We’re fairly certain we know the answer to this question from you, but here it goes.
The Buick Avista is a follow-up surprise after last year’s splash found in the Buick Avenir. The Avista concept rolled onto the stage wearing a deep blurple hue, and housing decidedly sports car proportions.
It’s a 2+2 with rear-wheel drive, and a proper sports car width, a description that really shouldn’t be followed by “that’s a Buick.” But it is. Up front, a conceptual take on the Buick grille is present, but the current winged chrome strip remains from the latest Buick-production design.
In the rear, the style lines come to a lovely integrated rear lip and a rounded rear-end. Overall, we quite like the design as a whole. It has presence.
But, here’s where we will divert. Although the Avista is a looker, our staff, and collected media, has noted so many different design influences, the Avista begins to look a tad, dare we say it, generic.
The list includes, Jaguar F-Type, Hyundai Genesis, Aston Martin DB9, Opel Monza, Nissan 350Z and more. Granted, each of those vehicles are handsome in their own ways, but nothing really stands out as a Buick trademark here.
But, we digress. This is certainly a handsome vehicle, and the fact it’s a Buick excites us even more.
So, it’s your turn to sound off. Are you digging the Avista? Or, is this design falling short? Let us know in our poll, and certainly talk to us in the comment section below.
