If you are looking for a compact and agile new car that is packed with luxury features at an affordable price, turn to the 2017 Buick Verano. The new Verano is a rare breed in the small car segment, as it offers luxurious features and a level of refinement that is on-par with mid-size or full-size sedans. Car buyers who want to drive a compact, entry-level luxury car will find the new Verano fits their needs and budget!
Producing 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque, the 2017 Verano base model's 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine provides capable power and high fuel economy marks. The 2.4-liter equipped Verano returns impressive fuel economy thanks largely to its advanced engine technologies like direct injection, variable valve timing and an ECOTEC emissions-reducing system. Verano sedans equipped with the standard 2.4-liter engine are also paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission for smooth power delivery.
Looking for an even more thrilling driving experience? Then the Verano's available 2.0-liter turbo engine is for you! This potent powertrain send 250 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque down to the ground, which is a level of power that you will not find in other compact luxury sedans! With the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, drivers can choose from two 6-speed transmissions -- an automatic or manual setup. For the sporty feel of a manual gearbox, the automatic's Driver Shift Control lets you shift on-demand without a clutch. If you are in the camp that believes a powerful turbocharged engine should be connected to a traditional manual gearbox, then the available stick-shift in the turbocharged Verano will suit you well!
Inside its cabin, the 2017 Buick Verano pairs 5-passenger seating with a generous amount of cargo space behind the second row of seats. Its 14.3 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk rivals many mid-size sedans! Standard interior amenities on Buick's 2017 Verano are highlighted by OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot, dual-zone automatic climate control, ten airbags and steering wheel controls for audio, cruise, and phone. The available Buick IntelliLink with Navigation and 7-inch touch-screen display pair nicely with the Bose Premium 9-speaker sound system. For parking, both a Rear Vision Camera and Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist are offered.
For 2017, the Buick Verano is offered in three nicely equipped trim levels or models, including the Verano base model, Sport Touring and Leather trims. The new Verano Sport Touring model adds sporty touches to the Verano base model, including 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels and rear lip spoiler. The Verano Leather group features not only leather-appointed seating but also an 8-way power-adjustable driver seat plus keyless entry and keyless start. For a highly refined compact sedan, the clear choice is the new Buick Verano!
