2017 Nissan Maxima vs. 2017 Buick Verano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Verano than the Nissan Maxima, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Maxima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Verano.

Convenience
The Nissan Maxima 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). The Nissan Maxima will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Buick Verano, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Nissan Maxima will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Buick Verano.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Maxima is much wider than the Buick Verano, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Nissan Maxima, which is slightly longer than the Buick Verano.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Nissan Maxima does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Buick Verano.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Maxima has a much more powerful engine than the Buick Verano. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan Maxima and the Buick Verano. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Nissan Maxima as you will in the Buick Verano.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan Maxima is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick Verano.
