Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Buick Encore GX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Tucson offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Encore GX, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Tucson, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Buick Encore GX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 GX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Tucson. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Buick Encore GX and the Hyundai Tucson have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Encore GX is much slimmer than the Hyundai Tucson, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Buick Encore GX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Tucson.

Performance
The Buick Encore GX has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Tucson.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Buick Encore GX and the Hyundai Tucson are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Encore GX and the Hyundai Tucson. The Buick Encore GX has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Tucson.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Encore GX is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Tucson.
