2012 Buick Verano Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy

The 2012 Verano is about the same size and weight as the Chevrolet Cruze sedan. Yet while much of the Cruze lineup makes do just fine, GM decided to install a larger 2.4-liter four in the Verano. That gives the Verano a smoother, more confident character than it would likely have with the Cruze's 1.4-liter turbo engine, but its gas mileage isn't nearly as good.

At an EPA-rated 21 mpg city, 31 highway, the Verano's gas mileage is, however, better than nearly all luxury-brand sedans its size (except for hybrids like the Lexus HS 250h and Lincoln MKZ Hybrid).

Gas mileage of the 2012 Verano is about middle-of-the-road for this size of sedan.
