Buick Avista Concept

The enviable Buick Avista nabbed the title of North American Concept Vehicle of the Year at the North American Concept Vehicle Awards ceremony in late July 2016. The ceremony took place in Plymouth, Michigan, and celebrated achievements in vehicle engineering and design. With its sleek contours and twin-turbo engine, the Avista is a marvel among new GM vehicles – as well as others in the sport coupe segment. Read on to find out more about the award-winning Buick Avista!

After being revealed in January 2016, the Buick Avista was an instant hit. Its 400-hp twin-turbo V6 engine is an amazing addition to the Buick lineup. The concept car is a combination of power and style. Its sporty look and great features make it an attractive option for younger buyers. Buick’s dependability and commitment to luxury are evident in the Avista’s powertrain, as well as its design and amenities.

The Avista’s interior boasts a modern floating center console that extends to the rear seats. Its leather trim and aluminum details add an extra touch of glamour. The concept car’s exterior is equally luxurious with sleek lines and titanium and carbon fiber accents. The Avista’s look and features are impressive, so it’s no surprise that the concept car took home the coveted award.

Additionally, the model features Buick’s new winged tri-shield grille and check-shape headlamp. These attributes can be found on the redesigned 2017 LaCrosse sedan, available starting August 2016. In addition to the Avista and LaCrosse, the Cascada convertible, mid-size Regal sedan, and small Verano sedan complete Buick’s lineup of compact cars.

After a period of declining sales, Buick’s SUV sales rose to 6% to offset the decrease to only 2%. The impressive Avista and other new Buick models may help increase sales even further and become an asset to the brand.
