2017 Buick Avista Design
Although the 2017 Avista is designed just as a design studio, GM was probably thinking of bringing the Avista or a similar car into production, according to a Buick representative. When it occurs, it is likely to keep the platform and engine out of the picture. A new report noted that GM is reviewing the Avista for Production as a new halo vehicle for Buick and cites the big fanfare that is generated by its launch at the Detroit Motor Show.
The exterior finish in blue upper, has a coupé deep design, fluid, without pillars with an inclined roof line of the fastback. The front fascia must have been inspired by the 1951 Buick Wildcat II concept car. On the inside, the seats are upholstered in gray leather, complete with carbon fiber-aluminum accents to give the driver’s compartment a sportier look. The dashboard features a large touch screen of a “future version” of the IntelliLink Buick information and entertainment system. The doors and interior parts were printed in 3D.
