Buick Avista – Design in Interior:

There is no doubt that Buick will base its new car on GM Alpha platform. The automaker came clear on this at the expo. The concept is inspired by the Cadillac ATS-V, Chevrolet Camaro, and the 1954 Buick Wildcat II. So we are waiting to see a few features of these models in the Avista. The wheelbase of the production model will measure 110.7 inches in length. Buick Avista will get the usual “waterfall” grille with its flowing vertical slats. But minor changes will be available; a chainmail mesh and a single horizontal bar will be added on the grille. Another feature we should not miss on the front side is the tri-shield logo of the company. Lights will stand out with their wing shape.

The Buick Avista sports coupe will come with nothing short of a luxurious and comfortable interior. We are looking forward to leather upholstered seats and steering wheel. The entire cabin will be decorated by carbon fiber and aluminum accents. Wait to see a coupe with 2+2 seating arrangement and capable of accommodating 4 people. Apart from quality materials and comfortable seating space, we are gearing up to welcome an InterlliLink infotainment system with a wide touchscreen and other technological amusements. An expansive floating center console will be another highlight in the interior of Buick Avista. There will also be many touch controls and a number of connectivity features in the cabin.

Concerned about the safety of Buick Avista? Well, the automaker is keen on providing great peace of mind to the driver and passengers. Many safety features such as magnetic ride control, lane assist and airbags will be offered.

Buick Avista – Price, Release Date and Competitions:

For those who would wish to own a brand new sports coupe in the future, we can recommend the Avista to them. The new Buick car will cost $28,000, which is a fair price for a sports coupe. But you should expect well-equipped models to cost more. As for the release date, the first bunch will hit the market in the last months of 2016.

According to car enthusiasts, the Avista will compete with a wide variety of cars, including big brands like Chevy, Chrysler, Ram, Jeep and Dodge.
