Compare 2016 Buick Verano Features to an Acura

April 19th, 2016 by

2016 Acura ILXWe know that many Chicagoland drivers look at the 2016 Buick Verano features and see them as a step up from the average sedan—and they are—but they are more like a bridge between the standard sedan and a luxury car like the 2016 Acura ILX. When put up against true luxury sedans, the Verano’s features buckle under the pressure; see for yourself.

Comparing the Features of the Verano and ILX

Acura has engineered the 2016 ILX to be an entry into the luxury sedan world, giving drivers access to class and high-tech features at an affordable price. Acura doesn’t skimp on the amenities, and it’s one of the biggest differences between the ILX and the Verano.

You’ll find each of these features on the base-level ILX, but they either are unavailable or require upgrades to the Verano:

  • Power moonroof
  • Voice controls for tech features
  • Multi-angle rearview camera system
  • Power-adjustable and heated front seating
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Jewel Eye LED headlights
  • Push-button ignition
  • Steering wheel–mounted paddle shifters

It’s clear that the cabin and exterior features give the 2016 Acura ILX an advantage over the Verano, but its long list of features is far from the only strength of the Acura sedan. The advanced cabin of the ILX is joined by an advanced engine as well:

  • The 2016 Acura ILX has a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine under the hood, rated at 201 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque.
  • The 2016 Buick Verano has a 2.4L 4-cylinder as well, but it’s only capable of 180 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque.

Those specs will be noticeable whenever you need to make up for lost time on the morning commute.
