Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Encore than in the FIAT 500X. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Buick Encore and the FIAT 500X.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Encore as you will with the FIAT 500X, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 FIAT 500X. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Buick Encore carries a much lower Destination Charge than the FIAT 500X.

Dimensions
The Buick Encore is about the same width as the FIAT 500X. When looking at overall length, the Buick Encore takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the FIAT 500X.

Drivetrain
The Buick Encore has much lower torque than the FIAT 500X, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Buick Encore has the same turning radius as the FIAT 500X, 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 FIAT 500X.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Encore and the FIAT 500X. The Buick Encore has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the FIAT 500X.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Encore is not as nearly as extensive as that of the FIAT 500X.
