The Buick Avista has arrived in the Great White North at the Montreal International Auto Show to show off its beautifully sculpted face. As pretty as it is, it’s likely a reminder to Canadians we won’t see the Avista enter production any time soon.
Vincent Boillot, GM Canada, regional manager for eastern Canada, described the Avista as a game changer amid record sales in the country.
“The Avista is a modern expression of the brand’s heritage of sophisticated performance, communicated with beautiful elegance and offers visitors to the Buick display a hint at the future of Buick design. It is stunning design like this that is bringing new customers to Buick. In 2016 we saw a record number of new customers coming over from our competitors, historic sales numbers and three brand new vehicle launches with LaCrosse, Encore and Envision. As a direct result, Buick sales were up 21 percent right here in Quebec.”
The Avista will be on display at the Montreal International Auto Show for all to gawk at until the show closes on January 29, 2017.
