Detroit 2016: The Acura concept you have to see

By ,

Acura chose the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit to introduce the new Precision Concept for the first time. Developed by the Acura Design Studio in California to express the brand’s DNA of "Precision Crafted Performance," it looks very promising to say the least.

The intersection of modern, sheer surfaces and muscular, organic sculpting, combined with an ultra-low and wide stance, creates an aggressive-looking design that’s simultaneously full of elegance. The new Diamond Pentagon grille and Jewel Constellation LED headlights (composed of organically arranged fractal elements) are big reasons why. This car definitely won’t go unnoticed.

Inside the boldly styled cockpit, a double-layered instrument panel meets with a compact, race-inspired sport steering wheel, while the high-contrast front seat surfaces and ultra-thin "floating" rear seats evoke the look of modern lounge furniture. A floating centre gauge, a driver's head-up display, a cantilevered centre stack, and an ultra-wide, thin and curved centre display screen are also part of the mix.

Time will tell how many of these innovations and design elements find their way from the Precision Concept to future Acura production models.
