Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Buick Encore than the Jeep Renegade. The Jeep Renegade will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Encore.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Encore as you will with the Jeep Renegade, 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). The Buick Encore is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Renegade. 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 Jeep Renegade.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Encore is much slimmer than the Jeep Renegade, 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 Jeep Renegade.

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

Handling
The Buick Encore has the same turning radius as the Jeep Renegade, 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 Jeep Renegade.

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 Renegade. The Buick Encore has less cargo space than the Jeep Renegade, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Buick Encore comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Renegade.
