Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox 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 Chevrolet Equinox.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Equinox, 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 Chevrolet Equinox. 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 Chevrolet Equinox have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick Encore GX is a little narrower than the Chevrolet Equinox, 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 Chevrolet Equinox.

Handling
The Buick Encore GX has the same turning radius as the Chevrolet Equinox, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Buick Encore GX has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Powertrain
The Buick Encore GX has much lower torque than the Chevrolet Equinox, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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 Chevrolet Equinox. The Buick Encore GX has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Warranty
The Buick Encore GX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Equinox.
