Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Encore GX than in the Toyota C-HR, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota C-HR offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Encore GX, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota C-HR as you will with the Buick Encore GX, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Toyota C-HR will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Buick Encore GX. 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 Toyota C-HR and the Buick Encore GX have similar Destination Charges.
