That explains Buick there is a window of opportunity for a small luxury sedan priced below the Audi A3, Lexus IS 250 and Acura TSX sedan, but above the Honda Civic, Ford Focus and Chevrolet Cruze. A larger engine than the Cruze's 1.4-liter turbo and 1.8-liter normally aspirated four-cylinder choices, this all-aluminum engine features direct injection and continuous variable valve timing on the intake and exhaust to deliver 180 horsepower at 6.700 rpm and 171 pound- feet of torque at 4.900 rpm on regular fuel.

Buick has gone the extra mile, or two, to isolate the mechanical underpinnings and Their associated operating Those noises from within the cabin. Before the sound makes its way to the ears of people riding in the Verano's cabin, it must figure out a way to permeate two damping mats on the firewall, nylon and foam baffles Strategically located within the hollow parts of the chassis, five layers of acoustic headliner, sound deadener on the underbody sheetmetal and trunk, triple-seal doors, 5.4-mm acoustic laminated windshield and 4.85-mm-acoustic laminated side glass.

But after spending some time with the Verano, all joking aside, Buick's strategy Appears quite solid. The Verano is a remarkable new entry-level luxury effort.
