Buick presented officially the 2016 Cascada, before it makes its official debut at the North American International Auto Show in some days.
The Cascada is the first convertible model of Buick after 25 years, even if it is essentially a rebadged version of the of Opel/Vauxhall Cascada. The beautiful 2 + 2 convertible, has LED daytime running lights and a roof that opens in 17 seconds when the vehicle is moving at 50 km/h or less.
The interior features high quality materials, heated seats and IntelliLink entertainment and information system combined with a 7 inch touch screen. The 2016 Cascada also has an electrical system that makes access to safety belts easier and a system that automatically moves the front seats to assist rear passengers to sit.
It is equipped with a 1.6 liter turbocharged, four-cylinder engine that delivers 200 hp and 280 Nm of torque (300 with overboost), which is combined exclusively with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The suspension consists of the HiPer Strut assembly of GM for the front, which improves ride quality and reduces the intensity of the “torque steer”, and a Watts Z-link for the rear arrangement.
