The Acura Precision Concept had debuted at the North American International Auto Show with the purpose of demonstrating a more bold and distinctive future for Acura design. The Precision Concept was developed at the Acura Design Studio in California in an aid to express the manufacturer’s belief in “Precision Crafted Performance”.
This new concept is not designed to be a future production preview, however, but rather a “vision car” emphasising high-contast detailing and sharp edges to accent
uate the Concept’s focus on performance. “The Acura Precision Concept is more than simply a concept vehicle, it is a design study model that literally will shape the direction of all future Acura products around our Precision Crafted Performance DNA”, said global creative director, Dave Marek.
A key design theme from Honda’s American premium arm has been dubbed “quantum continuum”, which is essentially outside design elements seamlessly morphing into the interior. Further notable design elements include the Jewel Constellation LED headlights, 22-inch wheels and the diamond pentagon grille.
The interior really does look like something pulled from the future with the double-layered instrument panel, hand crafted exotic woods and ‘floating’ rear seats are all highly contemporary design features which we would hope Acura do bring in to future models.
Also included in the human-machine interface (HMI), which, with use of the curved centre screen and cantilevered floating touchpad, scans each occupant upon entry and selects personalised features such as audio, maps and vehicle performance settings.
