Here's Why Buick Doesn't Care Whether Anyone Buys A Cascada


Yes, really.

Here’s the first thing you need to know about the Buick Cascada: it’s a rebadged Euro-spec Opel Cascada. That’s it, but that’s not a bad thing, though it’s no game-changer. Not even close. Powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 200 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque, power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. Performance? Well, you’ll get from 0-60 mph in 8.4 seconds. Point being, this is not a real sports car.

What it is, however, is a fun and stylish convertible that’ll make Volkswagen Eos owners happy now their car has been axed. Our 2017 Cascada tester is the Premium trim, which includes features such as forward collision warning, lane departure warning and upgraded wheels.

Oh, and the Graystone Metallic exterior paint costs an extra $395. All told, this Cascada came to $37,385. Expensive? Yes, but here’s the honest truth: Buick doesn’t really care too much about Cascada sales. The real goal is to use this spunky convertible to expand the brand. Special thanks to Woodland Motors for letting us film the car.
