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

With its standard features and packages of options, the Buick Verano claims a place in the premium niche, even though its base price would fit comfortably in the Chevy lineup.

Standard equipment on the Verano for 2014 includes power windows, locks, and mirrors; automatic climate control; remote start; cloth upholstery; an AM/FM/CD player with steering-wheel controls and a USB port; satellite radio; and a rearview camera.

Control over the infotainment features is handled by Buick's IntelliLink, which connects its LCD touchscreen and Bluetooth to the user's smartphone. When it's paired, the car's touchscreen, steering-wheel controls, and voice become the interface for media, hands-free calling, and navigation when it's so outfitted. IntelliLink has a cleaner, less confusing layout than some other systems, and it's configurable to a degree--you can place icons for apps like Pandora and Stitcher among those for AM, FM, and XM.

IntelliLink now hosts Apple's Siri EyesFree firmware, allowing drivers to tap its voice interface for live search. The navigation system has given us pause on occasion, mostly when searching for destinations, but it's relatively inexpensive.

The Verano can be fitted with option packages. The Convenience package bundles rear parking sensors with heated seats, heated side mirrors and an auto-dimming rearview mirrors; the leather package adds just that, plus a power driver seat, Bose premium audio, and pushbutton start. All said, options on the Verano can drive the bottom line toward, but just shy of, $30,000.

With a base price of about $30,000, the Verano Turbo has its own standard features, above and beyond those offered on the normally aspirated car. They include dual exhausts; sport pedals; a small trunklid spoiler; and the features from the Verano's leather and convenience packages, including Bose audio, and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel.

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.
