Buick Avista Concept Wins ‘Best Future Concept’ Award in Detroit

Buick LogoThe Buick Avista Concept model recently won the Detroit News Reader’s Choice award for the Best Future Concept due to its innovative engineering and styling. This acclaimed model also just won the EyesOn Design Award for Design Excellence, making the Avista one of the most anticipated models of the season.

What makes the Avista so popular? According to Buick, the Avista is a sports model with features like the new Electronic Precision Shift technology, touch-pad door handles, a 3.0-liter Twin Turbo V6, and more. Plus, this model has a sleek two-door design with sharp contours and unforgettable LED headlights.

“This award is special because this is the Motor City and it was decided by people who reside here – alongside many of the men and women who poured their hearts and souls into this concept,” said Nesbitt. “Because Avista represents the future essence of Buick design, an award decided by consumers is a great vote of confidence.”

The award was given to the Avista design team after roughly 100 judges made the final vote. Not only does the Avista represent the future of Buick styling, but this model also anticipates the future of mobility. We can’t wait to see it shake up the market once it arrives.

Buick Avenir Lighting Feat of Illuminating Ingenuity

Not only are light emitting diodes (also known as LEDs) an energy-efficient way to radiate light energy, they are a statement—which is more than apparent in the form and function headlights found in the Buick Avenir concept and also, perhaps, future Buick offerings.

The LED headlights featured on the Avenir concept are composed of a triad of jewel-like LED assemblies formed to imitate the wave-like pattern located inside the concept’s cabin. When the turn signal is on, the LEDs in the headlights and taillights brighten successively giving the “impression of waves upon a shoreline.”

“Technology will always be a major contributing factor to future Buick lighting designs as it allows for more flexibility with the aesthetics and performance of the light,” said Martin Davis, design manager for the brand’s exterior lighting. “Thanks to LEDs, we are now at the point where designers can break free of many of the constrictions previously placed on lighting design.”

We at Devoe Buick GMC can’t wait to see forthcoming illumination technologies that Buick is sure to imbue in its future lineup, especially if it emulates that of the Buick Avenir lighting!
