Buick's First Compact Model Priced at $23,470

July 14, 2011

More car shoppers these days are purchasing compact models and even luxury manufacturers are keeping up with the trend by offering all-new cars for this segment.

Case in point is the new 2012 Verano, Buick's first entry-level compact sedan.

The pricing starts at $23,470 for the base model and goes up to $26,850 for the top of the line version (including destination charge).

The Verano comes with a four-cylinder, six-speed automatic producing 180 horsepower. (a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine will be added later)

Standard features include leatherette upholstery, a 7-inch touch-screen, climate control, remote start, power accessories, steering-wheel controls, Bluetooth and USB input.

The closest competitors to the Verano include the Volvo S40 and Audi A3 - both of which are priced about $4,000 higher.

The Verano seems to be a good value considering that a similarly equipped Chevrolet Cruze LTZ (the Verano's sibling) is about the same price.

We're expecting the Verano to go on sale later this year - if you're considering a compact car, make sure to put the Verano on your test-drive list.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
