Many people like crossovers because they have the high seating position and ground clearance you get from a larger SUV, while also being fuel-efficient and easy to maneuver in the city. The 2020 Buick Encore has all those benefits along with a comfortable, upscale interior that drivers in Sandusky, OH will enjoy for long road trips or entertaining guests. The Chevrolet Trax is also a subcompact SUV built by General Motors that's easy to navigate and park in tight spaces. However, here at Kasper Buick GMC, we think the Encore outdoes the Trax in many areas that are most important to people in Sandusky. Keep reading to see why.

Compare the 2020 Buick Encore with the 2020 Chevrolet Trax

  • The Encore Has a Nicer Interior: The Buick Encore and Chevy Trax have similar passenger and cargo dimensions, but the Encore has a finer cabin. It has high-quality materials and soft-touch surfaces throughout its interior, along with active noise cancellation for a quiet, relaxed ambiance. The Chevy Trax's interior is a mishmash of materials. There are some nice design touches, but you'll also find hard plastic surfaces and materials, and a fair amount of road and wind noise infiltrates its cabin.
  • The Encore Is More Reliable: Drivers in Sandusky want a crossover they can trust to start and run well every day. The 2020 Buick Encore has a perfect predicted reliability rating of five out of five from J.D. Power. The 2020 Chevrolet Trax, however, only earned a three-out of-five reliability score from J.D. Power.

  • The Encore Has Better Standard Features: Both the Trax and the Encore come standard with smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and Bluetooth. But the Encore has an 8-inch touch screen, while the Trax's screen is only 7 inches long. The Encore comes standard with a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, while the Trax only comes with a four-way manually adjustable driver's seat.
  • The Encore Has a Smoother Ride: The Buick Encore has a gentle ride, and its suspension soaks up most road flaws for compliant, comfortable cruising in Sandusky, OH. The Trax is easy to maneuver, but it suffers from a harsh ride quality over uneven pavement.
  • The Encore Has More Comfortable Seating: The Encore has generous head- and legroom in both rows of seats, and two average-sized adults can fit comfortably in the rear. Though the Trax's front seats are comfortable, they lack support, and space is tight in the cabin.
  • The Encore Has More Trim Levels and Available Features: The Encore is available in four trim levels, so people in Sandusky can have one with all the amenities they like. Optional features on higher Encore trims include a heated steering wheel and dual-zone automatic climate control. The Trax only comes in three models, and a heated steering wheel and dual-zone automatic climate control are not available in its higher trims.
