As one of the tried-and-true models in the Buick model lineup, the flashy 2021 Buick Encore GX has plenty to offer drivers in the Kenosha, WI area. With its superior handling and intuitive features, the model is primed for success as a compact crossover.
But when compared to other models in its class – such as the 2021 Honda HR-V, how does it stack up? At Palmen GM, we compare the 2021 Buick Encore GX to the HR-V below:

|1.2-Liter 3-Cylinder Turbo
||Torque (in ft-lbs)
||Adaptive Cruise Control
|29 MPG||Combined Estimated Fuel Economy||30 MPG|

When comparing the two models above, the 2021 Buick Encore GX provides a unique experience. While the HR-V provides slightly more horsepower, the Encore GX makes up for it with sharp handling and a comfortable ride. Its key advantage comes in the standard 162 ft-lbs of torque, it offers improved acceleration while retaining a similar combined fuel economy. Plus, standard 2021 Buick Encore GX models have access to Adaptive Cruise Control at the base trim; the 2021 Honda HR-V does not. As another bonus, you can customize your model much more with the nine available color options.
