The U.S. News has announced their 2013 Best Cars for the Money Awards. The objective of these awards is to highlight cars that both look good while remaining wallet-friendly. The awards combine the average price paid and five-year total cost of ownership data from TrueCar.com with the U.S. News Best Car ranking data. Based on the car's performance, interior features and interior comfort from the automotive press, and combined with reliability data from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

2013 Buick Verano
Coming in at number 3 out of 11 Upscale Small Cars is the 2013 Buick Verano. The score was determined based on an analysis of 35 published reviews and test drives, as well as U.S. News analysis of reliability and safety data.

The 2013 model year comes with an optional turbocharged engine, critics say, making the 2013 Buick Verano a powerful small sedan with a comfortable, quiet cabin and a plethora of standard features.
For the 2012 year, Buick Verano was debuted with a 180-horsepower, four-cylinder engine and a standard automatic transmission. For the year 2013, Buick has replaced this with the Buick Verano Turbo, a 250-horsepower four-cylinder turbocharged engine. It comes as a standard automatic transmission, with the option for a six-speed manual. The turbocharged engine is said to be strong enough to compete with competitors, as is Buick Verano's fuel economy with 21 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.

With a combination of ownership costs and positive reviews for a car in its class, the 2013 Buick Verano was voted the 2013 Best Upscale Small Car for the Money. In addition to this award, it was also voted the 2013 Best Upscale Small Car for Families due to its family-friendly size and features.

The attractive design and quality materials used on the Buick Verano are what impressed the automotive press, along with the quiet cabin and plenty of trunk space. Features include a rearview camera, touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Bluetooth and a USB port.

The 2013 Buick Verano is offered in trim levels of base, Convenience, Leather and Verano turbo. In addition, feature upgrades are also available including navigation, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

2013 Buick Regal

The 2013 Buick Regal outranked a number of upscale feature cars with its composed handling, quality interior and plenty of upscale standard features.

The 2013 Buick Regal comes standard with eAssist technology, a four-cylinder engine and small electric motor that help the vehicle achieve 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. Also standard is a six-speed automatic transmission, said to be quiet and refined by the Regal's reviewers. Options for more power are available with the Regal Turbo and GS trims, both featuring turbocharged four-cylinder engines.
