At the Detroit Motor Show, the most interesting news is the Verano, the most compact sedan ever appeared on the Buick catalogue and set to do battle with the Audi A3 and Lexus IS250, and other cars like the Toyota Corolla, Volkswagen Jetta , Nissan Sentra and Ford Focus sedan. The new Verano resumes platform from the Delta II from the Opel Astra, the rear suspension, as well as interior and dashboard.
PETROL ENGINES ONLY: The Buick Verano will obviously have an engine more in line with U.S. standards: in fact, will debut with a petrol 2.4 liter Ecotec four-cylinder with 177 hp and 230 Nm of torque, which should allow the car to accelerate in eight seconds on 0-60 mph on and get 31 miles per gallon (just over 13 km/liter). Subsequently, the Verano is also offered with a 2-liter turbocharged direct-injection to be able to provide superior performance. All very particular characteristics that make a car one step ahead.
STANDARD OPTIONS: Among highlights is the safety features with 10 airbags and those curtain that are activated automatically in case of rollover, the multimedia system with touch screen OnStar that automatically notifies in case of accident, and is integrated with the Bose sound system. The OnStar also allows you to remotely control the fuel level, tire pressure and the remote access even allows you to locate the car, lock and unlock and start the engine. The air conditioning is dual zone, the parking brake is electric and starting is by button.
