2014 Verano uses style, turbocharged engine to defeat Accord

Cavender Buick GMC North offers 2014 Buick Verano test drives

SAN ANTONIO, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- One of the most competitive classes in the automotive industry is the mid-size sedan segment. This portion of the industry is filled with some of the most popular vehicles available to American consumers. Cavender Buick GMC North is lucky to have one of the emerging stars of the next generation. The 2014 Buick Verano possesses rising stock because it is one of the vehicles helping Buick change its image toward a younger and more tech-savvy demographic. However, the Verano still has to prove itself against the best available. To help customers make the best possible choice, Cavender Buick GMC North has compared the 2014 Buick Verano vs. the 2014 Honda Accord.

The 2014 Verano has a fairly tough task ahead of it to match the overwhelming popularity of the 2014 Honda Accord. There is little doubt about the impact the Accord name has had on car shoppers. It is pleasantly designed; it has a reputation for reliability and does pretty well as far as resale value. Where the 2014 Buick Verano starts to quickly separate itself from the 2014 Accord is in the design of its interior. As a Buick vehicle, the 2014 Verano has a surprisingly roomy interior for a car of its class. Even taller people in the back seat will find a comfortable position in the Verano.

At the base trim, the Buick Verano is outfitted with a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that is capable of making 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. With the standard six-speed transmission the 2014 Verano will achieve Environmental Protection Agency fuel-economy estimates of 21 miles per gallon in the city and 32 miles per gallon on the highway. Conversely, the 2014 Honda Accord comes out with little bit hotter performance. The Honda sedan has a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine of its own that makes 185 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque, while still squeezing out a few more mpg than the Verano's powertrain.

The 2014 Buick Verano has an ace up its sleeve with the availability of a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that greatly improves engine performance to produce 250-horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, while still maintaining largely the same overall fuel-economy.
