The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Mild or slightly spicy--in either flavor, the 2014 Buick Verano delivers long on comfort, without bowing to sport-sedan cliches. The 2014 Lexus IS is an important car for the brand, and at first impression, the redesign is off to a good start.
