Editor's Overview

Aiming to build a miniature version of its LaCrosse sedan, Buick’s compact Verano for 2017 nearly achieves that goal. Unfortunately, lackluster sales have seen the Verano’s best bits axed this year, namely its turbocharged engine and 6-speed manual transmission. Still, for those seeking comfort over performance in a tidy package, the 2017 Verano is worth a look.

Internet, mileage, comfort.

Great comfort, affordable gas, an the car is smooth driving. It is also at an affordable price. The high tech amenities are my favorite feature of the vehicle. Having internet within the car makes really easy for my kids to stay calm, and entertained.

- Don C

Drives great. Love the sleek look of the vehicle.

Love the car. The only issue I have had is that the a/c seems lax. Works great and puts out a lot of air, but never seems to cool the car, especially the back seat.

- J R

The back seat is very tight. There isn't a lot of legroom in the back seat. So don't plan family trips in the vehicle.

I really love the drive feeling of the car. It's also very nice having the navigation. I wish it had a bigger engine. The 2.2L doesn't have enough power.
