2015 Buick Verano vs. 2015 Hyundai Sonata Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Buick Verano than in the Hyundai Sonata, due to the Buick Verano's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Hyundai Sonata will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Verano.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Buick Verano, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Hyundai Sonata. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Buick Verano is much higher than that for the Hyundai Sonata.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Verano is much slimmer than the Hyundai Sonata, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Buick Verano is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Sonata, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Buick Verano has about the same turning radius as the Hyundai Sonata, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick Verano and the Hyundai Sonata. The Buick Verano has less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Sonata, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Verano is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Sonata.
