2014 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2015 Buick Verano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Cruze offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Buick Verano. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Verano, the Chevrolet Cruze may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Cruze will require fewer stops at 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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Cruze is clearly a better financial choice over the Buick Verano. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Cruze carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Buick Verano.

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

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze is significantly less powerful than the Buick Verano. 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 Chevrolet Cruze and the Buick Verano. The Chevrolet Cruze has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Buick Verano.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Cruze is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick Verano.
