Buick Verano Overview

The Verano is based on the Chevrolet Cruze, but with more sound insulation and upscale trimmings. Power comes from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, but its 24 mpg overall fuel economy is unimpressive for the class. A 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder makes the car quick. The Verano is very quiet but some engine noise is evident. It rides relatively comfortably and handling is responsive but not that sporty. The interior is nicely finished, but cramped in the rear. Features such as a heated steering wheel are nice, but the lack of power recline and adjustable lumbar support for the driver's seat is chintzy. Reliability has improved to above average.
