Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass 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 Jeep Compass.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Encore GX as you will with the Jeep Compass, 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 Buick Encore GX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Compass.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Encore GX is much slimmer than the Jeep Compass, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Buick Encore GX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Compass.

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

Performance
The Buick Encore GX has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Compass.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Buick Encore GX and the Jeep Compass 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 Jeep Compass. The Buick Encore GX has less cargo space than the Jeep Compass, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Encore GX than that of the Jeep Compass.
