The Precision concept bears almost no resemblance to Acura's current line-up of inconspicuous hatchbacks and SUVs, suggesting that the car maker wants to change its image drastically. The firm will be gauging the public’s reaction to the new model, with initial responses appearing to be positive.
At first, the car’s exterior appears to take the form of a two-door coupé, but look closer and you’ll see four passenger doors and a hatched bootlid. There’s also a lengthy bonnet that’s headed by a wide-mouthed grille, while at the back wide shoulders add to the car's presence. Overall, the look is similar to that of the well-received Mazda Shinari concept that was unveiled back in 2010.
Acura has used what it calls “quantum continuum” as a design theme, illustrated by the seamless transition of materials from the exterior to interior and the absence of a B-pillar, which helps to keep the car’s horizontal lines unbroken.
