I can't imagine that Buick looking very "hot-rod", even with big fat tires...

Somebody pointed out the Fiat has more HP for less bux : 2016 Fiat 500x vs 2015 Buick Encore

there's always the sound thing with the fiat though. i mean people laughing and little kids saying it sounds like tire popped can't be very "hot rod" either. it surely wouldn't bolster my ego

My oldest son, and his Fiancee each bought one. Her's is a 2013 (black) and his is a 2014 (blue). They both love them and they do NOT like PT Cruisers.

I've driven both. Both turbos, and both auto-stick. They're OK, and like I said in another post, they are nothing more than gussied-up PT Cruisers with more upscale options.

They are not as comfortable or as cool-looking to me, but better than a Kia Soul. I've driven them as well. Eh, they are OK. Nothing great.

I've always thought that PT Cruisers established the crossover SUV category. I think one of the mistakes by Chrysler was not doing an AWD PT.

Everyone else focused on the retro styling while I think the crossover SUV concept was really where it was at.

Most all the later crossovers are just generic from the PT.
