There aren't many direct competitors for the Buick Encore.
The Ford C-Max delivers far better gas mileage and has more interior space, but it lacks the available all-wheel-drive system.
The MINI Countryman is similar in size and function to the Encore, but it's undeniably more quirky, and skews toward the sportier end of the spectrum.
The BMW X1 costs more and is more rewarding to drive.
The VW Tiguan is larger with upscale interior materials and a peppier turbocharged four-cylinder.
The FIAT 500L feels cheaper inside and costs less, but offers marginally better performance than the Encore.
However, none of these are true competitors to this Buick's very niche set of qualities, at least for now.
