At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last month, Buick unveiled its beautiful Avista concept. This futuristic car won the EyesOn Design Award for Design Excellence – Concept Car at the show.
This was the second year in a row that Buick won this award. It won it last year for its Avenir concept. This award recognized the best production and concept vehicle designs to make their debut at the show.
“Design has always played a large role in Buick’s rich history and recent success,” said Bryan Nesbitt, executive director, Buick Global Design, in a statement. He goes on to state that, “The Avista concept has been a labor of love by the team of designers, sculptors, engineers and talented craftspeople, including our UAW partners, who created this beautiful statement of Buick design. Avista represents the future essence of Buick design.”
The Avista has a sleek, powerful shape that pays tribute to Buick’s racing heritage. Its performance-oriented driving experience is further emphasized by carbon fiber and aluminum accents throughout the design.
