2018 Buick Encore vs. 2018 MINI MINI-Countryman Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Encore offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the MINI MINI-Countryman, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Buick Encore and the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Convenience
With the MINI MINI-Countryman, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Buick Encore, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Encore will have less of an impact on your bank account than the MINI MINI-Countryman. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Buick Encore is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Encore is much slimmer than the MINI MINI-Countryman, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Buick Encore takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Drivetrain
The Buick Encore has much lower torque than the MINI MINI-Countryman, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Buick Encore has a smaller turning radius than the MINI MINI-Countryman, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Buick Encore has a little less horsepower than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Encore and the MINI MINI-Countryman. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Buick Encore as you will in the MINI MINI-Countryman.

Warranty
The Buick Encore comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI MINI-Countryman.
