recently, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and Consumer Reports named 2016 and newer Buick Encore models safe for teens while still being budget-friendly.
The IIHS and CR come together each year to create a list of safe
and affordable pre-owned vehicles for new drivers. The vehicles on this list are
divided into “best choice” and “good choice” options in different segments.
The 2016 and newer Buick Encore earned the higher “best
choice” ranking. In order to receive this recognition, the Encore had to have “good”
ratings in four IIHS crash tests and an “acceptable” or “good” rating in the
driver-side small overlap front test. It also needed to perform well in NHTSA
Beyond its reliable design and wealth of safety technologies
available, the Encore is an excellent choice for your teen, thanks to its
well-appointed interior. Whether your teen is cruising around Stillwater,
Oklahoma, or driving to and from college, they’ll appreciate the SUV’s
comfortable interior, spacious layout, and advanced connectivity options.
