Buick Avant Concept gets unveiled

General Motors's site, The Lab, responsible for showing off the new innovations of the firm, unveiled the concept Buick Avant, small city vehicle, comprising the premium features a customer would want from a Buick. The America-based builder says this concept incorporates also the perfect qualities of a small cars: 'efficiency…guilt-free pleasure…aesthetic presence on a smaller scale'.

The body style, of a coupe, brings enough space for 4 passengers, having the forward sliding doors, presenting a futuristic design, style. A glass roof - panoramic view is allowing the driver to fully control its transparency option.

Andrew Smith said on The Lab site 'In this project, we studied potential markets around the world, trying to understand how luxury is changing, and the aspirations of consumers and how they use vehicles in the context of their everyday lives. What we found out is this — how people use their cars, where they drive, what they need and expect from premium products, and how these things are all changing in different parts of the world'.

Is just a project, obviously, so if you see it in production or in the concept form is some unlikely scenario still.

He added 'Buick is an interesting brand. It has a long history and relevance in the U.S. and China. Its position in the world’s two largest automotive markets gives it a unique global presence among other premium vehicle marques. For designers around the GM world, Buick is an emotional brand. We are interested in the possibilities for Buick'.
