The one thing that continues to mystify people, especially those who have been hoping for Buick to rise up from the muck, is why GM decided not to green-light the production model of the Buick Avista concept.
It received many accolades when it was first unveiled, and still continues to win awards. Actually, it was only a couple of days ago that it was garlanded with another top honor.
The Avista won acclaim as the 2016 Concept Car of the Year and the Most Significant Concept Vehicle of the Year at the 2016 North American Concept Vehicle Awards. So it should be a no-brainer for it to be a mass market model, right?
There could be an explanation to why GM chose not to go ahead with its production, and fans might just want to blame the designers of the Chevrolet Camaro SS. Some reports suggest that they weren’t too happy with how the Avista overshadowed the V8-powered pony with its looks.
It could be due to internal politics that the Avista didn’t happen. At this point that’s probably the only rational explanation for it to be shelved. What do you think – is that an explanation that makes sense?
