2017 Acura ILX vs 2017 Buick Verano near Woodbridge, VA

2017 ILX Interior

If you’re in the market for a new compact sedan, it can be hard trying to find the one best-suited for you. To help narrow down your options, we at Pohanka Acura created a comparison between two of the top vehicles in the class: the 2017 Acura ILX vs 2017 Buick Verano near Woodbridge, VA. In more ways than one, experience how the ILX prevails against the Verano!

Underneath the hoods of these vehicles await an immense amount of power, especially for compact sedans. Although, only one can come out on top, and that is the ILX. The 2.4L 4-cylinder powertrain comes standard in the 2017 ILX, and renders an enthralling 201 horsepower and 180 lb.-ft. of torque. If you’re behind the wheel of the Verano, you’ll only have 180 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque streaming from the standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. Along with its power, the ILX even pulls ahead in terms of efficiency, too, with 35 MPG hwy1 to its name. The Verano, however, only achieves 31 MPG hwy2.

When it comes to comfort, the Buick Verano struggles to keep up with the ILX. For the winter months, the Acura ILX comes standard with heated front seats, which help keep the chill at bay. The Verano, on the other hand, only offers heated front seats in its top two trims, not in all like the ILX. Although dual-zone automatic climate control does come standard in both compact sedans, we see that the ILX offers an additional amenity that the Verano doesn’t in this battle of the 2017 Acura ILX vs 2017 Buick Verano in Chantilly, VA: available GPS-linked Solar-sensing Climate Control Enhancement3. This system tracks the sun’s position relative to the car, while solar sensors measure its intensity and adjusts the system output for optimal temperatures.

Continuing on in this matchup, the area of technology will be discussed. Although both come equipped with a fine array of amenities, once again, the ILX maintains its lead. In every trim level, the Acura ILX comes standard with Bluetooth®4 HandsFreeLink® and audio streaming, while Bluetooth®5 is only offered in top trims of the Verano. Access to its Rear Vision Camera6 in the Verano is only available in two out of the three trims. To cater to all, the ILX equips its Multi-Rear Vision Camera7 in all of its models.

In just a few paragraphs, this comparison of the 2017 Acura ILX vs 2017 Buick Verano near Woodbridge, VA, shows the various ways in which the ILX is the better equipped compact sedan. To see what else the ILX has to offer, come on down to Pohanka Acura today!
