Quiet, refined interior; responsive powertrains; crisp handling yet smooth ride; well-orchestrated connectivity and navigation features; very strong value for the money
The 2013 Buick Verano is at the leading edge of a new kind of sedan--one that's compact, yet refined, comfort-oriented and luxurious, yet at a price that's a bit lower than traditional luxury brands. At the same time, the new Verano Turbo can accelerate to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds and the available manual gearbox gives it credibility as a sport sedan. The Verano also stands out from other upscale compact sedans--through Buick's Quiet Tuning approach, which emphasizes isolation, smoothness and quiet for the cabin--and for its feature set, which is remarkably complete for a sedan in this price range and including some impressive connectivity and safety technology.
