History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Opel Cascada page on 13 September 2016, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Opel Cascada (Spanish for "waterfall") is a Mid-size convertible engineered and manufactured by the German automaker Opel since 2013. It is also marketed as the Opel Cabrio in Spain, Vauxhall Cascada in the United Kingdom, the Holden Cascada in Australia and New Zealand, and the Buick Cascada in the United States and China.

The Opel Cascada was unveiled in Late 2012 for a 2013 European launch. At launch Opel offered the Cascada with a two choices of 4 cylinder petrol, a 1.4L or 1.6L engine. These were offered with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. A 2.0L Diesel was also available at launch. Opel touted that the body of the Cascada was 43% stiffer then that of the previous generation Astra TwinTop and works in tandem with the HiPer Strut suspension layout.

In January 2015, the Buick Cascada was unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in January 2015. It went on sale in January 2016 and is the brand's first factory convertible since the 1991 Buick Reatta and first 2-door model since the 1999 Buick Riviera. The Cascada was available in two trims, the 1SV and Premium. Additionally, the Buick is only available with the 1.6L inline 4.

In April 2015, the Holden Cascada went on sale and is Holden's most recent convertible since the Astra TwinTop was discontinued in 2009. At launch the Cascada was offered with only the 1.6L petrol engine and a six-speed automatic. Two trim levels were available which are base and launch edition. The Launch edition offered 20-inch alloys, nappa leather sport seats, ventilated front seats, adaptive bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights.
