2016 Buick Verano vs. 2017 Subaru WRX Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Buick Verano will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Subaru WRX, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Verano will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru WRX. 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 Subaru WRX.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Verano is significantly less powerful than the Subaru WRX. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

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