Acura Precision Concept a design template for future models (pictures)
Acura unveiled its new concept, called the Acura Precision Concept, here at the Detroit auto show.
This concept shows off a new direction for design, which Acura calls "Alluring Modern Edge."
According to designer Dave Marek, this concept will shape all future Acura models.
It takes some of the cues seen on the new NSX and applies them to a sedan-bodied car.
Rather than a typical sedan, this concept shows off more stylistic flourishes.
Acura calls this grille a "diamond pentagon."
The wheels are specifically called out as oversized by Acura, an element that could find its way into a future model.
Instead of the "Jewel Eye" LED headlights of current Acura models, these are called "Jewel Constellation."
The back of the cab tapers in, while the back glass includes contoured shapes.
"Floating" appears frequently in Acura's terminology for this concept, such as these floating taillights.
Acura describes the rear seating area as a lounge, with floating seats.
A new concept for Acura's dashboard electronics involves a touchpad below the start button.
Acura says the steering wheel is "race-inspired."
