Buick staged the world premiere of its Avista concept at the 2016 North American International Auto Show and our team was at place to grab live photos of the study.
Probably previewing a future production model, the Avista is sending us Opel Monza concept vibes with its slender headlights and hexagonal grille. The front end also features a carbon fiber spoiler and a lower bumper grille with mesh inserts. A look at the side profile reveals muscular fenders, short rear overhang, and large 20-inch, 5-twin-spoke aluminum wheels.
Once inside the cabin, you will find a modernistic design highlighted by a massive digital instrument cluster and a second display on the center console, providing audio system and climate controls. There’s room for four passengers, sitting on four individual seats. Other features include a panoramic glass roof, noise cancellation system, and ionic air purifiers with an aromatherapy function.
Detailed technical information is not available at this point but Buick says power comes from a 3.0-liter V6 biturbo petrol engine, pushing out 400 horsepower. Connected to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, this unit features a start/stop system and cylinder deactivation technology.
