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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Buick Encore GX and the Hyundai Tucson.

Convenience

Cost

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 GX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Tucson.
