The subcompact Buick Encore crossover is the brand’s top seller. Built in South Korea, it shares DNA with the Chevrolet Sonic. The 2013 edition comes powered by a 1.4-liter engine, and while it’s not particularly quick, it is sufficient to propel this little SUV. It’s especially well finished on the inside.

Average base model retail prices:

  • 2014: $10,000
  • 2013: $8,700
