I cant even really compare the two. The name Buick itself has been embedded in the back of my head as a "Old Man's Car" No matter what it is from them. The looks of the Verano is so plain it cant compare with the lines of the CLA. You can obviously see different designer's personality between the two.
Buick is trying hard to get out of that old reputation they had. It seems like it's still sticks to them though. No matter what they do but I see progress though this verano will be the one to starting changing things.
