Even though year 2012 is already in its second half it is still not the time to say that models of 2013 are already so much expected and anticipated. However, we can provide you some of the great and incredible fights even now. One of this will be the fight between Buick 2013 the LaCrosse model and the 2013 Acura ILX vehicle, both exclusive and both fairly famous in the category of the up-scale sedans. So let’s see what they can offer us.

Both cars start from relatively high price of $28,200, however at some dealers you can pay for Buick up to $3,000 more. This is quite expected if we look what these two cars have under the hood. So the Buick LaCrosse got itself the 2.4L 197hp I4, which is quite enough for the class and also for the name it actually has. Though from Acura’s side it was a total disappointment to see that it only has the 1.5L 111hp I4. The ratio of about two times less of horsepower is not impressing at all. Though in the number of valves Acura get’s itself only two, while Buick has 4, so now we kind of see why it is the way it is. However, quite impressive feature of Acura is its fuel economy ratings. It is almost impossible to believe, but Acura runs for 39 mpg in the city and about 38 on the highway. While Buick has 25 mpg in the city and around 36 on the highway. So we see that even though on the highway the numbers are quite similar, the city ratios are fairly disperse.

So what can we say… Even though Acura was fighting really hard, more horsepower is more horsepower, so Buick appears to win!
