The Japanese manufacturer came up with the idea of the new 2016 Acura Precision by establishing the main theme referred to as “quantum continuum”. This is experienced in the smooth transition of structures and materials flowing from the interior towards the exterior. The vehicle is a prototype for future productions by the Honda Company. Its styling was pushed to include new dimensions. The creators of the model combined sheer surfaces with organic and muscular sculpting. This is in an attempt to achieve a power communicating ultra low, long dash to axle ratio. The new Precision stands merely at 4 feet and 3 inches. This is a bold step by the company, which has failed to produce such vehicles in the past that excite.
Interior and Exterior Design, Features
The new Acura Precision 2016 sedan has several interior features that are of note. Those that standout, in particular, include the wooden (exotic wood), hand-made audio speaker grilles, the double layered instrument panel and the cantilevered surfaces. Another exciting feature is the digital human interface that scans every person that goes into the sedan. It also chooses customized functions and features, such as audio and maps, as well as tailored vehicle performance preferences. The sports steering wheel is compact and speed-inspired. While the driver is seated behind it, he can see an ultra-wide curved and thin center display screen, cantilevered center stack, head-up display and a floating center gauge.
The exterior features also hold a lot of promise. The hardtop is, from the side, emphasized by the lack of B-pillars, Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer tires and the swelling arches at the back wheel, which provide a frame for the 5-spoke machined 22-inch wheels. The creators of the sedan achieved a floating taillight motif. This is made possible by the surface behind the light being scalloped out in order to create a look that appears strong and lightweight at the same time.
Engine and Mileage HP, Performance
The EPA fuel economy rating for the 2016 Acura Precision sedan is 25/36/29 for the city, highway and combined. It is recommended to load premium unleaded 91 octane fuel. The throttle control is a drive-by-wire throttle system. It has a 16- valve train and ULEV-2 rating of CARB emissions.
2016 Acura Precision Price and Release Date
The 2016 Acura Precision concept debuted at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. The Acura team maintains that this concept will shape all future Acura vehicles henceforth.
Eventually, the concept of this vehicle symbolizes a bold step by a brand that has been on the balance for irrelevance for too long. The new Acura Precision will hopefully follow the Acura/ Honda tradition of coming out as a minimally changed and genuine production machine following the show circuit debut. The car does seem to have a lot of interesting features but it needs to develop the chassis and powertrain of its brand so as to stand with competitors like the 2016 Audi A7, 2016 BMW 6- series Gran Coupe and the 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS. This is a tough call for Acura.
