The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Buick Verano may not be much of a sports sedan, but it certainly delivers in the category of comfort. The 2015 Chevrolet Cruze might now be one of the oldest designs in its class, but it remains one of the strongest entries -- especially for those focused on comfort, practicality, and fuel-efficiency.
