The 2012 Buick Verano is shaping up to be one of the safest bets among mid-size sedans, with top-notch crash-test ratings from the IIHS along with a very well-stocked list of safety features.
Federal crash-test ratings aren't yet out for the 2012 Verano at the time of posting, but GM expects to achieve top five-star results. The 2012 Verano has already earned Top Safety Pick status from the IIHS.
And equipment-wise, it's all here: ten standard airbags, electronic stability control, and anti-lock braking with brake assist, as well as OnStar Automatic Crash Response. Rear parking assist is available.
