- Buick Ownership
In a week I will take possession of my new ride - a 2020 Encore-GX, select with advanced tech, Burnished bronze with beige interior. The colour was a compromise, especially the beige interior but I have already bought a supply of Scotchgard auto in preparation. I wanted to avoid red, black, white or grey exteriors and was prepared to accept any other choice of colour. In Canada the new Encore first arrived in showrooms in March but I had a good first look at the car in January at the Montreal auto show. My lease on my 2016 Sonata was up in June and after the Montreal show I had pretty well decided that I would probably decide between the new 2020 Sonata or the GX. Both arrived in local dealerships in March and my wife and I test drove both vehicles before the covid-19 shutdown. We both liked both choices but as we had accumulated a lot of GM visa points the scales were tipped towards the GX. The GX I test-drove impressed me with its handling. It felt well-planted and stable on the road, almost like a sedan. in addition it was easier to get in and out of without needing to climb into, something that was becoming an issue with our aging bodies. I will try to post an update in a couple of weeks.
