Opel has taken the wraps off the 2013 Opel Cascada convertible, which will be released in early 2013. The Opel Cascada is a four-seater convertible with a soft top, which Opel describes as a return an older tradition of prestigious and rare midsize, four-seat soft-top convertibles from the fifties and sixties.
Thomas Sedran, Deputy Chairman of Adam Opel Management Board: “The midsize cabriolet segment is only occupied by very high-priced cars from premium manufacturers. With the Cascada, Opel offers all the typical features and premium qualities of a midsize convertible, but at an affordable price. The Cascada rounds off Opel’s product offensive: in 2012 and 2013, we’re enhancing our portfolio and entering all-new segments, with the electric Ampera, the small SUV Mokka, the fashionable, urban ADAM, and now this midsize convertible.”
The Opel Cascada is based on the Opel Astra. The Cascada provides a sharp driving experience thanks to its super-rigid body, HiPerStrut front suspension and FlexRide adaptive damping system. Its driver and passengers can enjoy the open-air feeling thanks to the premium soft top that can be opened at the touch of a button in 17 seconds while driving at speeds of up to 31 mph.
Under the hood buyers can choose between a 1.4L or 1.6L gasoline engine and a 2.0L diesel. Opel is promising more powerful versions of both gasoline and diesel engines at a later stage.
