2013 Verano - very nice luxury compact!
By lrinnc on
2013 Buick Verano 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
I've had many small to medium sedans, but this time I wanted a domestic near-luxury compact instead of expensive foreign makes or the usual mid-sized choices. The Verano fit the bill perfectly. Tasteful two-tone interior, understated exterior styling, and perfect size for an empty-nester or young professional. The base motor is only average in terms of power and MPG, but the overall goodness of the car for the price is undeniable. The well-equipped base model seems to be the best value, if you can do without the Convenience or Leather packages.
Very composed ride for a compact sedan, near-luxury vibe, excellent value if not too overloaded with options. Comfortable leatherette/cloth front seats, stylish gauges and dash, amazingly roomy trunk, and acceptable back seat.
Better front seat adjustment, should include outside trunk release and heated seats as standard. Verano is so quiet (little wind or engine noise) that on some stretches of highway, the standard Continentals whine too much. Should have quieter Pirelli's to maintain the unique quietness of the car.
