The Verano better equipped and more affordable than just about anything else in it's segment, leaving it without any true competitor so far.
The Acura ILX may be the next closest thing, but it's not as comfortable as the base Verano, and it's nowhere near as quick as the Turbo.
The Lexus IS offers better driving dynamics than ever before, making it more of a sport sedan than ultra-soft luxury car.
The Audi A3 is new this year and drives well, but offers fewer options for the same money.
That leaves the Mercedes-Benz CLA as the Verano's closest competitor.
It's a little firmer on the road than the Verano, but its extra-stylish looks and unmatched cachet might make it worth the extra coin.
