Do the 2015 Buick Verano Features Stand Up?

2016 ILX
Chicagoland drivers know there are plenty of different luxury car options available, but can the 2015 Buick Verano features compare with a real luxury sedan like the 2016 Acura ILX? While the Buick does have a warranty that bests many luxury vehicles, that only puts it on equal footing with the Acura, and once we look at the engines and features of these two cars, we think you’ll agree that the ILX comes out ahead.

How Do Buick’s Features Stack Up?

The easiest way to talk abut the 2015 Buick Verano features is actually to look at the long list of features you’ll find on the 2016 Acura ILX that aren’t on the Verano, including:

  • One-touch power moonroof
  • Power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • Heated front seating
  • Push-button ignition
  • Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters
  • Jewel Eye LED headlights

Some of these amenities, like the Jewel Eye LED headlights, are exclusive to Acura, but you also won’t find paddle shifters, a moonroof, or push-button start available for upgrade on the Verano either. And if you’re seeking more amenities, Acura has multiple package upgrades available.

Acura’s Engine

While the features might be enough for some drivers, the 2016 Acura ILX sports a more powerful and more efficient engine under the hood:

  • The 2015 Buick Verano has a 2.4L four-cylinder with 180 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque, earning 32 highway and 21 city mpg.
  • The 2016 Acura ILX has a 2.4L four-cylinder as well, but it is rated at 201 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, earning an EPA-estimated 36 highway and 25 city mpg.*

Whether you are looking for power, fuel economy, or features, the ILX comes out ahead of the Verano. We think it’s a sign that if you want a true luxury vehicle, you should go with a real luxury brand like Acura.
