The Buick Verano made its debut at the North American International Auto Show in January 2011. The Buick Verano parts and the compact sedan itself are manufactured by Buick Division of General Motors Company at the Orion Assembly Plant in Michigan. The Buick Verano is reputed to be the smallest vehicle in the Buick's lineup. It shares GM's global compact sedan platform Delta II with the Chevrolet Cruze. The car comes with a 105.7-inch wheelbase, which is 3 inches shorter than the wheelbase of the Mercedes-Benz C-class sedan, thus the Verano enters a compact sedan segment among the Audi A3 and Audi A4. The Buick Verano is Buick's fist step on the compact luxury arena.
Although the car is based on the Delta II platform, its dimensions are close to those of the Buick Regal, which is based on the larger platform Epsilon II. The Buick Verano is 181-inches long, which is just 9 inches shorter than the Buick Regal. Like the Regal, the Buick Verano is offered with the front-wheel drive, and it shares the power-train with Regal as well (a 2.4-liter Ecotec I4 engine with direct injection that produces 177 hp). The direct injection engine with the variable valve timing and other power-enhancing parts ensures balance of horsepower and fuel economy to provide improved performance. This engine accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 8.0 seconds and achieves fuel economy of around 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The engine is paired with either a 6-speed standard automatic transmission or manual transmission, which comes as an option. The Buick Verano is also to be powered with the same 2.0-liter I4 turbocharged engine offered in the Regal Turbo.
Aside from the platform, the Buick Verano shares some parts and side-lines with the Chevy Cruise. The front end and fog lights of the Buick Verano are similar to the Cruise ones. However, the Verano has larger chrome grill, plus long hood with flowing lines and hood vents that are similar to new LaCrosse. The compact sedan Buick Verano features compact rounded rear window, sharp and angular tail lights with chrome finish accenting both sides of the car. Although Verano is based on the Chevy Cruze model, it has a totally different, more luxurious exterior accessories and more comfortable interior. In addition to the Buick special soft-touch materials, new leather colors, wood and metallic trim, the Verano's convenience features include push-button start, electronic parking brake, 10 airbags, dual-zone climate control heated seats and heated steering wheel. The GM infotainment system of the next generation is also available.
The Buick Verano differs from the Chevy Cruze and from the segment rivals by the quietest ride ensured by the triple door seals, laminated glass heaps, and noise reducing technologies. The technologies include noise canceling nylon baffles that are filled with sound-absorbing foam and mounted in the body structure hollows. Even the exhaust and intake system are tuned for noiseless performance. Moreover, the brake and fuel lines are isolated to reduce vibration. Thanks to all the above things, the compact Buick Verano is one of the quietest vehicles on the road.
