2017 Buick Verano vs. 2017 Subaru WRX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Verano offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru WRX with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick Verano and the Subaru WRX in the front seats.

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). Based on MSRP, the Buick Verano is clearly a better financial choice over 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.

Dimensions
The Buick Verano is about the same width as the Subaru WRX. When looking at overall length, the Buick Verano takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru WRX.

Drivetrain
The Buick Verano has much less torque than the Subaru WRX, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

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. The Buick Verano has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than 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.
