The Acura Precision Concept is a striking design intended to show
off the future of Acura sedans. Acura's styling has come in for some
deserved critisism over the last few years. First they were way to
dull looking in general to be taken seriously as a luxury marque,
then they decided that putting a strange buck-toothed grille on the
front might help. It didn't.
But the Acura Precision is a welcome step into new territory for the
company. It looks sporty, futuristic and really unique in a world
where much of the competition looks virtually identical. The concept
was developed by the Acura Design Studio in California to express
the brand's new theme of "Precision Crafted Performance."
It has a great profile too, the wide arches and sloping roofline do
a great job of disguising the rear set of doors. It looks more like
an elongated sports car than a practical 4-door sedan.
The concept sits on massive 22-inch wheels, which are tucked neatly
under the powerful arches. The LED headlights and taillights are intended
to mimic the appearance of jewels.
On the inside, the Acura Precision concept features cantilevered surfaces
combined with striking tones, expressive surfacing and modern detailing.
Stand-out details include a double-layered instrument panel, ultra-thin
"floating" rear seats, and the hand-crafted audio speaker
grilles made of exotic wood.
The driver is met with a a compact, race-inspired, sports steering
wheel with paddle shifters and Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) controls
as well as a head-up display and curved center display screen..
