2013 Buick Verano Leather Group 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

The Buick Verano is one of GM’s more affordable luxury cars with a base price of $20,000. This Buick attracts a lot of younger people that want luxury car features at an affordable price. The Verano is a sporty car, but also a great family vehicle. The upgraded package can includes leather heated seats, a 9 speaker Bose audio system, heated steering wheel, electric seats, rear backup camera and a push to start ignition. While the basic package is well-received, the upgrades are worth the extra money. These upgrades can bring the price to over $25,000.
The 2013 Buick Verano comes with two different engine sizes. The base engine is a 4 cylinder 2.4 L able to produce 180 horsepower at 6,700 RPM’s. For a sportier feel the upgraded engine is a 4 cylinder 2.0 L with a turbo for and extra boost of 250 horsepower at 5,300 RPM’s. With a base engine, I noticed that you barley have to hit the gas for the engine to get up in speed. The Verano only comes with a 6 speed automatic transmission that shifts very smoothly through gears. Even know you might think the smaller the engine the better gas mileage, this isn’t true. Buick has put an eco-friendly engine in the Verano. Both models come with a fuel tank capacity size of 15.6 gallons. The fuel economy is rated at 21 miles per gallon in the city and 30 to 32 miles per gallon on the highway. I drive 30 miles round trip 6 days out of the week and have noticed excellent gas mileage.
Safety and security features are another great aspect of this car. The Buick Verano includes a driver and passenger airbags. There are also rear side-impact airbags and overhead airbags, for a total of 10, that make passengers feel safe in case of an accident or if the car was to roll over. Other people may wonder if the Verano is secure in weather related conditions. I would say yes, because it is equipped with traction control, ABS brakes and break assist. The Verano is front wheel drive which helps in snow because the weight of the engine is in the front pushing the tires down to grip the surface. In a crash test, the Verano tested 5 out of 5 stars for its excellent safety features. The car also comes with security features such as a panic alarm, 4 door locks and immobilizer which will prevent the wrong key from going in the ignition to keep thieves away from stealing the vehicle.
Safety, security and high tech features are why I would suggest a Buick Verano to anyone that is looking for a reliable car to get them to point A and B and back. The only con I had with this car is its limited backseat room which is not that big of a problem. Overall I would rate the 2013 Buick Verano an 8 out of 10 stars.

2013 Buick Verano 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I have had the Verano for two years now, and have put approximately 30,000 miles. Never had a single issue. The MPG is as it is stated in the sticker, get 32 mpg on highway 70 mph. The exterior design is elegant, quality is excellent. The seats are very comfortable, and you can't find a quieter car in this size. If your do a lot of highway driving, and gas & comfort is essential, you can't go wrong with this car.


Best Features

Quiet, comfortable, good quality


Worst Features

I don't spend anytime in the backseat, but I heard they are not comfortable. The city MPG could be better.

2013 Buick Verano Premium Group 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Never thought I would own a Buick but after test driving midsize after midsize and finding significant issues with each one, I decided to try this car after reading the positive reviews.
After 5 minutes in the turbo, I knew this was going to be the one.
All of the bells and whistles on a turbo sedan for less than $30K out the door is just a phenomenal deal.
You really have to try hard to find even minor issues on this car.
Limited rear leg room is not an issue for me.


Best Features

Turbo engine Premium Stereo Voice command controls everything Rear Cross Traffic Alert System is awesome Premium black paint is beautiful Seats are very comfortable (I am 6'4") Ride is comfortable and ridiculously quiet. Did I mention that this thing is fast, fast, fast


Worst Features

- Make the seat fully powered. Currently the recline function is manual. - Passenger seat is not powered at all (Buick really cheaped out on that) - Trunk needs to be a little larger

2013 Buick Verano Leather Group 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

We purchase a new Verano with the Leather Group package and some additional options.
It has ALL the bells and whistles except the turbo (which I didn't want).
The base engine has more than sufficient power, the six speed transmission shifts super smoothly, the handling is outstanding, and this is the quietest car we have ever riden in!
The Bose music system is incredible!
The rear seat handles our 6' 2" grandson perfectly with plenty of leg and head room. On our last 200 mile trip through the Sierras and Feather River Canyon we got an incredible 34.5 mpg!
After months of research and test driving MANY cars, we made the right choice!
And it's a looker too!

2013 Buick Verano 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

We already have an Enclave, which we like, so when my wife's old Cavalier was damaged in a crash we didn't hesitate to go for the Verano. And what a mistake that was. Like the Enclave the Verano is a heavy auto for its size that guzzles fuel and unlike the Enclave, it doesn't make up for it in other ways. The dashboard knobs feel cheap and require more effort to press than the Enclave. The green-white information screen looks like a two-tone video game from the 1980s. The engine sounds like a lawnmower. I test drove the version with the more powerful engine and didn't notice much difference. The view from the back isn't great. I must say this vehicle is a real disappointment.


Best Features

The seats aren't that bad and the sound system is excellent. There is room for lots of luggage. A tall person can sit in the back without too much discomfort. The doors shut with a satisfying thud.


Worst Features

Improve the fuel economy, perhaps by cutting the weight of the car. Make the dashboard display more up to date and less basic. Remove the raft of ugly soft knobs on the dashboard and make them easier to press. Right now you have to exert quite some force.
