Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Encore than in the Nissan Rogue Sport. The Nissan Rogue Sport 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 Nissan Rogue Sport, 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 Nissan Rogue Sport. 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 Nissan Rogue Sport.

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

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Buick Encore and the Nissan Rogue Sport are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Buick Encore has the same turning radius as the Nissan Rogue Sport, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Buick Encore and the Nissan Rogue Sport.

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