Looking at the exteriors of both the Buick Encore and the Chevy Equinox, it's easy to see the similar shape and influences. The rounded edges and aerodynamic build make both of these crossovers fuel efficient and stylish. The Buick's fuel economy rating outranks the Equinox in the city and on the highway. Achieving only 22 miles per gallon in the city and 32 miles per gallon on the highway, the Chevy Equinox's 2.4-Liter I-4 engine will cost you more time and money at the gas station than the Buick Encore. Under the hood of the Encore, you'll find a standard 1.4-liter inline-four-cylinder engine that gets 28 miles per gallon in the city and 34 miles per gallon on the highway. The responsive drive in both the Equinox and the Encore make them fun to drive, but the fuel efficiency of the Encore sets it ahead of the competition.
Looking to the interior, it's clear that the 2016 Encore has a more naturally luxurious appeal. The cloth seating for up to five passengers is made more impressive with the addition of leatherette trim inside the Encore. A first-row LCD screen and Bluetooth compatibility come standard on both the Equinox and the Encore, meaning you can easily control your audio system and enjoy your favorite tunes wirelessly while behind the wheel. Inside the 2016 Buick Encore, you'll find the luxury and quality of design you have come to expect from the Buick brand, but with the addition of versatile cargo space and a modern exterior.
