Buick Verano Interior
The 2015 Buick Verano’s cabin earns reviewers’ praise for its attractive layout and premium materials. They say the cabin remains comfortable and quiet, even over the roughest roads. According to test drivers, the Buick Verano’s front seats are roomy, but they wish its back seats had a bit more space for adults. The Verano’s navigation system and touch screen are easy-to-use, automotive journalists report. However, some say the dashboard is too cluttered with physical buttons.
- "The Verano's cabin continues the theme of luxury and elegance, featuring a flowing dash and center stack along with plenty of pleasant materials." -- Left Lane News
- "The 2015 Buick Verano boasts an interior that's high on quality materials and comfortable seats." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Despite sharing the same platform as the Cruze, the Verano's ride quality is considerably more upscale and comfortable. It drives over most road blemishes with ease, and it would take a very rough surface for occupants to feel discomfort.” -- AutoTrader
- "The understated interior is composed of quality materials. Most surfaces are made of nicely grained or finished plastics. The armrests are wrapped in leather or vinyl that matches the seat upholstery, which is a nice touch. Overall, the ambiance is surprisingly posh." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
The five-seat Buick Verano is available with leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel and a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. There’s plenty of room for front-seat passengers, reviewers say, but as with most cars in the class, they complain that the back seat can be tight for adults. Test drivers are particularly impressed with the Verano’s sound-deadening materials, which they say make for a nearly silent ride.
- "The front passengers will be plenty comfortable, with the driver's seat especially well bolstered for a car of this size. The rear seat isn't quite as generous, but at least it's no worse than competitors." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Despite its entry-level designation, Buick engineers went gone to great lengths to ensure the Verano's cabin is as quiet as possible to give the little car a luxurious feel." -- Left Lane News
- “The Verano also benefits from a quiet cabin thanks to Buick's sound-deadening efforts. Wind and road noise have been minimized to an almost imperceptible level, which results in reduced occupant fatigue during both interstate cruising and around-town driving." -- AutoTrader
- "It may be a compact car, but the 2014 Buick Verano is deceptively roomy. Drivers of any size can get comfortable behind the wheel and will find plenty of seat adjustability." -- Edmunds (2014)
Standard features in the 2015 Buick Verano include a rearview camera, Buick’s voice-activated IntelliLink infotainment system with a 7-inch touch-screen display, USB and auxiliary ports, satellite radio, Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control and a Wi-Fi hot spot provided by OnStar 4G LTE (subscription required). Optional features include a nine-speaker Bose sound system, push-button start, navigation, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert and a moonroof.
According to some automotive journalists, the Verano has a navigation system and a touch screen that are simple to use. While most reviewers complain that the Verano has too many similar-looking dashboard controls, a few find them to be useful alternatives to the touch-screen buttons.
- "We like the Verano's standard 7-inch touch-screen interface, but we do wish Buick would cut down on the number of buttons surrounding it." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Our test car also included the excellent navigation system that was easy to program and scan on the fly thanks to its redundant touchscreen and multipurpose knob controls." -- Edmunds (2013)
- "Verano suffers from the same control issues that plague other Buicks, primarily too many look-alike buttons clustered too close together on the central dashboard stack. A few buttons use abbreviations whose meanings are not immediately apparent." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
The base 2015 Verano has 14.3 cubic feet of trunk space, which is good for the class. Models equipped with a Bose sound system have 14 cubic feet of trunk room. Test drivers are impressed with the Verano’s trunk space and wide trunk opening.
- "This entry-level luxury sedan has compact dimensions, yet still offers an attractively trimmed interior with reasonable room for four occupants and their luggage." -- Edmunds (2014)
- "Verano has a center console box, an uncovered bin forward of the shifter, two cupholders, and bottle holders in the doors. The trunk is deep and the opening wide." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
