2016 Buick Encore vs 2016 Hyundai Tucson
AwardsWhy did KBB.com name the 2016 Buick Encore the Best Luxury Compact SUV/Crossover in its 5-Year Cost to Own Awards for the third year in a row? Because it "continues to prove you don't have to spend a fortune to get into a premium crossover" and because "no matter which Encore you choose, you'll get a premium compact SUV that's quiet, easy to drive and fits just about anywhere." We couldn't agree more1.
The Buick has made safety a top priority, and it shows: the 2016 Encore has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick and it's earned a coveted 5-star Overall rating from the NHTSA2.
EfficiencyWho says you can't have both luxury and eco-friendly fuel efficiency? The 2016 Buick Encore3 offers more miles per gallon both in the city and on the highway than the 2016 Hyundai Tucson4 - 2 more and 1 more MPGs, respectively - meaning you'll use less fuel and emit fewer greenhouse gases, while still enjoying the luxury and performance you've come to expect from Buick. Bravo!

FeaturesGet the convenience of 4G LTE connectivity anytime, anywhere, standard on the 2016 Buick Encore5, and not even an option on the 2016 Hyundai Tucson.
A heated steering wheel may seem like an over-the-top luxury… until your first chilly commute without one. Then you’ll be glad your 2016 Buick Encore6 is equipped with it, standard.
No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2016 Buick Encore7, can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2016 Hyundai Tucson8, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.

SafetyIf your vehicle begins to drift out of its lane, the Lane Departure Warning System, standard on the 2016 Buick Encore7, will sound an alarm. This extra layer of safety isn't standard on the 2016 Hyundai Tucson8, so if you want it, you'll have to pay extra.
The 2016 Buick Encore5 offers side airbag protection to its rear passengers standard, but that same level of safety isn't even an option on the 2016 Hyundai Tucson.
