Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Renegade than in the Buick Encore GX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Renegade will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Encore GX.

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 Jeep Renegade.
