When I think of Buick I think of two things—luxurious and expensive. The Buick Verano keeps the luxury but cuts down on the price. Drivers get everything Buick has to offer in a reasonably priced sedan.

The Verano isn’t all luxury. It can make it to 60 mph in about 6.2 seconds, and half the reason it can achieve this is because of its aerodynamic rear spoiler and body design. Not to mention the elegant aerodynamic doors, with chrome accents to add to the overall sophistication of the car. Moving to the front of the Verano, the signature black waterfall grille and tight panel-to-panel gaps imbue the 2013 Verano with an undeniably bold style that is hard to miss. Above the grille are chrome portholes on the hood, which help highlight the beauty of this vehicle. You will see this car coming from any distance with the jewel-like, blue translucent projector-beam headlamps, and you wont be able to look away when it is going, with the dual-outlet stainless-steel exhaust with chrome tips accenting the back end.

Inside the 2013 Buick Verano luxury sedan, it is apparent that everything has a purpose. From the premium materials to the right amount of trunk space, our designers went out of their way to make Verano comfortable and purposeful. You’ll find premium craftsmanship and design everywhere you look along with exceptional seat comfort. When it comes to the driver, Verano makes you the center of attention, keeping you in control while putting you at ease. Adding to the comfort of the interior, the vehicle comes equipped with auto start, which in cold weather will automatically turn on heated seats to assure your warmth. As you sink into your warm seats, you can really focus on your driving with Buick’s Quittuning technology, acoustic laminated glass, triple sealed doors, and refined chasses dynamics are designed to block or absorb sound and vibration.

At the center of all the excitement is a high-resolution, full-color, voice-activated easy to read 7 inch touch-screen display. It combines radio and optional GPS navigation with Buick’s IntelliLink. With IntelliLink you can connect your smart phone so you are able to listen to your favorite music, with its available 9-speaker Bose Premium Audio Speaker System, featuring 7-channel digital custom equalization and subwoofers, or use the voice-activated feature to call or text hands free. When you are not in your car, and can safely use your hands for you phone, Buick is now more convenient than ever with the ONStar RemoteLink app. With this app, you can turn on your vehicle, lock the doors, check if you need gas, and locate you vehicle from your smart phone.

The aerodynamics of the body is the first half of the reason it achieves 0-60 in 6.2 seconds, the other half is what is under the hood. The Verano delivers a refined, responsive performance with a powerful 2.4L dual-overhead-cam 4-cylinder engine, variable valve timing and E85 capability. Feel stable even with all that power with Stabilitrak with traction control to constantly monitor the vehicle to deliver exceptional maneuverability and responsive handling.

Attention to detail is evident in the number of standard safety features in the 2013 Buick Verano. Drive confidently knowing you have 10 air bags, ABS, full-function Traction Control, 6 months of OnStar with Automatic Crash Response, and a comprehensive child seat latch system back you. In the driver's seat, enjoy the peace of mind of thoughtful technology that is designed to handle whatever the road throws your way.
