2022 Buick Encore GX Earns Top Safety Pick Rating from IIHS

2022 Buick Encore GX Essence | Bellefontaine, OH

The experts at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently named the 2022 Buick Encore GX a Top Safety Pick for its impressive crash test performance.[1] Here’s a look at what sets this small SUV apart from the crowd.

Crash-test ratings

The Encore GX earned the Institute’s highest rating on all six crash tests. On top of that, the IIHS had high praise for its driver-assist tech tools. Its standard Automatic Emergency Braking feature earned a “Superior” rating for its performance in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian tests.

Aside from its high-tech safety features, the IIHS also praised the model for its LATCH system, which makes it easier to install child safety seats. Reviewers liked that the LATCH system was easy to identify and locate — and that it didn’t require much force to secure properly.

Advanced safety features

Every 2022 Buick Encore GX comes loaded with the Buick Driver Confidence package. This suite of six technologies includes Intellibeam® headlamps, Front Pedestrian Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and the Following Distance Indicator.
