All About the Interior

One of the major differences that you will notice between the 2018 Buick Encore and the 2018 Ford Escape is the interiors of these two vehicles. The Encore features a refined interior with quality materials and an organized arrangement, while the Escape’s interior features a lot of hard plastic and a louder interior than the Encore. The Encore features an active noise cancellation that uses the car’s speakers to send out sound-cancelling sound waves that give you the quiet, comfortable ride that you have been looking for.

Sleek and Sporty

The first time that you lay eyes on the 2018 Buick Encore you will be captivated. That is due to many things, first among them being the bold, aggressive styling that you will find all throughout. The sculpted grill and fascia transition back into a sleek line that flows throughout the vehicle. The 2018 Ford Escape, on the other hand, gives you practical, albeit quirky, looks that lack the exciting feel of the Encore.

First Hand Is Best
