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. The 2013 Volvo C30 still has a stunning design, inside and out, but its performance and practicality can easily be beat.
