Buick LaCrosse GL Concept's designers set out to capture the essence of Buick luxury for they looked to the fine cuisine, heirloom objects and enriching experiences the brand's customers savor. Buick LaCrosse GL Concept display at the 2011 L.A. Auto Show.
Buick LaCrosse GL Concept Exterior
Buick LaCrosse GL Concept's color and trim designers worked from a palette of cabernet red, dark cocoa brown and caramel chocochino. They took inspiration from the burnished metal of antique jewelry, ombré patina on vintage guitars and flocked lining of keepsake boxes. For GL's French-stitched premium leather seats, the designers looked to the understated elegance of classic club chairs and contours of windswept sand dunes. And their use of smooth suede for the headliner is designed to invite one's touch like a favorite pair of gloves.
Buick LaCrosse GL Concept's cabernet red exterior paint is complemented by brushed and tinted chrome accents on the grille, door handles and deck lid, as well as around the windows, taillights and headlights. Machine-face, satin-finish 20-inch rims fill the wheel wells for a firmly planted appearance.
Buick LaCrosse GL Concept Interior
Open the Buick LaCrosse GL Concept's doors and backlit Buick-emblazoned sill plates invite one to enter like illuminated welcome mats. Take a seat and one is ensconced in luxury, enveloped by flowing sculptural surfaces finished in a rich blend of warm-hued materials. They offer soft-touch refinement and surprise-and-delight details. The seats, doors and instrument panel surfaces are finished in contrasting dark cocoa brown and caramel chocochino leather. The seat cushions' pillowed surfaces evoke windswept sand dunes, and the ice-blue French stitching along their seams harmonize with Buick's signature ambient lighting.
Overhead, one finds a rich chocochino suede headliner - a material and usage rarely seen in anything but the most luxurious automotive interiors. Buick LaCrosse GL Conceptbutter-soft material also accents the steering wheel, inviting one's touch. Attention to detail also is evident underfoot, where leather-surged and accent-stitched floor mats offer further refinement. Likewise, the storage compartments are flocked like the interior of a jewel box.
