Buick Rear Park Assist

back sensorToday, we are focusing on safety features that exist on many of the new Buick cars in Thunder Bay Ontario.  We know that the Buick Avenir, one of the latest Buick cars on the market in Canada, has numerous safety and driver assistance technologies available.  We ended up listing them in the previous post, but this time around, we want to go into more details regarding a subject that is very important in new Buick cars in Canada.  In fact many of these particular safety features on other Regal Sportback models come standard on Buick Avenir, including Rear Park Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, LED headlamps with auto leveling, cornering lamps and driver side auto-dimming mirrors. Additional active safety technologies, including Adaptive Cruise Control – Advanced, are also available.

Let’s start with rear park assist. The thing with this new Buick car feature in Thunder Bay is, much like many other added feature that has come along in the last decade or so, it is not at all necessary in order to safely own and operate a new car, right?  But wouldn’t it be great if we knew for sure that we could fit nicely in that apparently tight spot? What if you are too uncertain of your own abilities to give that same spot a try? “That’s where active parking features can be your best friend and can tuck you into that dreaded space right in front of that restaurant.”

While most cars can be optioned to include a backup camera and parking sensors, active parking features take it to the next level and this would be something any Buick car owner in Thunder Bay would tell you.  Especially those who opted for the park assist feature.  It’s without complication when it comes to execution, “Simply, press a button and the car searches for a spot large enough to accommodate itself—and alerts you when it locates one. The onboard screen then guides you through your next steps. All you’ll need to do at that point is control the gas, brake, and gearshift while the car steers you into that spot perfectly.”

 

The Avenir Buick Car Trim

changeWriting today, on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealership, we will be discussing the fourth Buick car around the globe to receive the Avenir trim.  “With the addition of the Regal Avenir — the fourth Buick globally to get an Avenir trim in less than a year — the momentum behind Buick’s highest expression of luxury continues to grow.” In the fall of last year, the Buick Enclave Avenir was introduced and began outselling all other Avenir trim levels.  They also made up over 30 percent of total sales in Canada.

According to your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer in Ontario research, “Customers continue to signal that they want more from Buick, and Avenir sales are exceeding our expectations,” said Mark Alger, national marketing manager, Buick in Canada. “Buick customers value the exclusive styling and premium features Avenir provides and we are excited to extend the highest expression of luxury to Regal.”

Some of the people most thrilled over the Avenir trim in the Buick car world are those who traditionally buy Sportback.  “More Regal Sportback buyers are choosing the top trim level than ever, and within the midsize car segment demand is growing for more premium vehicles.”  In fact, the following stats are found online and support the previous statement: Over the previous four years, demand has risen over 80 percent for midsize cars priced from $30,000 to $40,000, reflecting the increasing customer demand for more luxury, convenience and safety without compromising overall value in the new cars that they drive.  We want to spend more time in the posts that follow on behalf of your Buick car dealer in Thunder Bay, discussing new Buick cars in Canada and this new trim level in particular.  Please check back for the next post about the Buick cars in the Avenir trim this year to follow their inevitable success in the Thunder Bay market.
