Buick seems to have turned the Verano into one of the safest cars on the market right now, since the car has been named among the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Picks for 2012.
This can be accredited to the ten standard airbags, rollover sensor, ESP and even the OnStar system, which features the Automatic Crash Response System that uses GPS and cellular phone technology to automatically call for help in the event of a crash that deploys the air bags.

“GM set a goal that every new product would be designed to meet or exceed the third-party metrics that IIHS and others use to communicate crash worthiness to consumers,” said Gay Kent, GM executive director of Vehicle Safety. “We are now seeing the results from that commitment.”

“Safety is a top priority in Buick’s product renaissance as evidenced by earning these accolades from IIHS on every model,” Kent said. “Our customers can have confidence in the safety performance of every Buick for sale today.”
