If you've been keeping up with the S & K Buick GMC blog, you might remember a post or two regarding the 2012 Buick Verano. This is Buick's newest compact vehicle, and came as a big surprise to those who thought it would simply a Chevy Cruze with a Buick logo. We understand why people were concerned about this, because they are built on the same platform. A number of reviews about the Verano have come out stating this is a very unique vehicle that offers a different feel from the rest of the new Buick lineup.
Critics such as Kelsey Mays of Cars.com and Malcolm Gunn of the West Palm Beach Post each recently had a chance to take the Verano for a spin. To say that both were satisfied with it would be an extreme understatement. Both critics gave the 2012 Buick Verano excellent ratings for its class-defying luxury, competitive pricing, and underestimated performance.

Not only does it have more than enough power, it also features an commendable 21 mpg city/32 mpg highway rating as estimated by the EPA.
