Although this manufacturer was primarily known for large cars in the past, it offers compact models these days as well. One of them should come with a bunch of novelties for the next year, as 2022 Buick Verano. If you are familiar with this name, that’s because it was available for some time in North America as well. These days, its primary market is China. It is pretty much a rebadged version of Opel Astra, which is one of the most popular models of this German carmakers. The upcoming update could bring a fine amount of novelties, mostly in terms of aesthetics.

  • Powerful engines
  • Smooth ride
  • Good sound isolation

  • Tight rear seats

Exterior

As we already mentioned, compact car shares a lot of things with the Opel Astra. Moreover, it is pretty much a rebadged version, with minimal differences both in mechanics and aesthetics. However, a mid-cyclere fresh is expected for the next year and 2022 Buick Verano could go in a little bit different direction. However, it definitely won’t change too much. It will keep same design characteristics and continue to come in two variants,either as a four-door sedan or five-door hatchback. The upcoming model will come with major updates, which will mostly affect front end. Count on the new front fascia, changes on the bumper, grille etc. Rest of the car should keep the familiar look.

Interior

Compared to other models with this badge, this one isn’t that spectacular on the inside, which is expected, considering that this is practically the same vehicle as Opel Astra. Still, that doesn’t mean that its cabin is bad. It comes with plenty of style and quality materials on the inside but definitely lacks that final, premium touch. Despite that fact, it definitely comes with plenty of standard equipment, including the latest tech features and similar things. The upcoming update could expand this list even more. Count on new color schemes as well.

Engines

The engine departments will carry on in the same way. There are two engines in the offer for this small sedan/hatchback. Base models will continue with a familiar 1.5-liter unit that delivers 167 horsepower and comes in pair with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. An optional2.0-liter turbo-four comes with plenty of power. You can count on full 250 horsepower, which is transferred to wheels via the 8-speed automatic transmission.

2020 Buick Verano Release Date and Price

If we consider that the 2022 Buick Verano will probably receive a major update, an earlier launch date sounds quite likely. This would mean sometime in the third quarter of the next year. On the other side, don’t expect bigger changes in price. Base models will go around $25,000.
