The GX is not a trim level of the smaller Encore, it's a new vehicle on an entirely different platform.

The interior looks fine, but the materials are poor.

The Encore GX's suspension is nicely tuned for daily driving.

Inside, there's plenty of room for passengers.

Unfortunately, the Encore GX doesn't feel all that nicer than the budget-minded Chevy Trailblazer on which it's based.
