2016 Acura ILX blogWhether driving yourself or precious cargo around town, Orland Park drivers want to be as protected as possible. If you’re shopping around for your next vehicle, ask yourself if you trust the Buick Verano safety features, or if you would rather look beyond to the superior 2016 Acura ILX safety features instead. While every automobile advertises great safety, the IIHS puts those claims to the test, and only the ILX comes out with an IIHS 2016 Top Safety Pick + rating. In addition, the Acura is noted for several unique features that put it front and center in the quest to keep your drive as safe and secure as possible, no matter where you travel.

Awards and Ratings

The 2016 Buick Verano boasts admirable safety scores that include “Good” ratings in moderate overlap front, side, and roof strength assessments. Even with optional equipment, however, the Verano only manages to muster up a Basic front crash prevention rating. The good ratings are largely due to basic offerings like front and side airbags, a rollover sensor, and electronic stability control. By comparison, the ILX has a lot more to offer, including a full suite of crash prevention technologies and little extras like easy child seat anchor system use. Crash test ratings for the 2016 Acura ILX earn the highest ranking of “Good” in the following categories:

  • Small overlap front

  • Moderate overlap front

  • Side

  • Roof strength

  • Head restraints and seats

  • Front crash prevention (“Superior” rating with optional equipment)

Available Features

No automatic braking is available for the 2016 Buick Verano, though the vehicle does offer some protection in the form of optional forward collision warning. The 2016 ILX, by comparison, offers full points for a forward collision warning system, as well as both low and high-speed autobraking systems that performed extremely well during testing. In addition, the available AcuraWatch Plus system offers many high-tech accident prevention features that keep you out of the shop like lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and more.
