2015 Buick Verano

New for 2015

The 2015 Buick Verano adds the latest version of OnStar, which includes a Wi-Fi hotspot (with 4G LTE) that requires a subscription, an appearance package for 1SD, 1SG, and 1SL trims that includes a spoiler and a silver/bright chrome grille, and Dark Sapphire Blue Metallic as a new exterior color option.

Vehicle Overview

The Buick Verano is a compact entry-level luxury car that fits below the Regal as the smallest sedan in the automaker’s lineup.


The 2015 Buick Verano is a front-drive sedan that is powered by a pair of available I-4 engines. The volume engine is the 2.4-liter I-4 that makes 180 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque, which gets paired with a six-speed automatic, a combination that is good for an EPA-estimated 21/32 mpg city/highway. The available engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 that makes 250 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and can be paired with either style of six-speed transmission. The manual-transmission model nets an EPA-estimated 20/31 mpg, while the automatic option gets 21/30 mpg. We think it’s better to go with the automatic in this case, as the manual fails to add much excitement to the Verano. As we said, “This car is just too buttoned up to be really engaging.”
Some of the more notable features on the 2015 Verano include heated steering wheel and heated leather front seating, push-button ignition, a 7-inch infotainment screen, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and ten standard airbags.
The 2015 Buick Verano received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars), and in IIHS testing received four ratings of good (the highest possible rating is good).

What We Think

The entry-level luxury segment is just beginning to grow, and we’ve commented that “at least Buick has gotten a head start” with the Verano. The 2015 Buick Verano shares its platform with the Chevrolet Cruze, but thankfully barely resembles the entry-level Chevy. The handling of the Verano is quite good, and it’s incredibly quiet, something we’ve come to expect of Buick.
In an Editor’s Notebook review of a 2012 Buick Verano 1SL we noted, “The Verano handles awful roads better than many larger cars and, more surprising, holds its ground when you take a corner quickly. The steering thankfully has a little more weight than in the Cruze but is still a bit vague on center.” The engine choices are peppy, and the interior shows a luxurious level of refinement, but we find ourselves wondering whether the Verano has enough to capture buyers' interests: “Will these vehicles truly appeal to younger buyers seeking their first premium vehicle, or will buyers continue to hold out for something a little larger?”

Buick’s sales tally though the first six months of 2014 are up compared to last year’s number and it did so with essentially no significant changes or additions to its current lineup. But according to a report by Automotive News, Buick has some big changes just around the corner.
