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 Cascada Debut Happening in Detroit

Buick Cascada debutWe’ve long been hearing rumors about a new convertible, possibly called the Cascada, coming to the Buick lineup. Now, word is the Buick Cascada debut is happening at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week.

Besides the fact that the new convertible has been on its way, we haven’t known much about it, even its official name. Cascada is what the car is called in Europe under the Opel name, but Buick could very well have given it a new name for its US sales. It is expected to maintain much of the same styling of its European cousin—and  we at DeVoe Buick GMC won’t mind that at all.

If you’re making the trek to Detroit for the show, keep in mind the Buick display will be in a new location this year. Instead of sticking with its General Motors counterparts, Buick is cozying up to its luxury rivals like Infiniti and Acura. If you see the new convertible, tell us what you think about it in the comments below.

What do you hope to see or learn from the highly-anticipated Buick Cascada debut?
