2015 Acura ILX vs 2015 Buick Verano vs 2015 Audi A3

In the world of compact sedans, it's a crowded field. How do you know which one is right for you? Pohanka Acura shows how the 2015 Acura ILX compares to the 2015 Buick Verano and 2015 Audi A3.

When it comes to comfort and convenience, the 2015 Acura ILX has the advantage. Standard on the ILX but optional on the A3 is the multi-view rear camera1. This feature allows you to see not only what is directly behind you, but also any pedestrians or vehicles approaching from the sides and an overhead view that's great for parallel parking. You can also get in and go with the push start ignition on the ILX, something that's only optional on the A3 and unavailable on the Verano.

You'll be sitting comfortably in the ILX's leather-trimmed seats, which are unavailable on the Verano; you can keep yourself warm with heated front seats, standard on the ILX and only optional on the Verano. The same goes for the power driver seat, too. The added convenience of a power moonroof and speed sensing interval wipers also elude the the Buick Verano.

One of the best advantages that the ILX has over the Verano and A3 is fuel economy. The ILX has a 24 city/35 highway miles per gallon (MPG)2, versus the A3's 23 city/33 highway MPG2 and the Verano's 21 city/32 highway MPG2. The Verano is a low emissions vehicle, while the ILX is an improved ultra-low emissions vehicle, meaning it's better for the environment.

Thanks to the ILX's Sequential SportShift Automatic transmission, you can fly through the the gears with the steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters, which are not available on the Verano and an option on the A3.

The ILX also features a powertrain warranty of 72 months and 70,000 miles, giving you coverage for the engine, transmission and clutch, and the whole drive system. If your transmission goes out or a wheel bearing breaks, you're covered. With the A3, you're only covered for 48 months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first, so you can drive with confidence knowing you've got better coverage with the ILX.

When you stack the 2015 Acura ILX up against its competition, the 2015 Buick Verano and 2015 Audi A3, it's quite clear who comes out the winner. Visit Pohanka Acura in Chantilly, Virginia, to see our new vehicle showroom and the impressive 2015 Acura ILX.
