Buick Decides To Complete Cascada Convertible

October 8, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

GM Authority published a couple of minutes ago that the production of the unpopular convertible Buick Cascada (aka Opel Cabrio) has actually ended, and the last copy was released in the second quarter of this year.

A year ago, the German company Opel announced the cessation of mass production of the mid-size Cascada cabriolet – the model was supposed to disappear from the company’s price lists in 2019. After some time, the American brand Buick made a similar statement. On the eve of October 2019, at the disposal of the foreign edition of GM Authority was information that the production of the unpopular convertible was actually over, and the last copy was released in the second quarter of this year.

The same car was sold under the Holden brand in Australia and Vauxhall in the United Kingdom. I must say that the mid-size Cascada convertible has never been very popular. Demand for the model gradually decreased over the years.

Despite the fact that car sales were far from the proper level, Buick representatives mentioned that the Cascada convertible attracted new customers for the brand. Interestingly, the model is still listed on the official website of the company, and even it can be configured as desired in a special section.

¬†¬†Originally introduced under the Opel brand at the end of 2012, the Cascada model was manufactured at the company’s factory in Gliwice, Poland. The car was presented as a direct successor to the Astra TwinTop convertible. The model used some elements from Astra and Insignia. One of the features is the replacement of a hard roof with a fabric one to reduce the overall weight of the car and the complexity of the roof closing / opening structure.
