2016 Buick Verano OVERVIEW

The poster car for luxury on a budget, the Verano promises greater refinement and comfort than the rest of the compact class. The Verano succeeds well enough in its mission to be considered a credible alternative to entry-level sedans from prestige brands.

What's New for 2016

The Verano is now availble in price-leading 1SV trim.

Choosing Your Buick Verano

Most Verano models run with a 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The available turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder lays down 250 horsepower and comes with your choice of the six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission. Expect 25 mpg in combined driving with the base engine and 24 mpg from the turbo. You can be assured of luxuriously smooth, quiet running with any Verano.

This year's lineup consists of five Verano models:

1SV

Comes with all the basics, plus automatic dual-zone climate control, 17-inch aluminum wheels, a six-speaker display audio system, and a split-folding rear seat. There are no options for the 1SV, which is expected to make up a very small percentage of Verano sales.

Base

The "standard" Verano gets remote start, a rearview camera, Buick's IntelliLink infotainment system, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Convenience

Gets you heated front seats with driver power, heated mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, foglamps, and 18-inch wheels. Safety technology comes on strong with rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and forward collision alert. A sunroof and navigation system are optional starting at this trim level.

Leather

Tacks on a full leather interior, plus keyless ignition, a heated steering wheel, and a nine-speaker Bose sound system.

Premium Turbo

Like the Leather model, but the powerful turbocharged engine and a rear spoiler.

CarsDirect Tip

The 1SV, while undeniably affordable, is too austere for a modern-day Buick in our view. Most buyers will feel more comfortable with the popular Base model. However, if you're looking for a real luxury car (and not just a nice compact), the posh and speedy Premium Turbo is the way to go.
