At a base price of $18,299 as tested) with a 3 year/50,000 basic warranty and a 7 year/100,000 powertrain warranty, the 2006 Verona wants to compete in the class as Camry and Accord. in South Korea and sold in the world as the Daewoo Magnus, the had better have a rabbit up its 20 mpg city/27 highway.

First Bland and generic

The name isn’t the only that’s Italian about the Italdesign in Turin drew up the which isn’t half-bad, if familiar. The whole rear of the car is of the previous-generation Camry. from the trunk lid to the big triangular tail

The lines of the rest of the car are generic and as well, with the exception of the which features two creased that create a wedge-shaped along the center line a little like the Hyundai a fellow Korean vehicle. The are protected against parking lot by an ugly body-color strip with shiny plastic The 15#148; steel wheels small in the wheel wells, and the covers don’t help

Fit and finish are fine, that’s all just fine. The paint thin, lacking the luster you find on better paint My test car wore a coat of Silver, a dull metallic without any sparkle or shine.

It reflected the car’s personality: in every respect, like a knockoff of the real thing. ever going to stop you and say car!#148; when you’re a Verona.

If the exterior of the Verona is unexceptional, the of positively awful. I have to with the horrible fuzzy cloth seats, which Cars guide Aaron aptly described as mouse Not only are the seats ugly, also generated a static each and every time I got out of the I got a big shock when I went to the door — it became therapy.

I was so afraid of getting that I didn’t even to drive the Verona.

The mouse fur covers the driver and passenger armrests. Though my test car had than 5,000 miles on the the fur on the driver’s door armrest was showing signs of wearing Ugly and fragile, a bad combination.

Dash materials are cheap and to the touch. My personal bugaboo, wood, is a prominent feature, and look like any wood in nature. At least the gauges are and well placed.

Audio on the steering wheel give to Power,#148; Mode#148; and Seek,#148; but not or mute. The steering wheel for tilt but doesn’t telescope.

On the Six cylinders that can’t do the of four

My my expectations suitably I headed for the highway. Under the Suzuki has crammed a 2.5 liter 6 cylinder engine that’s at 155 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. Most of the competitors use either 4 cylinder with variable valve that match the Suzuki’s with less displacement and efficiency, or V6s with significantly power.

The Verona’s engine, which is by Suzuki, not Daewoo, is mated to a automatic transmission that is the model of clunkiness. It thunks gear to gear, especially cold. To add to the misery, you have to down on the gear selector to go drive to reverse or park, a unnecessary so-called safety that just complicates

The Verona’s steering feel is — it feels like you are pointing the car down the road than steering it. This car handle so much as it floats. I can compare the Verona with my venerable 1991 Infiniti G20 130,000 miles on the odometer.

The G20 feels tighter, turns accelerates harder and has better feel than the brand new That’s less praise for the G20 it is damning the Verona.
