2017 Buick Verano Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2017 Buick Verano was new.


Interior: 7.0

Reviewers are keen on the 2017 Buick Verano’s interior, praising the use of high-quality materials and attractive design. Passenger accommodations are marked by comfort in the front and lack of space in the rear. The Verano’s infotainment system is easy to use but has some functionality problems. Cargo space is on par with the rest of the class.

  • "The Verano's interior is well-crafted and uses higher-grade materials than you'll find in more mainstream compact or even midsize sedans. The large block of look-alike buttons on the console and some of the trim pieces don't reinforce the Verano's luxury aspirations." -- Edmunds
  • "The 2016 Buick Verano boasts an interior that's high on quality materials and comfortable seats." -- Kelley Blue Book (2016)
  • "The Verano's cabin continues the theme of luxury and elegance, featuring a flowing dash and center stack along with plenty of pleasant materials." -- Left Lane News (2016)


The Buick Verano seats five on standard cloth/leatherette upholstery. Upgrades include leather seating, heated front seats, an eight-way power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, and a heated steering wheel.

Passenger room in the Verano’s rear seat is tight, with lack of legroom being the main concern. Up front, the driver and passenger’s seats are comfortable and provide good support. The cabin also stays quiet from outside road and wind noise.

The Verano features two complete LATCH systems on the second row outboard seats. The middle seat only includes a top tether anchor.

  • "The Verano is ‘compact’ though, something you'll notice in the backseat, where legroom is tight. If you need more room, it's best to consider one of the more mainstream midsize sedans that are in the same price range." -- Edmunds
  • "Aside from its relaxed manner, the Verano benefits from a quiet cabin thanks to Buick's sound-deadening efforts. Wind and road noise have been minimized to an almost imperceptible level. The result is reduced occupant fatigue during both interstate cruising and around-town driving." -- Autotrader (2016)
  • "The front passengers will be plenty comfortable, with the driver's seat especially well bolstered for a car of this size. The rear seat isn't quite as generous, but at least it's no worse than competitors." -- Kelley Blue Book (2015)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2017 Verano include dual-zone automatic climate control, a six-speaker audio system, a USB port, and OnStar with 4G LTE and a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot. Optional features include heated outside mirrors, a power moonroof, a Bose premium nine-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, satellite radio, navigation, an infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, voice command recognition, and smartphone integration, a rearview camera, remote start, rear parking sensors, proximity key entry, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, and forward collision warning.

The Verano’s optional infotainment system is easy to use and boasts sharp graphics. Smartphone integration provides another dimension of familiarity. However, sometimes the screen responds slowly to touches, or not at all. A plethora of physical buttons across the dash make for a somewhat confusing layout.

  • "The 7-inch touchscreen is large and legible from a distance, and the arrangement of its icons can be customized, as on a smartphone. For iPhone users, there's additional voice command control through Siri Eyes Free mode. On the downside, the user interface can occasionally be slow to register finger inputs and sometimes misses commands entirely." -- Edmunds
  • "We like the Verano's standard 7-inch touch-screen interface, but we do wish Buick would cut down on the number of buttons surrounding it." -- Kelley Blue Book (2016)
  • "Verano suffers from the same control issues that plague other Buicks, primarily too many look-alike buttons clustered too close together on the central dashboard stack. A few buttons use abbreviations whose meanings are not immediately apparent. When equipped with keyless entry/engine start, the engine's ignition button is mounted high on the center stack instead of near the steering column or under the instrument panel." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

The Verano offers 14.3 cubic feet of cargo space, which is average for the class. The trunk features a wide opening and deep dimensions. The rear seat also folds down in a 60/40 split to increase utility.

  • "This entry-level luxury sedan has compact dimensions, yet still offers an attractively trimmed interior with reasonable room for four occupants and their luggage." -- Edmunds (2014)
  • "The trunk has is (sic) fairly large, with 14.3 cubic feet of cargo space in the lower line models. When the Bose sound system is added, that drops slightly to 14.0 cubic feet. A standard split-folding rear seat allows longer items to fit." -- Autoblog (2014)
  • “The trunk is deep and the opening wide. The lack of a decklid trunk-release button or keyhole is a curious omission, however." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
