Expert Quotes:

On all types of roads the Verano ranks among the quietest mass-market cars you can buy.
Motor Trend

The cabin is indeed quiet, thanks to an abundance of sound-absorbing materials throughout the car, thicker glass than what's in the Cruze, and triple-sealed doors.
Automobile Magazine

Its doors shut with a suitable thunk, and amid city gridlock and elevated trains, the insulation impresses.
Cars.com

The leather seats were comfortable, with what seemed like aggressive lumbar support (welcome news to anyone with an aching back).
Edmunds


What does distinguish the 2012 Verano from less-expensive compact sedans, along with many premium-brand models, is its phenomenally refined, comfortable, quiet interior.

Quiet Tuning is a keyword at Buick, and it describes much of the Verano's personality. Through meticulous sound-deadening measures like triple-sealed doors, laminated side glass, an acoustic windshield, and various foams, baffles, and mats, the Verano is very, very quiet inside. Buick has worked to isolate road, wind, and engine noise, so even if you're driving the Verano hard, on some of the coarsest surfaces, you'll be able to have a soft-spoken conversation.

Interior appointments are also worthy of being compared to those of any luxury car this size. And thanks to its front-wheel-drive layout, the Verano has a very spacious interior. Front seats are superb, with all-day support for a wide range of drivers, along with plenty of seat travel and headroom for the tallest drivers. Rear seats are well contoured for adults, too; the only thing that calls the Verano out as a compact is the need to compromise legroom between front and rear if there are several lanky occupants riding at once.

Trunk space is large and well-shaped, and rear seatbacks fold forward nearly flat, with a wide opening.

Conclusion

The 2012 Buick Verano is roomier inside than its exterior suggests--and a standout for those who want peace and quiet.

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.
