Do the 2016 Buick Verano Safety Features Offer Enough Protection?
Safety is certainly one of the most important things to consider when you’re buying a new car, but it’s not necessary to make sacrifices in order to get access to the very best features in your next midsize sedan. Although the 2016 Buick Verano and the 2017 Acura ILX both come equipped with similar standard safety options, the engineers at Acura have managed to integrate all of these safety features without compromising the other aspects of this luxury vehicle. Only the 2017 ILX can offer you the complete luxury experience!
The engineers and designers at Buick would have you believe that today’s top safety features are only available in their vehicles, but this is far from the truth! In fact, both the Buick and the ILX received 5-star ratings from the NHTSA in Front Driver, Front Side, and Rear Side crash tests!*
All of the Buick’s best safety features are present and accounted for in the 2017 ILX! Whether you’re in the market for vehicle stability control, traction control, brake assistance, or daytime running lamps, you can find what you’re looking for in both the Verano and the ILX. Additionally, both of these midsize sedans come equipped with vehicle and radio theft-deterrent systems!
One of the ILX’s clear advantages in terms of safety is its Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. This feature allows the Acura to distribute the force of any collision in ways that will keep you and your family safer.
The Whole Package
The safety features available on the 2017 ILX are comparable to those on the 2016 Verano, but we think you’ll find that the ILX is a much better car overall! In the Acura, you’ll get top safety features alongside technology features like a power moonroof, push-start ignition, and LED headlights! On top of all this, the Acura ILX can generate up to 201 hp, while the Buick Verano tops out at just 180 hp.
Make the Smart Choice!
Top safety ratings and luxurious features aren’t mutually exclusive. Don’t waste time with the 2016 Buick Verano. If you want to be satisfied in your next midsize sedan, then we think you’ll find no better choice than the 2017 Acura ILX.
