2016 Buick Encore in Covington LA- Safety

So who has the edge when it comes to keeping you and your family safe?  According to Advanta-Star's research it's the 2016 Subaru Forester.  One of the main features that you get with Forester is whiplash protection.  The Forester comes standard with Anti-Whiplash seats.  The Encore doesn't even offer this as an upgrade.  Another great feature on the Forester is Subaru's optional EyeSight™ System.  Not only does the EysSight™ System warn you of a possible collision, it will apply the brake at full force to reduce the impact or even help avoid the collision.  While  the Encore does offer a collision warning system, it does not offer an automated braking system to help avoid or reduce the impact of a collision.

The 2016 Buick Encore in Covington, LA is at another disadvantage when it comes to safety...offering an all wheel drive system, or AWD.  The Subaru Forester, like all Subaru's except for the BRZ, offers AWD as a standard feature.  AWD is available on the Encore but comes at an additional cost.  The Forester also outperformed the Encore in the National Highway Safety Administration's  35 mph front crash test.  When it comes to safety the Forester is the clear winner.

So how does the 2016 Buick Encore in Covington, LA stack up against the Forester when it comes to reliability, the warranty, and the engine?  The Forester offers an unlimited mile warranty when it comes to corrosion.  The Encore only offers corrosion protection up to 100,000 miles.  When it comes to reliability Consumer Reports says the Forester will be 42% better than the Encore.  The Forester's famous Boxer Engine also beats the Encore in almost every major category. The standard 2.5 SOCH  on the Forester beats the Encore in 0 to 30, 0 to 60, 45 to 65, the quarter mile, and top speed in the quarter mile.  To get a detailed look at these numbers CLICK HERE.
