The Buick Envision is a midsize crossover with numerous convenience features and safety options. The exterior is smooth and trim, and the inviting interior gives you a sense of luxury and space. This crossover is designed with comfort, performance, and safety in mind.

The Buick Encore is a subcompact crossover, and what was once too small is now loved by many. The Encore provides both character and practicality, and its interior is more spacious that you might expect. This is a car that can compete with larger crossovers and smaller hatchbacks.

The Buick Encore is quite impressive, but can it compete with the larger Envision?
