Expert Quotes:

the heated steering wheel is a surprisingly nice extra touch
Popular Mechanics

A power passenger seat, however, is unavailable.

There are no rear-seat HVAC registers.
Car and Driver

Our cell phone paired easily and the Bluetooth system worked flawlessly in Buick's all new IntelliLink system.

if one upgrades to the full navigation system (which includes mapping rather than just the turn-by-turn directions OnStar provides), the ability to access Pandora and Stitcher is no longer available. Buick needs to integrate these two systems
Popular Mechanics

Even the $23,470 base model of the 2012 Buick Verano includes automatic climatecontrol, remote start, steering-wheel controls, an electronic parking brake, a USB port, Bluetooth.

Also included is Buick Intellilink—basically a touch-screen and voice-activated interface for media and hands-free calling. It's simpler than MyFord Touch but accomplishes most of the same tasks—including voice-activated Pandora and Stitcher streaming, through your smartphone's data connection.

A Convenience Group adds heated side mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and rear parking assist, while a Leather Group adds to that heated seats, a driver power seat, Bose surround sound audio, push-button keyless start, and premium leather upholstery.

All said, options on the Verano could drive the bottom line toward, but short of, $30k. Items of interest include a navigation system, a heated steering wheel, and a rear park assist feature.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
