Buick Verano Turbo Rated at 31 MPG Highway

The turbocharged version of Buick's compact Verano will get 31 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The 2013 Verano Turbo is rated at 20/31/24 mpg city/highway/combined. Non-turbocharged Veranos use a 180-horsepower four-cylinder engine and get 21/32/25 mpg.

The Verano Turbo, powered by a 250-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, goes from zero to 60 mph in an estimated 6.2 seconds, Buick says. The automaker previously said the Verano Turbo’s fuel economy would be in line with the brand’s other turbocharged models, though it bests the sibling Regal turbo's 18/29 mpg city/highway EPA rating.

The Verano Turbo goes on sale later this year.

20/31 also puts it 1 mpg city ahead of the 2.4L Regal (auto).

fueleconomy.gov currently only lists the 2.0L turbo with manual, and does not specify tank size. (Auto will also be available; late-arrival?)

The Regal went from 15.6 gal on the base 2.4L (same as the 2.4L Verano) up to 18.0 gal on the 2.0L turbo. Though the Regal is also a larger car, overall.


One thing I like in an auto is range. The less you have to fill the tank, especially in January in Chicago, the better! It seems a lot of manufactures are reducing gas tank size and corresponding fuel weight to attain higher mpg. While this is nice, it usually results in more fillups and less range on trips. I like 20 gal tanks where if your car can average, say 26 mpg, one can go around 450 miles between refueling.


Regal has 18 or 18.5 gallon tank unless you have e assist. then your tank is 15.8 gallons.

Verano tank size wont change with turbo. gm reduces tank size with e assist.


I guess the source I saw for 15.6 gal on the base Regal was wrong. fueleconomy.gov does indeed list 18.0 gal for the 2.4L and 2.0L turbo Regals.


for 2013 the eassist regal is the standard regal and the tank size is 15.8 gallons. That wasnt true until the 2013 MY.
