Vehicle Overview

Editor's note: What follows is preliminary information for the 2012 Buick Verano. Check back later for full details:

The Buick Verano is a new compact sedan that features familiar Buick styling cues including a chrome waterfall grille, blue-tinted projector-beam headlights and porthole appliques on the hood. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard.

Inside, upscale appointments include soft-touch trim, ambient lighting and a woven headliner that's designed to make the cabin quieter. Additional sound-deadening measures include acoustical laminated glass and triple-sealed doors. The list of available premium features include push-button start, automatic air conditioning, leather upholstery and remote start, which will turn on the heated steering wheel and seat heaters when the outside temperature is below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The Verano's trunk is substantial for its class: 15.2 cubic feet when equipped with a tire inflator kit or 14.3 with a spare tire and a jack.

The Verano is available with a next-generation navigation radio that enables enhanced connectivity with mobile devices. The radio includes traditional auxiliary and USB inputs but also lets you stream music from a mobile device using Bluetooth. The system can read aloud text messages and works with mobile music apps such as Pandora. GM's available OnStar app expands the reach of the emergency communication service by letting you check the Verano's fuel level and tire pressure, among other things.

Power comes from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes an estimated 180 horsepower. The engine has direct injection, and it teams with a six-speed automatic transmission. The combination is expected to yield an estimated 22/31 mpg city/highway, according to Buick. The engine takes regular gas but can also run on E85 ethanol, albeit with decreased fuel economy. Eventually, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder will be offered.

Standard safety features include front and rear side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags and knee airbags. All-disc antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are also standard.
