2017 Buick Verano vs. 2017 Nissan Altima Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Verano offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Nissan Altima with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Nissan Altima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Verano.

Convenience
With the Nissan Altima 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Verano will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Altima. 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 Nissan Altima.

Dimensions
The Buick Verano is about the same width as the Nissan Altima. The Buick Verano is slightly shorter than the Nissan Altima, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Buick Verano has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Altima, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Buick Verano and the Nissan Altima.

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

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