2013 Buick Verano T
And finally, two new colors are added: Luxo Blue Metallic and Carbon Black Metallic.
The Verano's a quiet, well-executed piece, but it's been a difficult car to peg in traditional segments. It's a more luxury-minded choice than other compacts, and one of the most fully developed and best-priced options in a class of also-rans that counts the new Acura ILX and the more pleasing TSX; the outgoing Volvo S40; the pricey Audi A3; and non-premium-brand sedans like the Honda Civic and Volkswagen Jetta.
The 2013 Verano T goes on sale in late 2012, with pricing yet to be announced.
Full disclosure: We've driven prototypes of the new 2013 Buick Verano T, but the prototypes are still in the final phases of engineering and approval. So while we've driven the car in this form, we've been asked to hold driving impressions until later this year when production cars are available. Stay tuned for seat time with us in the Verano T this fall--and until then, for more information on the current four-door, see our full review of the 2012 Buick Verano.
