Buick Encore vs. Chevy Trax


For city driving, subcompact SUVs are an excellent choice. With space for passengers and cargo in a size that’s manageable for driving in Astoria, and an affordable price, the Buick Encore is a great fit. How does the Buick Encore compare to the Chevy Trax? Empire Buick GMC Of Long Island City takes a look at some key features for city drivers: cargo and security.

Cargo Capacity – Trax or Encore

Cargo capacity in the Buick Encore and Chevy Trax is the same, with 48.4 cubic feet overall, and only one-tenth of a cubic foot difference in the cargo space behind the second-row seats: the Encore has 18.8 cubic feet compared to the Trax’s 18.7 cubic feet. Both are great options for making those warehouse store runs to restock your business in Long Island City. The lower trim levels of the Buick Encore includes handy storage under the front passenger seat, perfect for stashing valuables out of sight. The Chevy Trax includes this feature on its upper trim levels. There’s plenty of room for five passengers in both the Encore and Trax, with virtually the same dimensions for headroom, legroom, hip room, and shoulder room.

Safety Perks – Encore or Trax

Keeping your SUV, your cargo, and yourself safe are a high priority in Brooklyn. The Buick Encore and Chevy Trax have similar driving safety features, but the Encore surpasses the Trax in two small but important areas. Deep-tinted glass makes it difficult for people to see the cargo in your SUV, and less appealing to thieves. The Buick Encore includes deep-tinted glass on all trim packages. The Chevy Trax only includes it on their upper trim levels. Keyless entry allows you to enter your car quickly and safely without having to fumble with your keys, which is especially difficult after dark. Like the deep-tinted windows, the Buick Encore features keyless entry on all trims, but it’s only available on higher trim levels of the Chevy Trax.
