The 2015 Buick Verano is a compact sedan offered in 4 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $21,065. For that price, it mainly competes with the Mazda 3 Sedan, the Kia Forte, and the Chevrolet Cruze. Between 4 trims, the Verano offers 3 powertrains. The base engine is a 2.4L Inline-4 engine mated to a 6-Speed Automatic transmission capable of making 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. If more power is required, there is also a 250 horsepower-making 2.0L Turbocharged Inline-4 engine exclusive to the top-end Premium Turbo trim. This engine could be equipped with a 6-Speed Automatic transmission or 6-Speed Manual transmission.
The Verano reaches 60 MPH from zero in 9.0 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 6.6 seconds with the 2.0L Turbo engine. Depending on the powertrain, the Verano can manage a combined fuel economy between 24 and 25 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 8 striking colors the Verano comes in really pull you towards itself.
