Buick compares the new Buick Verano to the Lexus IS 250 and Audi A3, and you’ll get no dubious looks from us. When you consider the Verano costs thousands less, it looks even better. There’s a healthy warranty of 4 years and 50,000 miles.
The Verano is a great looking car, with sleek stocky lines. Beautiful in black (Black Onyx), maybe better in chocolate (Mocha Bronze Metallic). It totally pulls off the wedge look, with a short nose, steeply raked windshield, and good character lines. It will be an impressive car to drive around. That’s what Buicks have always been, and what they’re supposed to be. What’s especially impressive about Verano is that it’s a compact car. It’s six inches longer than the Mazda3, and three inches longer than the Lexus IS 250.
The interior is classy, with a rugged cloth upholstery in the base model and excellent leather especially in a rich brown. Interior shapes are smooth and the trim elegant, especially in satin bronze with brown leather. The center stack is powerful and graceful, bucket seats exceptional, and gauges beautiful.
Verano Leather upgrades to leather upholstery, heated leatherette steering wheel, pushbutton start, Bose sound system, and IntelliLink, which integrates portable devices with a smart phone.
