The Buick Encore subcompact SUV is built in China by Shanghai-GM at its Yantai factory in Shandong. It was released on October 10, 2012. Only one engine option has been provided, a turbo-charged 1.4 liter of 103kW and 200Nm (the small ECOTEC engine on the 2012/13 models is imported, while for 2014 a locally built will be employed).

The China-built Encore gets significantly less features than the US version. In particular, to reduce cost, the multi-link rear suspension has been replaced by the torsion beam, non-independent type.

Sales have been lackluster. In 2013, with 61,563 deliveries, the Encore ranked the 18th most popular SUV in China. In 2014, 82,346 units were delivered.
