2016 Buick Encore vs. 2016 Honda CR-V Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V than in the Buick Encore, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Buick Encore offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Honda CR-V requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Buick Encore, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Buick Encore is somewhat more expensive than the Honda CR-V. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Buick Encore and the Honda CR-V have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Encore is much slimmer than the Honda CR-V, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Buick Encore, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda CR-V.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Buick Encore doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda CR-V.

Handling
The Buick Encore has the same turning radius as the Honda CR-V, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Encore has a lot less horsepower than the Honda CR-V.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Encore and the Honda CR-V. The Buick Encore has significantly less cargo capacity than the Honda CR-V.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Encore than that of the Honda CR-V.
