2017 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2016 Buick Verano Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Cruze as you will with the Buick Verano, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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. In this case, the Chevrolet Cruze will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Buick Verano.

Performance
The Chevrolet Cruze has less horsepower than the Buick Verano, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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.

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