2017 Buick Verano vs. 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Buick Verano than in the Chevrolet Cruze, due to the Buick Verano's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick Verano and the Chevrolet Cruze in the front seats.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Cruze requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Buick Verano, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Buick Verano is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Cruze. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Buick Verano will cost more in transportation costs than the Chevrolet Cruze.

Dimensions
The Buick Verano is a little wider than the Chevrolet Cruze, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Buick Verano takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chevrolet Cruze.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Buick Verano doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Cruze.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Verano is somewhat more powerful than the Chevrolet Cruze.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick Verano and the Chevrolet Cruze.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Verano than that of the Chevrolet Cruze.
