Buick is hard at work to make sure 2012 Verano is quietest in class
The all-new 2012 Buick Verano is just around the corner and General Motors has released some details about Buick’s latest entry-level model that will hopefully sweeten the deal for those interested in buying it.
Word is that the General and Buick are very hard at work to make sure that the Verano competes and even exceeds the expectations of the customers. For instance, the brand is pitching the latest Verano to be quieter on the inside than its key counterparts: the Lexus IS250 and the Acura TSX. In order achieve such a goal, Buick is most likely employing the same technology being used to make the all-new Chevrolet Malibu quiet as well.
“By positioning the Verano against the very best, our noise and vibration team went above and beyond to deliver the quiet driving experience for which Buicks have become known,” said Chuck Russell, the Verano’s vehicle line director. “Quiet-tuning components and systems are built into every facet of the Verano’s architecture.”

Many of the methods to help the Verano be the most refined car in its class include specially designed laminated glass, noise insulation all around, triple-sealed doors, layers upon layers of acoustic insulation material and much more.
However, all of that sound insulation work usually translates into more weight, which disrupts the performance of any vehicle. Can the 2012 Buick Verano pull-off the same level of sportiness that its direct competitors from Lexus and Acura can do, or does this mean the Buick is going to be the luxury slushmobile of the three? Only time will tell.
The 2012 Buick Verano will go on sale later this year.
