Convenience is something we all look for in a vehicle and now, Buick has taken this one step further with standard connectivity! The ability to stay connected, while exercising safety and following the rules of the road, has become a desired and sometimes costly feature in a vehicle. Well, we have exciting news to share with you, as Buick makes the announcement that all 2015 models will have standard hands-free connectivity with Apple Siri Eyes Free and text message alerts. Additionally, most 2015 models will also include a built-in Wi-Fi Hotspot, powered by OnStar with 4G LTE, a feature that will be standard next year on all 2016 models.
Using the Buick IntelliLink system, drivers are able to experience the convenience of a text message alert feature with a Bluetooth profile (M.A.P), which reads incoming texts through the vehicle’s speakers. The Siri Eyes Free feature works with iPhone 4s or later and must operate with iOS 6 or later. Whether you want to place a call, find directions, music, or hear and compose text messages, Siri is your go to vehicle companion for connectivity and peace of mind.
Available on the Buick LaCrosse, Verano, Regal and Encore for the 2015 model year, OnStar’s 4G LTE with built in Wi-Fi creates a mobile hub for passengers. The hotspot is accessible whenever the vehicle is on or in accessory mode. Owners are provided with a 3 Month/3GB data trial with the option to purchase additional data plans later.
Over the course of a 6 month period, Buick held the ultimate test drive experience to socially connected individuals in conjunction with Klout. From October 2012 to March of this year, 50 influential Torontonians were provided a Buick Verano to test drive. When the program concluded in March, 2 people were chosen to participate in a video interview where they were asked to share their experience with Klout. At Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC, we already know how fabulous the Verano truly is and are excited for you to see as well. View the videos below and get a sense of what the award winning Buick Verano has to offer! #VeranoDrive
Queenston Chevrolet on Centennial and Queenston on the Mountain will be holding the “Drive For a Cause” event on December 13, 14 and 15, 2012. This event will provide individuals the opportunity to test drive one of our exciting 2013 Chevrolet, Buick or GMC vehicles including; the re-designed Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia as well as the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic, Spark and Buick Verano and make a donation to Hamilton Food Share. This is a fun opportunity to get behind the wheel and donate to our community. For each test drive taken during the 3 day event, Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC will donate $25 to Hamilton Food Share on the behalf of that individual. Our goal for this event is to donate a total of $3000. What is notably great about Hamilton Food Share is that for every $1 donated, $5 worth of food will be generated.
I never fail to receive impressed looks from customers when they lay their eyes on the attractive lines and stunning waterfall grille of the Buick Verano. The nod of approval I get when they discover its impressive gas mileage (46mi/gal hwy, 29mi/gal city) and outstanding warranty (4 year/80,000km New Vehicle Limited Warranty and 5 year/160,000km Powertrain Warranty with 24/7 Roadside assistance) is nothing short of satisfying. However, what customers are most pleased with is the affordable pricing of a well-equipped luxury sedan that starts at $24,190 and its attractive leasing programs.
From the moment my customer’s sink into the Verano’s very comfortable and supportive seats, to the time they push the ignition start button and hear the 2.4L, 4 cylinder 180 Horsepower engine purr like a kitten, they know instinctively that they are in a vehicle class above the rest. The wide-eyed deer caught in the headlights look customers give when they scan the elegant and intuitive controls, lets you know that they are soaking up the delightful infotainment system and built-in navigation.
Now, if you’ve driven the roads by Queenston on The Mountain, you know they are a little rough. That being said, they do help to prove a point – The Buick Verano handles wonderfully! This car drives effortlessly over the bumps and pits without the need for wearing a kidney belt! The road construction buzz of jackhammers and machinery on Rymal Road are almost completely tuned out with components like triple sealed doors and a headliner made with no fewer than 5 layers of acoustic insulation material. By the time we are back at Queenston on the Mountain, I have one very impressed customer on my hands.
Hmm where shall we park this one, in the sold row?
