There aren't many direct competitors for the Buick Encore.
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 Mazda CX-3 is also sportier, though it's tight on interior space.
The FIAT 500X offers a good balance of space and dynamics.
Honda's new HR-V isn't exciting, but it offers excellent interior space for its small size.
We'd throw in the more expensive Audi Q3, a sleeker, better-handling option with superior acceleration--or possibly the upcoming BMW X1, a new model based on the front-wheel-drive MINI Countryman.
