Buick Encore GX Named a Top Choice for Teen Drivers
Teens face higher crash risks behind the wheel than adults, so it’s especially important to make sure your beginning driver is inside a vehicle that’s highly rated for safety and quality. According to a recent study by Consumer Reports, the 2022 Buick Encore GX fits the bill perfectly and earns a ranking among the best new cars for teen drivers.
So what qualifies a vehicle to appear on this list of safest rides for teens? Per Consumer Reports, criteria include “good” ratings in IIHS crash tests, standard forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking tech, easy-to-use controls, and solid performance in on-road braking and handling tests.
The Encore GX’s Essence trim (the one specifically recommended by Consumer Reports) meets all these standards and more. It boasts a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the IIHS, performs well in driving tests, and comes with a wide range of standard and available safety features.
Along with collision prevention systems, your teen will have the support of technologies like Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. In addition, the Encore GX comes equipped with Teen Driver, a system that allows you to track your teen’s driving habits and set limits on speed, audio volume, and more.
