The 2016 Buick Cascada has a $33,990 starting price in United States and will go on sale at the beginning of next year. It was developed from the ground up to be a convertible and represents Buick’s first US-spec open-top to come out in the last 25 years. This is obviously nothing more than a rebadged Opel Cascada and it’s also available in Australia as a Holden. In U.S. specification, the model is equipped as standard with LED daytime running lights, remote start, seven-inch touchscreen, dual-zone climate control system and heated front seats. It also has leather upholstery, 20-inch bi-color wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel along with front and rear power outlets.
The fabric roof is acoustically and thermally insulated and needs about 17 seconds to be lowered at speeds that can’t exceed 50 km/h (31 mph). The more expensive Premium trim begins at $36,990 and adds automatic headlights, front and rear park assist, automatic wipers, different 20-inch wheels, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning and front & rear air deflectors.
Underneath the hood, the 2016 Buick Cascada is powered by a 4-cylinder 1.6-liter turbo with 200 bhp and 206 lb-ft (overboost has 221 lb-ft) delivered to the front axle exclusively through a six-speed automatic gearbox.
