Great, did you take it all in? Awesome. Now, let’s get to business.
The Buick Avista concept was well received at the 2016 North American International Auto Show. Very well received. In fact, it has the brand considering a production Avista to eventually replace the 2016 Buick Cascada as a “halo” vehicle for the brand.
If Buick is keen on a convertible being its hero vehicle, why not drop the top from the Avista and really give consumers something to challenge what they know of as a Buick? After all, that seems to be the market strategy here.
It’s also totally feasible, too. We can point fingers to the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro convertible as the first Alpha-based drop top. Cadillac is supposedly working on its own, too.
A production Buick Avista wouldn’t be a sales star, but a vehicle to paint a fresh face for a brand determined to shake off its old, stereotyped image. And cutting the roof off of a twin-turbocharged, rear-wheel drive coupe could be just what the doctor ordered.
