Don’t be fooled by the small size of the Buick Encore and Envision — these vehicles are packed with advanced safety features and technologies. In fact, both vehicles just earned spots on U.S. News & World Report’s “20 Safest Small SUVs of 2019” list, cementing their status at the forefront of automotive safety.

Street-Smart 2019 Encore Is Smart on Safety

The 2019 Encore boasts an array of smart safety features, including a standard 10-airbag system and StabiliTrak® system.

Recognizing the Encore’s stellar credentials, the NHTSA awarded the vehicle with a four-star rating in the rollover tests and a five-star rating in all other crash tests.

Sophisticated Envision Offers State-of-the-Art Driver-Assist Features

The 2019 Envision is equally impressive, if not more so. Along with the features that the Encore has to offer, the Envision offers Teen Driver technology, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, a Safety Alert Seat, Lane Keep Assist, and more. In addition, the 2019 Envision earned a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA, which included five-star ratings in the side crash tests.

Fun Summer Activities

Getting out and having fun in the summer weather may start in June, but the fun keeps on rolling until later August. That’s a lot of time to fill which means you might run short on fun activities for friends and family. Fortunately, you’re not alone in your summer adventures. We here at Richard Karr Motors know of some fun summer activities to take part in this season!

Take a Road Trip

Packing up your truck or SUV and hitting the open road opens up the potential for a fantastic memory-making road trip. Even singles can hit the road and experience something new that they may have never seen or heard of before. There are plenty of interesting places around the United States that are best explored in an off-road-capable truck, like the GMC Canyon. Best of all, a truck can double as a bed with just a few accessories!

Have a Picnic

Whether you’re alone or with friends and family, having a picnic at a local park is a great way to spend a summer day. Pack a basket with your favorite foods, like sandwiches and cookies, grab a blanket, and set out for a wonderful day under the summer sun.

Sit Outside

Most people are fully aware of just how hot it can get under the summer sun. Sometimes it can feel too hot to engage in any activity. Fortunately, just sitting around outside is a great way to enjoy the day until the temperature drops in the evening.
