Buick will attend this year Detroit Motor Show with a new concept, called Avenir. It was design to remember us of all Buick great models and features a design language that we will probably see on future models.
 
Exterior
 
With expressive proportions, a long hood, wheels-at-the-corners stance and a sloping, rear deck, the car pays homage to historical models, such as the Riviera.
 
To be appealing for contemporary people, the Avenir concept also features full light-emitting diode (LED) exterior lighting and twenty-one-inch wheels. The car stretches 204.5 inches (5,195 mm) in length and 76 inches (1,931 mm) in width. The Avenir’s four-place interior is "inspired by nature and sea waves receding on a beach".
 
Interior
 
The motif featured on the seats and carried through in other trim components – even the carpet. In fact, a patterned insert for the carpet carries the motif in silk and bamboo. Personal connectivity extends to rear-seat passengers, where USB ports and video screens allow occupants to plug-in to their favorite media.
 
Buick’s user experience designers are also pushing the Avenir’s technologies for home integration, which would allow accessing home security cameras or the capability of turning on outside lights and closing a garage door that was inadvertently left open.
 
Drivetrain
 
The new Buick Avenit uses a next-generation direct-injected V6 engine with fuel-saving Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and stop/start technology, 9-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, driver-selectable suspension damping and twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system.
