2012 Buick Verano

The Buick Verano cleverly sits in the chasm between top-trim compact cars and entry level luxury cars, making it an interesting alternative for buyers who want a fancy ride that won't set their finances ablaze. For less than $24,000 the Verano offers up tasteful looks, an upscale interior, an incredibly quiet cabin and competent, comfortable road manners.
