2012 Buick Verano Two Minute Review: Video

March 21, 2012

Automakers think the luxury compact-car segment is about to grow with aging baby boomers and young professionals. Buick wants to be at the forefront of this new segment and has launched the new Verano.

While based on the same platform as the Chevrolet Cruze, the Buick Verano is truly a completely different car. With unique sheetmetal and a completely different interior, you'd be hard pressed to know they are related.

Inside, our Verano featured nice brown leather and some of the most comfortable seats General Motors makes. Buick's new IntelliLink infotainment system is easy to use and pairs with a smartphone with a few simple steps. Unexpected luxuries such as a heated steering wheel are available.

The Verano seats five, though it is more comfortable for four. It features ten standard airbags and electronic stability control.

The bottom line is the Buick Verano is a comfortable compact sedan that feels like a luxury car, but isn't priced like one.
