DETROIT (AP) — For the first time in its history, General Motors’ Buick luxury brand will get an upscale compact car.
The company says it will unveil the Buick Verano today at the Detroit auto show. It’s a small car based on the Chevrolet Cruze that GM says is designed to compete against the Audi A3 and Volvo S40 in the entry-level luxury market.
GM engineers say they went to great lengths to make the car different from the Cruze, enhancing its handling and ride with a European suspension.
