The celebrations are on the way as 2013 Buick Verano has grabbed five star overall safety rating after its first crash test by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The car bagged 5 stars in the front and the rear crash test and a 4 out of 5 star in the rolling test.
The result is quite similar with one of its closest competitor Acura ILX. Acura ILX also received an overall rating of 5 stars but it grabbed only 4 out of 5 stars in the frontal and rollover tests. General Motors has already put a lot of safety devices in Verano like ABS, Stabili Trak, 10 standard airbags, panic brake system and a collapsible pedal system. In the NHTSA tests they found that Verano’s chances of a rollover is about 11.3 percent and in case the rollover occurs General Motors has also provided for head curtain airbags that will be inflated to reduce any injury. The Verano’s 5 star rating does stand in the standard with the Buick lineup of safety ratings both from Insurance Institute of Highway Safety and NHTSA.
