The 2015 Acura ILX Specs Put it Ahead of the 2015 Buick Verano

February 17th, 2015 by

The 2015 Acura ILX is one of the best entries into the world of the luxury sedan, and if you’re a Chicagoland driver looking for a car that combines style and comfort with a fun-to-drive aesthetic and keeps the price affordable, this is the sedan for you. The specs of the 2015 ILX put it pretty far ahead of competing models like the 2015 Buick Verano; let’s take a look.

The ILX vs. the Verano

The first thing most drivers notice when switching from the Verano to the ILX is that Acura’s luxury sedan offers a more spacious front seat with more legroom and more shoulder room. The rear passengers have more shoulder room too, and those are just the first of many specs where the ILX outshines the Buick.

You’ll also find that the 2015 Acura ILX 5-Spd AT’s EPA-estimated 35 highway and 24 city mpg* put it ahead of the Verano’s 32 city and 21 highway mpg. And then there are the features. These are just a few amenities you’ll find on each ILX that are either unavailable or need an upgrade on the Verano:

  • Power moonroof
  • Speed-sensing wipers
  • Leather-trimmed seating
  • Power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • Heated front seating
  • Push-button ignition
  • Paddle shifters

Don’t get us wrong, Buick does have many of these features available, but they are trying to market a luxury vehicle to Chicago area drivers without even equipping it with leather upholstery or heated front seats. These are amenities that really need to come standard on luxury sedans.

For a more in-depth look at what separates the 2015 Buick Verano from the 2015 Acura ILX, we have a side-by-side comparison of the two vehicles. We think you’ll be amazed by just how much further ahead the Acura ILX is than its Buick competition.
