The Buick Encore has been on the market for a couple of years, so it comes as little surprise that a facelifted variant was recently spotted undergoing testing in southern Europe.

The Buick Encore has been on the market for a couple of years, so it comes as little surprise that a facelifted variant was recently spotted undergoing testing in southern Europe.

Looking instantly recognizable, the facelifted Encore has a modestly revised front fascia that appears to have a slimmer grille and larger air intakes.  There doesn't appear to be any other modifications but that could change by the time the production model is introduced.

Performance specifications are also shrouded in secrecy but the current model has a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 138 bhp (103 kW) and 148 lb-ft (200 Nm) of torque.
