Vauxhall has introduced its brand new four-seat Cascada convertible in the United Kingdom. Set to reach showrooms in April, the Cascada has a starting price of 23,995 pounds. Vauxhall says that its new car offers great value in this segment taking into consideration that one of its rivals, the Audi A5 Cabriolet, is available for 31,785 pounds, making it almost 8,000 pounds more expensive than the Cascada. However, the A5 Cabrio does come with a beefier 1.8-liter gasoline engine pumping out 168 hp (170 PS), while the base Cascada makes use of a 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline mill delivering 138 hp (140 PS).
The fully-loaded Vauxhall Cascada fitted with the twin-turbo diesel engine with 192 hp (195 PS) is priced at 29,080 pounds, making it once again cheaper than the top-spec Audi A5 Cabriolet. Aside from these two power units, Opel is selling the new Cascada with a 2.0-liter turbodiesel offering 163 hp (165 PS) and a 1.6-liter turbo gasoline mill delivering 168 hp (170 PS).
Offered in two trim levels, the 2013 Cascada comes as standard with 18-inch alloys, AUX / USB support, LED taillights, while the higher-trim version adds front fog lamps, leather trim, as well as heated steering front seats and steering wheel.
