Between the Acura ILX vs. Buick Verano, which car will get your adrenaline pumping when you get behind the wheel? Let’s take a look under the hood. The Buick Verano packs a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that pumps out a respectable 180 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission for seamless shifting. The Acura ILX, on the other hand, roars with 201 hp and 180 lb-ft when you start up its 2.4L 4-cylinder. Acura also provides a smoother 8-speed dual-clutch transmission for a more elegant driving experience. When it comes to athleticism on the road, there’s just no question that the 2018 ILX offers the more exciting ride.


Since the Buick Verano is a little more subdued on the road, you may expect a bigger payoff in fuel economy. However, the Acura ILX manages to be both more powerful and more efficient with its impressive engineering. The ILX generates an EPA-estimated 35 mpg on the highway*, while the Verano falls short with just 31 mpg. Think of how much extra money you’ll save on every trip by picking the Acura ILX instead of the Buick Verano!


Given Acura’s commitment to design, it’s no surprise that the ILX offers a luxurious driving experience that the Buick Verano can’t quite match. For example, the Acura ILX has a power moonroof as a standard feature. Feel free to open it up with just a tap to enjoy the fresh air on a beautiful day. You can get a power moonroof for your Buick Verano, but you’ll have to shell out for a higher trim to get that option. Additionally, the Acura ILX makes a bold statement on the road with a set of Jewel Eye LED headlights. These headlights are efficient, elegant, and bright. The Buick Verano has the more conventional halogen composite projector beams, which offer neither the vibrancy nor the clarity of their LED counterparts.
