The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
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. Forget that the 2012 Infiniti G Sedans are somewhat practical four-door designs; they can provide all the sensory thrills and dynamic satisfaction of full-fledged sports cars.
