2016 Buick Encore vs. 2016 Jeep Compass Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Buick Encore, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Compass offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Encore, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Buick Encore requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Compass, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Jeep Compass, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Buick Encore will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jeep Compass.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Encore is much slimmer than the Jeep Compass, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Buick Encore is slightly shorter than the Jeep Compass, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Buick Encore doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Compass.

Handling
The Buick Encore has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Compass, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Buick Encore has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Compass.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Encore and the Jeep Compass. The Buick Encore has less cargo space than the Jeep Compass, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Encore than that of the Jeep Compass.
