The all-new Buick Verano made its debut at the Shanghai Motor Show last month. If the second generation model had to be described in one word, we at Freehold Buick GMC would say “dynamic.” The compact sedan features elegant design combined with efficiency and precision.
Modeled after the Buick Avenir concept and inspired by the Riviera concept of 2013, Buick’s new Verano takes on a sleeker shape. The windshield is raked at a steeper angle than the previous model, giving the compact sedan an elongated look and a lower drag coefficient, which means increased efficiency. The Verano’s grille features the signature Buick waterfall, and it is flanked by wing-shaped headlights and LED daytime running lights. The tail lights echo the same wing shape.
The Verano is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged Ecotec engine, delivering 166 hp and 184 pounds per feet of sporty driving. The engine is complemented by a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
With the Verano’s enhanced design and upgraded engineering, the sedan is already laying claim to the title of class-leading fuel efficiency.
As for more specific details of what to expect in the U.S. version of the all-new Verano, we will have to wait until the automaker decides to oblige.
