For some time, it seemed as though anywhere you turned, giant SUVs and other massive vehicles were taking over the automotive world by storm. Consumers seemed to demand excessive space to haul passengers and cargo everywhere they went – even if it caused gas to cost a fortune and parking and visibility to become seriously hampered. But, in the past few years, the bigger is better motto has declined quite drastically. Now, consumers are seeking out compact (even subcompact) cars. While they may not be able to seat a family of eight, they still provide some great, worthwhile qualities. One, in particular, being the 2016 Buick Verano. Not only is the 2016 Verano a compact sedan, but it also features a full load of luxury perks. Here's a closer look.
Upscale Lineup. The Buick Verano shows off a 2016 lineup that offers six trim levels – each sporting at least one standard luxury item. The base-level 1SV trim, for instance, houses a dual-zone automatic climate control and Buick's OnStar safety system with 4G WiFi connectivity. The OnStar system equips the Verano with automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance, and stolen-vehicle assistance.
The regular Verano trim (previously the base trim) comes with upscale perks like remote engine start and a host of luxury-grade technology, including
Buick's IntelliLink interface
Smartphone app integration
7-inch touchscreen display
Further up the 2016 Verano lineup, you'll find even more upscale equipment with a huge list of safety systems, such as:
Blind-spot monitoring warning
Rear cross-traffic alerts
Auto-dimming rearview mirror
Compact Size, Luxury Interior. One thing that is so well-loved about compact sedans is that while they may appear quite small on the outside, the interior tends to be impressively roomy. The trunk in the Verano, for example, provides an impressive capacity of 15.2 cubic feet – a measurement fairly hard to come by in a compact.
The luxury interior of the Verano is also proof that smaller can be just as nice. The Verano is well assembled with higher-grade materials than what is typically found in other small – or even midsize – sedans.
A Supple Ride. Some believe that when compared to a larger vehicle, compact sedans aren't near as smooth and that they lack zippy acceleration and other sought-after on-road qualities. But, compact sedans like the 2016 Verano crumble this falsehood. The Verano provides a supple, comfortable ride on almost any road surface; it is also whisper quiet – even at highway speeds. Other perks of driving the Verano, include its steady, composted demeanor around turns and precise steering. It's also not bad on gas.
