2015 Jeep Compass vs. 2015 Buick Encore Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Buick Encore. The Jeep Compass offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Encore, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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). Clearly, the Jeep Compass is a better financial choice over the Buick Encore, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Jeep Compass will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Buick Encore.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Compass is much wider than the Buick Encore, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Compass, which is slightly longer than the Buick Encore.

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

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Compass and the Buick Encore. With the Jeep Compass, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Buick Encore.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Compass is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick Encore.
