The compact American convertible has existed for three years. The company appreciates it, but still decided to remove the model from sales.

The German brand Opel announced that it will complete the production of Cascada, Adam and Karl models in October last year. The end for these three cars was due to the brand’s plan to focus on more popular segments, within which the European model range of the German brand will be substantially updated. As you already understood, Opel and Buick are related – previously they both belonged to the American concern GM, so many of the models are almost the same.

 After the announcement of the plans of the guys from Opel, it was suggested that the Buick Cascada convertible can also be completely removed from production. And so, the inevitable happened – the press service of GM said that this particular cabriolet leaves the assembly lines of the factories. It should happen after the end of its current life cycle.

  Buick officials confirmed this news. “The Cascada cabriolet perfectly played its role in the model range of the brand, surpassing many other premium cabriolets,” the report said. “Nevertheless, the model has reached the end of its originally planned life cycle, 2019 will be the last proposed model year for this car. Our dealers were notified in advance, and many of them will have a supply of convertibles by the end of this year. ”

Buick Cascada was introduced in the United States in 2015 and went on sale in January 2016. Buick sold 17,000 units of the model in 2016, the figure dropped to 4,136 units in 2017 – a decrease of 26%.
