2014 Buick Verano Turbo


Sporting an optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 250 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, the 2014 Buick Verano has serious legs. Starting at $23,700 - the Buick Verano is a seriously good value too. Based on the same platform as the Chevrolet Cruze, Buick created an interior that is nearly as premium as a Cadillac.

"Take a look inside the 2014 Buick Verano and you’ll find comfort that feels right at home. We went out of our way to make Verano comfortable, user–friendly and purposeful. Available heated front seats allow you to adjust the warmth to your liking. Rear 60/40 split-folding seats provide generous seating options. QuietTuning® technology blocks and absorbs outside noise to help provide a serene ride. Premium craftsmanship throughout the cabin ensures every detail tells a story." - - Buick

The video was filmed in the hills of Southern California. Over the course of nine days of hauling friends, family and equipment, the 2014 Buick Verano proved to be an excellent ride. It's quiet, swift, rides smoothly and is remarkably responsive. The turbocharged 2-liter is a gem of a power-train and its comes hooked up to a competent six-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed manual transmission is available.

There are a few negatives including mediocre gas mileage and a cramped rear seat. The video goes into more detail spotlighting these and other observations.

All in all, the Buick Verano Turbo proved to be a superb ride with a few minor blemishes.
