It might be Buick’s smallest sedan, but the Verano offers high levels of comfort long associated with larger Buicks such as the Regal and LaCrosse. The Verano shares its architecture with the popular Chevrolet Cruze but distinguishes itself with higher levels of fit and finish, advanced safety features, and a softer ride.

What's New for 2014

Forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning join the Buick's impressive list of safety features. The Verano's tech system gets smarter with text message support and Siri Eyes Free, a voice-recognition system that works with Apple's iPhone. In addition, a new Smoky Gray Metallic exterior color debuts.

Choosing Your Buick Verano

The front-wheel drive Verano continues to attract more customers to the growing market for premium compact sedans with a stylish blend of technology, sophistication, craftsmanship and performance.

Base, Convenience and Leather models come with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. Hooked to a six-speed automatic transmission, it achieves 21 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.

The range-topping Premium boosts available horsepower to 250 with a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder engine. Buyers can choose between six-speed manual and automatic transmissions—either is available at no extra charge. Expect 20 mpg city and 31 mpg highway with the manual or 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway with the automatic.

The Verano seats up to five and is available in four models. Each trim level adds standard equipment to the trim level below it.

Base

Standard features for the Base aren't lavish, but include nice touches like dual-zone automatic climate control, a remote starter system, a satellite radio, a rearview camera and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Convenience

The Convenience adds driver assists like forward collision alert and lane departure warning, along with heated front seats with six-way power adjustment on the driver's side.

Leather

The Verano enters near-luxury territory with leather upholstery, push-button start, a Bose sound system and a heated steering wheel.

Premium

The main difference in the Premium is a turbocharged engine. Other extras include a rear spoiler, aluminum sport pedals and dual exhaust with chrome tips.

Standalone options include navigation and a sunroof.

CarsDirect Tip

According to reports, the Verano will be losing its manual transmission option for 2015. If you like to shift for yourself—and we do—we recommend the Premium with a six-speed manual transmission.
