2016 Honda HRV vs 2016 Buick Encore
The subcompact crossover segment is quickly becoming one of the most popular classifications on the market. Everyone likes the conveniences afforded by a crossover utility vehicle, but not everyone wants to give up the conveniences of a small sedan or coupe. The subcompact crossover is the perfect segue between the two, and perfect for anyone who fits this description. Two of the most popular vehicles in the class are available right here at Drive Wheaton, and we took a look at them side by side by comparing the 2016 Honda HRV vs 2016 Buick Encore.
Differences between the 2016 Honda HRV, Buick Encore
The similarities between the two vehicles are impeccable, and although the HRV comes out on top in many of the specs it isn’t by enough to make it an obvious choice. Not to mention the fact that the Buick Encore is made by a luxury manufacturer, with plenty of premium features and design cues both standard and available. But let’s take a look at the table above to check out the differences between the two vehicles.
Both the Encore and HRV achieve 9.4 l/100km fuel economy through city streets, but the HRV gets a 0.2 l/100km nod on the highway. Similarly, the HRV has an extra 3 horsepower than the encore. But as we mentioned neither of these advantages are exactly substantial enough to warrant a decision for one over the other. If an abundance of cargo capacity is important to you however, then the HRV may be the right choice as it offers an extra 5.5 cu. ft. of space in its cargo area.
