Passenger Protection

2016 Buick Verano interior seats3-point safety belts for larger passengers, and LATCH safety seat management for little ones in the back, are standard and just the beginning of what the Verano has to offer:

  • Airbags The Buick Verano is equipped with a suite of ten airbags including front and seat-mounted side-impact, roof rail mounted, driver and front passenger knee, and outboard rear passenger side-impact airbags.

  • Passenger Sensing The front passenger airbags are equipped with a passenger sensing system that can turn the airbags off when the seat is not in use, or to protect lighter passengers.

  • Child Door Locks Designed to prevent small passengers from accidentally opening the doors, the child safety lock system is standard on all trims.

Accident Prevention

While comprehensive passenger protection features are great for taking care of cabin occupants in the event of a crash, the Verano is equipped with plenty of options to help prevent incidents altogether, including:

  • Forward Collision Alert (FCA) Using camera technology, the optional FCA can detect and alert drivers to potential front-end collisions, providing more time to react.

  • Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) The standard DRL makes the Verano more visible in all weather, reducing the likelihood of accidental collisions.

  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) The available LDW system uses sensors to monitor the area around the car and alerts the driver if they drift from their lane of traffic or attempt to change lanes without signaling.

  • Rear Vision Camera Drivers can opt to add a rearview camera system to help better visualize the area behind the vehicle, enabling the Verano to avoid backing and parking incidents.

  • Rear Park Assist Sensors in the rear of the vehicle provide audible alerts when the Verano is approaching an obstacle, increasing in frequency as the object gets closer.

  • Rear Cross-traffic Alert Radar detects vehicles approaching from either side of the Verano when reverse is engaged and alerts the driver, making accident avoidance simple.

  • Side Blind Zone Alert Radar sensors on either side of the vehicle monitor for obstacles, providing a visual alert in the driver’s side mirror.

  • OnStar Properly equipped, the OnStar system can sense when the airbags have been deployed and alert EMS to the vehicle’s location. Summoning help even if the driver is incapacitated.

Safety Ratings

In recent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing, the Verano scored “Good” in every category for which is was examined – the highest score the organization offers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) was similarly impressed, awarding the Buick with a 5-star overall safety rating.
