2017 Buick Verano – Improved Body and Interior:

According to the carmaker, the new Verano will be based on the D2XX platform. This platform is used in Envision, Cruze, and Opel Astra, so we expect the upcoming car to share a lot of exterior features with these three models. The car will, however, get some serious modifications that will give it true looks of a modern-day mid-size sedan.

A “waterfall” grille and wing-shaped headlights will be the major highlights in the front end of 2017 Buick Verano. Other features in this end include LED daytime running lights and a pronounced bumper. When it comes to the rear end, the car will get integrated dual exhaust tips and a stylish bumper. The sides will look spectacular with 10-spoke 17-inch aluminum wheels and shiny door handles. The interior of 2017 Buick Verano will be roomy enough to fit 5 passengers as well as their luggage. With two rows of seats, the upcoming sedan will qualify as a mid-size car. As for the seats, we expect them to be comfortable with top quality materials and adjustable mechanisms.

Technology wise, the Buick sedan will spot a brand new infotainment unit with a built-in navigation system. The unit will support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The car will be equipped with other tech features such as a separate climate control and a powerful audio system. Some connection options such as Bluetooth, Smartphone integration, Wi-Fi and USB ports are highly anticipated in the new car.

Both basic and advanced safety features will be available to keep 2017 Buick Verano safe and secure. You should look forward to parking sensors, rearview camera, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, airbags, and seatbelts.

The highly refurbished model should not cost more than $31,000. The car will hit showrooms and dealer shops in the second half of 2016.
