Overview

The 2017 Buick Verano is offered with a 180-horsepower, 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with direct injection. It powers the front-wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission and provides acceleration on par with most mid-size sedans. It is also quiet and refined, all while returning EPA ratings of 21 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.

The Verano has one of the quietest, most refined interiors in any sedan this size, thanks to Buick's Quiet Tuning philosophy, plus soft-touch materials and tight detailing throughout the interior. There's space for five in the Verano, but the rear bench seat is better contoured for two adults than for three across. Thanks to an acoustic windshield, triple-sealed doors, laminated side glass and other measures, the Verano's interior is luxury-quiet, with ride quality that is firm enough for good handling but compliant enough to soak up irregularities.

The Buick Verano is offered in three distinct trims. At the base level, the Verano includes a rich feature set that could fit into any true luxury-brand vehicle, with 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, ambient interior lighting, a 6-speaker audio system with USB port and iPod connectivity and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

The Sport Touring trim adds 18-inch alloys, front fog lamps, a rear lip spoiler, remote start, heated driver and front passenger seating with 8-way power-adjustability for the driver, a rear camera with park assist, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, satellite radio and Buick IntelliLink with a 7-inch color touchscreen.

The Verano Leather trim is optioned much like the Sport, with the addition of heated power mirrors, leather seating with heated front seats and 8-way power adjustability for the driver, a heated leather steering wheel and a 9-speaker Bose premium audio system with subwoofers.

With Bluetooth and USB connectivity, IntelliLink includes a 7-inch touch-screen for audio display, and it allows voice activation as well as steering-wheel-mounted controls of audio and hands-free calling functions. Users can also listen to Pandora and Stitcher Internet radio services using the smartphone's data connection. The available Bose audio system fully complements IntelliLink and XM Travel Link services and can provide access to gas stations, fuel prices, movie times and weather forecasts.

For Sport and Leather trims, The Driver Confidence Package adds forward collision alert and rear cross-traffic alert, as well as lane departure warning and side blind zone alert. Meanwhile, the Experience Buick Package brings navigation, a power moonroof, and the Bose 9-speaker audio system

All Verano models include OnStar safety, security and concierge services. Through a smartphone app, owners can have remote access to some OnStar functions. Otherwise the Verano includes a robust set of safety features, including ten standard airbags plus StabiliTrak stability control, four-wheel anti-lock brakes with Panic Brake Assist and a collapsible pedal system.

Buick introduces an all-new Regal sedanAll other models in the automaker's lineup receive minor updatesHistoryBuick is an American automaker that traces its roots back to 1899. In 1903, founder David Dunbar Buick incorporated his growing shop into the Buick Motor Company. The company released the Model B in 1904. That first car was a vehicle that would carry the automaker through the end of its first decade. By 1915, Buick had changed direction, and successfully moved upscale as a luxury brand. As market demands called for a different type of product near end of the century, the automaker introduced its first sport utility crossover, called the Rendezvous, in 2001. Today's lineup includes the Lacrosse, the all-new European-based Regal, and the 8-passenger Enclave sport utility.
