Compact Car — Buick Verano
The Verano was Buick’s entry-level sedan that joined the lineup as a 2012 model, but left the portfolio following the 2017 model year. Featuring a sportier design that was created to appeal to a younger demographic, Verano offered OnStar 4G LTE connectivity and a standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot to provide a mobile hub. The standard engine was a 2.4-liter EcoTec four cylinder that produces 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque, paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission to achieve an EPA rating of 21 mpg city / 32 mpg hwy / 25 mpg combined. Surprisingly, Buick even offered the Verano with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Verano showcased Buick’s QuietTuning technology, designed to block and absorb sound and eliminate vibrations to give Verano one of the quietest interiors in its class.
