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.

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

Comfortable and quiet, with a phenomenally refined cabin at its price point or even above, the Buick Verano sets itself apart from other compact sedans, and even some bigger premium four-doors. The Verano simply filters the outside world in all the ways you'd expect from a luxury car.

Quiet Tuning is how Buick describes the refinement applied to make the Verano more than just a Cruze Plus. The application of sound deadening in and outside of the car--triple-sealed doors, laminated side glass, an acoustic windshield, and various foams, baffles, and mats--makes the Verano a very quiet vehicle, with good isolation from road, wind, and engine noise. Even if you're driving the Verano hard, on some of the coarsest surfaces, you'll be able to have a soft-spoken conversation.

In other respects, the Verano is clearly Cruze kin, but with more attention to detail. It starts with making the most of the compact dimensions, with well-shaped seats that feel plush and supportive. The cabin's spacious, thanks to front-wheel drive, and those front seats are excellent, with long-distance comfort for a wide range of drivers and lots of headroom and seat travel to accommodate tall drivers.

The Buick's rear bench seat is contoured for a pair of adults and a third short-stint passenger, too. It's a compact, so there's less legroom, and fitting five long-legged adults in the Verano at once will require some geometry skills.

There's ample small-item storage in the console and glove box. Trunk space is large and well-shaped, and rear seatbacks fold forward nearly flat, with a wide opening.


It's a compact, but the Buick Verano has a peaceful cabin, very comfortable seats, and agreeable interior room.

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.
