Analyzing Features: The 2014 Buick Verano or Acura ILX?

May 1st, 2014 by

2014-ilx-modelWisconsin Drivers, we know that you have a range of choices available when it comes to your sport sedans, even in the luxury class, and while a vehicle like the 2014 Buick Verano may have some nice features, we think it’s got a tough time standing up against the 2014 Acura ILX.

Let’s take a closer look at these two and figure out which one is the better choice for you.

Acura Tops on Features and More

When it comes to features, you would think that a luxury automaker like Buick would give you as much as it could as standard, and yet we have found quite a few features on the ILX that are simply lacking on the Verano, including:

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

That’s a pretty long list, but that’s not all…

If that’s not enough for you, the ILX brings more savings to the table than the Verano. Not only is the 2014 ILX 5-Spd AT more fuel efficient at an EPA-estimated 35 mpg on the highway* (compared to the Buick’s 32 highway mpg), but the ILX also has a better residual value. ALG rated the 2014 Acura ILX 5-Spd AT at 51% residual value at 36 months compared to the 47% of the Buick Verano.
