The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Comfortable, well-appointed and inexpensive on the luxury-car scale, the 2013 Buick Verano is a mild performer--that is, until the turbo T arrives later this year. For nearly all compact-sedan shoppers except serious enthusiasts or green-car fanatics, the 2013 Acura TSX strikes an agreeable compromise between sport-sedan attitude and premium-car practicality.
