If you've been keeping up with Buick news recently, you've likely read an article or two concerning the 2012 Buick Verano. The new compact model from Buick is a big surprise to many who were thinking it would simply be a rebadged Chevy Cruze. The vehicle is, after all, built on the same platform. What many drivers and critics are finding, however, is that the Verano is a vehicle that stands out in its own right amongst the rest of the new Buick lineup.
More specifically, automotive critics, Kelsey Mays of Cars.com and Malcolm Gunn of the West Palm Beach Post each recently had a chance to get behind the wheel of the Verano, and to say that both were satisfied with it would be a drastic understatement. Both critics praised the 2012 Buick Verano for its class-defying luxury, competitive pricing, and speedy performance.
How well does the Verano perform? It packs a 2.4-liter, Ecotec, 4-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission under the hood. This combination results in an impressive 177 horsepower from the Verano, but doesn't compromise the vehicle's fuel economy either. Rather, it features an admirable 21 mpg city/32 mpg highway rating as estimated by the EPA.
