2019 Buick Encore vs 2019 Chevy Trax

2019 Buick Encore vs 2019 Chevy Trax

Many American car brands have begun to distance themselves from the sedan build, instead focusing more of their time, effort, and money on crossovers and trucks. However, this does alienate some drivers who prefer the compact driving experience and greater fuel economy of a sedan. Therefore, a fairly recent compromise that has been made is the subcompact SUV.

A subcompact SUV is far smaller than other SUVs, helping drivers who feel uncomfortable driving around in larger models. All the while, a subcompact SUV still maintains a great fuel economy while improving upon the cargo capacity of sedan builds. Our comparison today will further demonstrate the capability of subcompact SUVs while finding the superior ride among the two. It’s the 2019 Buick Encore vs the 2019 Chevy Trax!

In addition to being identical in the categories above, the 2019 Buick Encore and the 2019 Chevy Trax are also identical in terms of standard drivetrain, cargo space, and fuel tank capacity. So, where do they differ? How do we find out which subcompact SUV is the better buy?

For that, we’d recommend looking at features and taking each vehicle for a test drive. In terms of features, Buick is the superior choice. Styling itself as an in-between build, Buick models aren’t quite luxury models, but are far more luxurious and professional than more traditional consumer brands, like Chevrolet.

  • Rear Vision Camera
  • Buick Infotainment System with Navigation
