After making its debut at the Shanghai Motor Show, excitement for the new 2016 Buick Verano has reached fever pitch. Learn more about the innovative styling and features that have helped make the Verano one of the most attractive cars for 2016.
In the past, some people have criticized Buick for making its Verano seem too conservative. The company applied that feedback to the 2016 model, which seems to have taken its design cues from the marque’s Enclave and LaCrosse. The large, shiny grille is a can’t-miss feature up front, flanked by modern horizontal headlights. The bumper has also been lowered to give the 2016 Verano a more confident image. Large LED taillights and an integrated exhaust outlet give this new model as large of an impression when leaving as it does upon arrival.
Inside the Verano, drivers and passengers can feel surrounded by a luxury bubble, thanks to its solid construction insulating occupants from road noise. High-end materials suit the Verano’s opulent image. The front seats are comfortable, and while you may not get much rear leg room, the space itself is adequate for a compact car.
The 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine on the Verano’s base model has all the power you need for city driving and road trips. The vehicle generates 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque, taking nine seconds to reach 60 mph from standing.
The ride isn’t especially sporty, but it is sure-footed and smooth. For more muscle, choose the turbo-charged option. This 2.0-liter engine is punchier, delivering 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The turbo-charged version can easily overtake the standard Verano, hitting 60 mph from zero in only 6.6 seconds.
Good Fuel Economy
The base model 2016 Buick Verano gets 21 miles per gallon driving around town and 32 miles per gallon on the open road. You might expect the turbocharged version to be a heavy gas consumer considering its superior performance. Actually, this version gets the same miles per gallon around town and a respectable 30 miles per gallon on the freeway.
The 2016 Buick Verano is a thoroughly modern vehicle, with innovative features for entertainment and comfort. People who love to access the Internet on the go will appreciate Bluetooth connectivity, smartphone app integration, OnStar with 4G LTE, and the built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. The Bose stereo system makes sure your favorite road trip tunes sound their best. Dual-zone automatic climate control provides pleasant motoring. Plus, Buick’s IntelliLink touch-screen infotainment system enables you to make the most of the Verano’s high-tech features.
Superb Safety Features
Buick has added a number of features to keep you, your passengers, and other drivers safe. The rearview camera and blind spot monitoring help improve your visibility. Lane departure and forward collision warnings can help you avoid an accident. You’ll also find the antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, and range of airbags that you’d expect from a modern motorcar.
With its blend of luxury styling, world-class safety features, and innovative extras, the Buick Verano has the credentials to impress motoring fans across America.
