Before we start the 2017 Buick Avista review though, please remember that all the data included here are all taken from the information stated when the coupe was shown on the auto show, because there are more than a year gap until today, there is possible that there are some changes made. This kind of things happen often with concept cars, and it will most likely happen to this 2017 Buick Avista as well, especially because this car look very expensive and probably cost a lot of money to be manufactured as a mass produced vehicle. But looking at the fact that they named this coupe as the 2017 model, and then it gave hope that this car will actually be put on their production list soon.

2017 Buick Avista Exterior
One cannot speak about this new Buick Avista coupe without talking about its beautiful styling, the 2017 Buick Avista exterior design looks like those modern futuristic luxury coupe you can only find in video game. As said before, the car has 2 doors, and the one shown on the auto show for the first time has a beautiful superior blue finish, and it looks like they are going to adopt the pillar less coupe for this car. The roof is made using the sloping fastback design, and there is not much details made to its body. Although the design is very simple without many decorations and stuffs, it look very elegant, it resembles something that comes from a more luxurious vehicle brand like the Mercedes, but the front side also looks pretty aggressive and gives you an impression similar to what a modern Mustang can give.
The reason why it looks so aggressive looking at the front is because of the grille and headlights combination. The grille is quite wide, it is also shaped to look like a roaring beast, it is also equipped with the Buick logo at the upper milled part, and a horizontal line crossing the grille at the middle of the logo. The side of the grille and the Buick logo are finished with silver chrome, a contrast to the overall black color of the grille which in return makes it even better to look at. The headlights are located at the upper sides of the big grille, and they are shaped like angry eyes with it slanted design, we have to state that the headlights shape are pretty unique. And below the headlights are the fog lights, they are actually placed right below the headlights, and to complete the front side, the air intake that looks very futuristic.
The side of the car looks simple as well, but what makes it look interesting is the window design. it has small windows, but because this coupe is following the no pillar design, it really changed the whole style of the car, suddenly the window looks very wide and big, it look like something from a futuristic sedan. The rear side is also as revolutionary as the front in terms of design, with the taillights adopting a weird and unusual design to match with the L shaped headlights. The car itself is pretty lean and low, so it does looks pretty sporty for most people.
2017 Buick Avista Interior
We have talked much about the exterior, but how about the 2017 Buick Avista interior design? Do not worry; the interior cabin of this revolutionary concept coupe is also as gorgeous as the exterior. Once again, they do not put a lot of details or decorations, it is very simple, yet the shape that they are taking are weird and unique, the cabin is really simple, but once you take a look at how they design the dashboard, you will get what we mean. This is something that you cannot find on the current generation vehicles, even on the most luxurious one, everything here are designed to look as futuristic as possible while keeping the elegance and style in check.
The material used for the cabin is also pretty high in class, so they do not only look good, but they also feel very comfortable when you touch. Not only the material, the features and technologies that you can find on the cabin are also already on par with any basic features you can get from a modern car. It got a display screen to control most features on the car; it also got advanced noise cancelation system, aromatherapy, and many more.
2017 Buick Avista Performance
They have put a lot of efforts on this coupe’s design, so it is time to check whether or not they put the same amount of effort to this car performance level. To find out the answer, let us check the 2017 Buick Avista engine shown on the last year auto show, the Buick Avista is shown using the 3.0L V6 engine, but this engine is not an ordinary V6 engine, as this car is said to have about 400 horsepower. The standard transmission system for this coupe is noted to be the advanced 8 speed automatic transmission system. All in all, this new Buick model is able to reach a maximum speed of 155 mph; meanwhile the acceleration speed is also very good, with the car able to reach 60 mph in 4 seconds flat.
2017 Buick Avista Conclusion
The 2017 Buick Avista release date and price is still the main problem with this review, as this model comes out as a concept car and there is no official announcement made since then. It was shown again in January 2017, but there is no news about the release date, so if this car is really going to be released soon, then late 2017 look like the most logical one.
