Got your sights set on one of these compact crossover vehicles that are all the rage these days? It turns out their immense popularity is not for nothing – these comfortable, capable little family haulers are just the right size and stature for today’s most common auto needs and wants. Two models that may have already caught your eye if you’ve started researching which compact crossover to buy are the Buick Encore and the Honda CR-V. While the CR-V seems to be everywhere you look, the Buick Encore is a more refined, feature-rich option for those who might be looking for something a little different than what everyone else is driving.
Today we put these two models head to head. It’s the 2014 Buick Encore vs the 2014 Honda CR-V. Which one’s got more of what you want in a compact crossover? We’ll look at how the two compare in a few key areas for today’s auto shoppers, and you can decide for yourself!
The first thing we want to look at, of course, is price. The Buick model comes in slightly higher in the manufacturer’s recommended price, and this is largely because the Encore is a luxury model by all definitions, and with that in mind it’s still remarkably affordable for having standard features like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, six-speaker audio system with voice control, SiriusXM radio connectivity, and cloth/leatherette seat trim all included. You’ll also notice that the 2014 Buick Encore has more impressive fuel economy numbers and a basic warranty that extends well beyond that of the Honda CR-V. A maintenance warranty for two years or up to 24,000 miles is also included with the purchase of a new 2014 Buick Encore.
