The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Buick Verano is a comfortable compact sedan that feels like a luxury car but isn't priced like one. With attractive designs and a light, efficient driving feel, the 2012 Acura TSX lineup strikes an ideal balance for a front-wheel-drive sport sedan or sport wagon.
