Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Encore than in the Toyota C-HR. The Toyota C-HR offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Encore, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Encore as you will with the Toyota C-HR, 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 Toyota C-HR. 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 Toyota C-HR.

Dimensions
The Buick Encore is about the same width as the Toyota C-HR. The Buick Encore is slightly shorter than the Toyota C-HR, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Buick Encore transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota C-HR.

Handling
The Buick Encore has a larger turning radius than the Toyota C-HR, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Buick Encore has a little less horsepower than the Toyota C-HR.

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

Warranty
