Shop for a convertible nowadays and you'll find yourself choosing between muscle cars like the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, compacts like the Mini Cooper and Volkswagen Beetle, and luxury cars like the Audi A3 and BMW 2 Series. You might then wonder: Whatever happened to the reasonably priced convertible with four usable seats? Well, put simply, automakers stopped making them. But now one automaker, Buick, is jumping back in with its all-new 2016 Cascada.
The push of a button transforms the comfortably quiet Cascada into an open-air convertible, even when driving up to 31 mph. So you can make the most of your Cascada experience on sunny days, rainy days and every day in between. The top automatically stows itself under a hard tonneau cover.
Like Buick's four-door Regal, the Cascada has been plucked directly from Opel, General Motors' European division. In order to naturalize the Cascada, Buick outfitted it with suspension components that provide a softer, quieter ride. But the company also says that thanks to the Cascada's stiff body structure, the engineers were able to introduce a more compliant ride without ruining the handling. Take the Cascada through some curves and you'll find its well-mannered European heritage indeed remains largely intact.
Every convertible requires some compromises, but the Cascada requests fewer than most. The rear seat, though not generous with stretch-out space, can accommodate two smaller passengers. The trunk is a little bigger than normal, too, and it's augmented by fold-down rear seatbacks with a handy pass-through for larger cargo. Additional thoughtful details include an electric seatbelt presenters that bring the front shoulder belts into easy reach when the door is closed. - Edmunds.com
