2017 Acura ILX vs 2017 Buick Regal near Arlington, VA

If you’ve been debating the pros and cons of different luxury sport sedans, allow Pohanka Acura to help with this 2017 Acura ILX vs 2017 Buick Regal near Arlington, VA, comparison. We’ll show you how the features stack up with these two competitors and can answer any other questions you may have via phone at 703-592-4453. Keep reading to see how the ILX raises the bar!

From weekday commutes to weekend joyrides, you deserve exceptional performance from your new vehicle purchase. The ILX delivers with a commendable 2.4L 4-cylinder standard engine that pushes out 201-hp and 180 lb.-ft. of torque. It gets even better with the 8-speed dual-clutch transmission that allows you to control your performance on I-66. The Regal puts out a solid effort, but its standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine just can’t compete with only 182-hp and 172 lb.-ft. of torque. Plus, you’ll only have a 6-speed automatic transmission with this powertrain. If you are tired of making constant stops at the gas station, the ILX takes another win with its thrifty 25/35 MPG city/hwy1. You’ll have to plan a few extra pit stops in the Regal, since the best it can achieve is an estimated 19/30 MPG city/hwy2.

For a vehicle that stands out in a crowd, the ILX has proven itself to be both unique and sophisticated. This section of the 2017 Acura ILX vs 2017 Buick Regal near Arlington, VA, comparison, takes a look at the exterior. Greatly unchanged from previous iterations, the Regal has a slightly dated feel with its rounded silhouette and basic wheel designs. Plus, you’ll have to add an extra package or opt for higher trim levels in order to have LED headlamps or a power moonroof. With the ILX, however, you’ll be firmly in the modern age with its sleek curves and angular lines. Standard Jewel Eye® LED headlights are better than ever with multiple different bulbs and precise illumination. You’ll also get a power moonroof with tilt feature on every version of the ILX.

The cabin of the ILX is equally worthy of note with an available 10-speaker premium audio system, GPS-linked solar-sensing climate control3, and perforated Lux Suede® upholstery. This is one cabin that is ready to welcome you and impress your passengers. The Regal doesn’t have quite the same wow factor with a 7-speaker audio system, plain dual-zone climate control, and basic leather upholstery as the top optional features.      

Now that you’ve gotten a glimpse of how wonderful the ILX is, come to Pohanka Acura and take it for a test drive! We would be happy to pick up where this comparison of the 2017 Acura ILX vs 2017 Buick Regal near Arlington, VA, left off. Our showroom is open seven days a week for your convenience.

Went to Pohanka Acura because we had heard great things about them from friends who had purchased there before. The dealership was very clean and had many vehicles to look at and choose from. We worked with Joseph Rinchuso on an MDX. Joseph was very knowledgeable and friendly, but most of all, he was not pushy or obnoxious like many auto salesmen can be. He was a pleasure to work with, and we will definitely be looking for him again in the future for our next purchase.

A few months ago, My 17yo daughter's car was totalled at no fault of her own. She was not hurt physically but I know she was sad about no longer having her vehicle which she had livingly named Evangeline! I had been fortunate enough to purchase that vehicle, a Honda Accord coupe, with cash from my neighbor. That was a true blessing for us. I am a single parent of two lovely daughters. The eldest is in college. I have been reluctant to purchase a new vehicle from a dealership because of several reasons. The two main reasons are that I didn't feel I would get an affordable vehicle that was nice and safe enough for me to feel comfortable for my daughter and secondly in all of my car buying experience, (and I have purchased severa!) I have been shafted no matter how prepared I believe myself to be. Well not today folks! Jason Smith and his team treated me with the upmost respect, kindness, care and concern for my needs! They were honest and up front with exactly what I was getting! And boy did I get an awesome deal! I got way beyond good, and way above what I thought I could have on my budget! Heck Jason was so nice, knowing I was tired from coming off of a 12hr overnight shift, he didn't even throw a fit when I continually called him Justin! Lol I would definitely tell anyone needing a great deal on a vehicle purchase with no nonsense and great service, to run, not walk over to Pohanka Acura! This has been the best vehicle purchasing experience I have ever had! I that my God for leading me to Jason Smith aka Justin (haha) and the Pohanka Acura team! BTW,. My daughter is super excited and happy with her new car! She's already named it Lue-Lue! And yes, I probably did spell the name wrong! Whatever! Lol

Erkin, provided amazing assistance and guidance during my recent service. It's refreshing to know that a dealership is focused on quality and customer satisfaction versus billing for service. I must admit that, I was touch by the professionalism, communication and honesty. Erkin, has renewed my faith in Customer Service. He is truly an asset in this industry. I probably would of consider purchasing a different brand. My loyalty to the Acura brand, is directly related to the outstanding treatment, I received from Mr Erkin! Well done Sir! 5 Stars!!!

Car shopping for 24 hours in 2 days ended 100 miles away from home at Pohanka Acura! We looked at several dealerships of many makes and models (I am not picky... price and reliability are more important than most gadgets). Leandro Rodriquez was awesome (he even laughed at my bad jokes, but did not let me test the collision avoidance system :) ) and worked very well with us to get us what we needed. We got a great price... but what got us was the willingness to work with us. Thank you Leandro for your help, who knows, we may make the trip to NOVA when we replace our Camry! Update - found a possible issue in the paperwork that may change the review. I have contacted the dealership and am awaiting a response. If resolved, it will go to 5 stars, if not... The question is on the finance side, not the sales side (sales was awesome) and is in regard to a discount that may not have been applied to purchased packages.

I bought a new RDX at Pohanka today. Jason Smith handled everything with a professional approach I really appreciated. We looked at several cars and he explained all the variations. I made the decision to go with the RDX with the Tech package, and Jason made everything happen. After the sale he took as much time as necessary to educate me on all the controls and features of the car. It will take me a bit to absorb it all, but he told me to call him or even come back for any needed further explanations. I recommend him highly.

I recently purchased Acura TLX certified from pohanka and It was a good experience overall for me. They have lot of good cars in their lot and I would say they are priced fairly when compared to others in market and for this reason I had traveled all the way from Massachusetts to VA (7+hr drive) for purchasing this car. Farheen from sales team was assisting me in this entire process. She has been very professional and responsive in getting answers to all my questions. This way even though I was living very far from the dealer company she made sure there were no communication gaps and completed the deal efficiently.

I worked with Joseph Rinchuso to process my deal and documentation and his exceptional knowledge on the vehicles helped me to steer towards a quality decision of my make and model. Joseph, besides being patient in answering my questions and concerns, also offered me discounts on my service and other miscellaneous services. Overall satisfaction was exceptional.

I’ve felt with many car dealerships in the past but here at Pohanka Acura was the most pleasant and knowledgeable experience I have ever had. Our sales person Leondro was a great help and knew everything about the car from the former owner to some imperfections of a used 2016 mdx. They took care of our needs and I actually enjoyed it. Ask for Leondro. It’s worth it.

I was impressed with the fact their first offer was strong which made me have a realistic idea of what it could take to make the deal happen.

Pros: Clean and attractive showroom, wide selection of vehicles, employees who know what they're doing. The financial processor I worked with was particularly efficient. Cons: Purchasing process takes too long, if buying a used car, staff may not know the car's features if it isn't an Acura. Overall: I was pleased with my experience at Pohanka and with my salesperson, Jason Smith. I got the car I wanted at a good price. However, it should not take 3.5 hours to complete this transaction, I wish I had sold my own vehicle privately beforehand, and it would have been nice to get a walk-through of my new vehicle to point out all its features and explain how to set up the electronics. Advice: Know how much you're willing to pay, bring print-outs of online estimates from KBB.com and Cars.com of what your car is worth as well as current listing for similar vehicles, don't expect them to be familiar with a non-Acura vehicle, and bring a good book to read because you might be there for a long time.
