Buick has officially unveiled the 2016 Buick Cascada, which brings a convertible back to the Buick brand after 25 years. Borrowing its roots from the Europe’s Opel Cascada, the Buick badged convertible is a luxurious four seater that’s powered by a 200-hp turbocharged engine.
“The new, 2016 Buick Cascada is a beautiful, engaging convertible that represents the very best of the brand’s global development practices,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “It’s a car that will delight customers with its fun spirit and help drive the momentum that’s fueling Buick’s success.”
Unlike some other convertibles on the market, the Cascada was designed from the outset as a convertible. The exterior is highlighted by sweeping lines and Buick’s signature LED headlights and its soft top lowers in only 17 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph.
The Cascada is powered by a 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 200 horsepower and 206 lb-ft. of torque, which can be bumped up to 221 lb-ft. with the overboost feature.
The 2016 Buick Cascada is debuting this week at the Detroit Auto Show, but won’t arrive in showrooms until early 2016.
