Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Rogue 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 Nissan Rogue.

Convenience
With the Nissan Rogue, 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 Nissan Rogue. 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 Nissan Rogue.

Dimensions
The Buick Encore GX is a little narrower than the Nissan Rogue, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Nissan Rogue.

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

Performance
The Buick Encore GX has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Rogue.

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 Nissan Rogue. The Buick Encore GX has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Rogue.

Warranty
The Buick Encore GX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Rogue.
