The much-anticipated 2016 Buick Verano’s reveal happened at the Shanghai GM Gala Night, just ahead of the Shanghai Auto Show. The Verano compact sedan was first introduced in 2011, and the 2016 model will be all-new, marking the car’s second generation.
Though details remain scarce, we do know that the 2016 Verano was inspired by the 2013 Buick Riviera concept, however designers also used elements from the new, luxurious Avenir concept. The Avenir-inspired styling cues include the front and rear wing-tipped LEDs and a windshield and rear glass with a steeper angle. The steeply-raked glass in the front and rear not only reduces the drag coefficient, but also makes the car appear longer than it actually is.
Autoblog.com points out that the new Verano is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged Ecotec four cylinder, capable of putting out 166 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.
It remains to be seen how the U.S.-bound model may differ. Here at Ewing Buick GMC, we’ll keep you updated as more Buick Verano information becomes available.
A new Verano design recently debuted at the Shanghai Motor Show and it’s got us very excited! The next-generation Verano design elements were inspired by the Riviera and Avenir concepts that were introduced in 2013 and at this year’s North American International Auto Show.
The new Verano design is elongated and takes on a more dynamic style than the previous one. The Verano will still have the signature Buick waterfall grille, but it will feature more wing-shaped headlights. In addition, the Buick Verano will be more sculpted and show off a dual inset exhaust.
The next-gen Verano will be equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged Ecotec four cylinder that boasts 166 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
We’re looking forward to the next-generation Buick Verano and can’t wait until it arrives here in the states. More specifically, here at Ewing Buick GMC. If you want more information about the upcoming Verano, click here.
The Buick Verano sits at the low-end of the Buick lineup in terms of size, but it’s certainly not low on quality. In fact, the new Buick Verano, equipped with all kinds of technology and style, actually brings a luxury feel to the compact segment. While other brands stash their worst car at the bottom of the lineup, Buick instead has created a surprising gem in the Verano.
One of the things that sets the Verano apart is its 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability. Sure, it’s not the only car in the world to feature that technology, but it’s amazing that the Buick brand found a way to fit that advanced technology into the Verano while keeping it an affordable compact car. Thanks to that technology, you can stream music, make calls, use navigation systems and more—all without using a data plan.
The Verano also features a 250-horsepower engine and gives owners a choice between a six-speed automatic and a six-speed manual transmission. It even comes with other luxury touches—a rearview camera, keyless entry, and more. Plus, it’s a top safety pick. If you are looking for the biggest bang for your budget, make sure to come in to Ewing Buick GMC to check out the Buick Verano.
