For what its worth. We bought a 2012 Honda CRV after owning three earlier year models. Big mistake! We hated it. After two months of uncomfortable driving, we traded it for a 2012 Buick Enclave. The Enclave is very comfortable, roomy and is a great tow vehicle.
I saw the Encore at a Sacramento Car Show last October. The spokesperson said it was towable, four down. However, to be sure, read the owner's manual. I would never trust a spokesperson at a sales event, nor a salesman.
