KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz - Updated Date: 8/25/2014


The 2015 Buick Verano is sort of like a Buick LaCrosse that got left in the dryer too long. However, these shrunken dimensions don't mean it's short on the things we like about Buick. It's comfortable, quiet and even kind of fun, thanks to an available turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. While the Verano shares its underpinnings with the Chevrolet Cruze, it offers much higher levels of fit and finish, advanced safety features, and a cloud-like ride. It also gives Buick a foothold in a new and growing niche: the entry-level compact luxury sedan. Compared to the Acura ILX, the Verano not as athletic, nor is it as fuel efficient as a Lexus CT 200h hybrid, but it is an excellent value.

You'll Like This Car If...

If luxury features like a quiet ride, a comfortable interior, and plenty of high-tech options are your thing, but you don't have a lot to spend, then this small Buick might just be what you're looking for. The available turbocharged engine adds a little spice without upsetting the luxury balance.

You May Not Like This Car If...

On the other hand, if you think even a compact sized luxury car should come with performance-oriented handling as standard equipment, then the Buick Verano may not be for you. Instead, check out the snappy feeling Acura ILX.

What's New for 2015

Like many GM vehicles this year, the 2015 Buick Verano gets OnStar with 4G LTE and a standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, which includes a 3-month trial period. A new sport-appearance package is also available.

Driving It Driving Impressions

If we had to pick one word to describe the 2015 Buick Verano, it'd be "comfortable." "Of course," you say, "it's a Buick, after all." While that's true, it's also a compact car, and even among other compact luxury sedans, the Buick Verano has a driving style that makes it feel like a bigger car, but in a good way. It's quiet, the ride is smooth, and this littlest of Buick sedans reminds us more of the larger Regal and LaCrosse than its corporate sibling, the Chevy Cruze. It's not sporty though. The standard 4-cylinder engine is adequate, and while the turbo offers zippy acceleration, the suspension is still tuned more for comfort. No matter, there are plenty of high-tech features available, like forward-collision warning, and the Buick Verano is probably the most comfortable car available at the price. That's saying something.

Favorite Features

QUIET CABIN
Buick says it aimed for the 2015 Verano to be the quietest compact sedan on the market, and we think they may be on to something. Its QuietTuning technology goes a long way toward quelling unwanted noise and vibration.

TURBOCHARGED ENGINE
While the 2015 Buick Verano isn't very sporty, it can be quick if you pony up for the 250-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder. With 60 mph coming up in less than six seconds, and an available manual transmission, the Verano Turbo has plenty of kick.
