2014 Buick Verano Wins AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Award



The 2014 Buick Verano is the highest scoring Premium Compact Car in AutoPacific’s 2014 Ideal Vehicle Award research. The creators at Buick did a great job listening to what their customers wanted.  The Verano is at the top of its category against some impressive competitors such as the Volkswagen GTI, Acura ILX, Mercedes-Benz CLA, Subaru Impreza WRX, and the Mitsubishi EVO.  The Verano was second in Vehicle Satisfaction Award research trailing the winning Mercedes-Benz CLA by 8-rating points.

The satisfied Buick Verano owners do not want much change. Of the fifteen categories in the Ideal Vehicle survey, the 2014 Buick Verano led or tied eight categories and was within three percentage points of one more.

The top five highest ratings by Buick Verano owners are: same interior lighting, same wheels, same exterior lighting, same ride/handling, and same safety features as now.

Although the Buick Verano is at the top there are several things owners would change. Owners would like  better visibly from the drivers seat, more passenger room, simpler information and entertainment system, and more interior storage.  Forty percent of owners felt very strongly about wanting it to be easier to get in and out of the vehicle.
