2018 Toyota C-HR vs 2017 Buick Encore
We’re extremely excited for the upcoming model year. Not only is the Toyota Camry entering a new generation, but Toyota will be introducing a brand-new vehicle to the market as it ventures into the fastest-growing segment in the industry right now: the subcompact crossover class. With the little bit of early information we already have, we thought we’d see how the new model is going to measure up against one of the segment’s pioneers, by comparing the 2018 Toyota C-HR vs 2017 Buick Encore.
Advantages of the 2018 Toyota C-HR
As we said, we only have a little bit of specific information about the brand-new 2018 Toyota C-HR at this point. So the table up above looks at four different specs and features that we do have info on, and while it’s not the four we usually look at with these comparisons they’re all still pretty important. For instance, the first row depicts the engine size.
The C-HR offers a larger engine, which generally means it should offer more power (which we can see is true in this case by looking ahead to the second row), but unfortunately it could also mean the Encore is more efficient than the C-HR. But we won’t know for sure until fuel economy ratings come out later this year. As we mentioned already, the second row shows that the basic C-HR will offer more power than the basic Encore, in the form of 6 horsepower. 6 HP isn’t a huge advantage though, especially when you see that the third row shows the Encore offers an extra 9 pound-feet of torque.
The last row is probably the least important of the four rows as we looked at wheel size. The Encore does offer larger wheels, so if you like the look of bigger wheels than the Encore might be for you. But smaller tires usually mean enhanced efficiency and performance, so it’s up to you!
