The Avista Concept is a design study that reignites the debate. Four seats, a grand tourer of the flagship, powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0 V6 engine with 400 hp of power. The eight-speed automatic gearbox delivers power to the rear wheels. The Magnetic Ride suspension provides a comfortable ride, or a dynamic grip, depending on what you're driving.
To keep fuel consumption reasonable it has selective cylinder deactivation and Stop&Start.
In terms of design it may be a bit old-fashioned, but notice that the door handles are hidden in the bodywork, and there is no B-pillar as such. Although a prototype can take such licenses, there are already series production cars that integrate the B-pillar inside the doors, like the Opel Meriva or the Ford B-MAX.
It sits flat on the ground with 20-inch tyres and a track width of almost 1.6 metres on both axles. The wheelbase is long, 2.81 meters, for greater comfort of the occupants of the rear seats. This car does not necessarily anticipate a series production model.
The dashboard seeks maximum cleanliness in its lines, with an air vent at each end, and another in the center. Conventional buttons are not to be found. The upper part merges the driver's screen (which serves as the instrument panel) and the upper central one.
The center console continues as a large touchscreen that displays information from different sources, and of course, the latest in connectivity and infotainment, the Intellilink of the house. Interior comfort measures include air purifier, noise cancellation through the stereo speakers, and even aromatherapy. In terms of visibility, it has large glazed surfaces and a false ceiling. Licenses that Concepts like him can afford.
