http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com - Buick revealed its Cascada convertible, an elegant four-seater that will go on sale in the USA in the first quarter of 2016. This marks another example of the two brands’ successful collaboration, which already includes the jointly-developed Buick Encore and Opel Mokka, the Buick Verano and Opel Astra notchback as well as the Buick Regal The post What Would Buick Look Like Without Opel?
http://www.carbuzz.com - Here’s the first thing you need to know about the Buick Cascada: it’s a rebadged Euro-spec Opel Cascada. That’s it, but that’s not a bad thing, though it’s no game-changer. Not even close. Powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 200 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque, power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.
http://www.kbb.com - As Buick’s first convertible offering in nearly 25 years, the 2017 Cascada convertible marks a major milestone in the company’s comeback story. Introduced last year, the Cascada is actually an Opel bearing the same name. Buick’s version of course gets more luxury features as well as an enhanced suspension and those little touches sun-loving Americans can’t live without.
http://gmauthority.com - Opel will have a handful of new vehicles to talk about during the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Those include the 2017 Opel Ampera-e, Opel Cascada Supreme and Opel Karl Rocks. Maybe even the 2017 Opel Insignia, which was supposedly gearing up for Paris, but we’ve seen no other sign of life otherwise.

http://www.carscoops.com - Set to premiere in Paris at the end of the month, the Opel Cascada Supreme is a new special edition version of the German soft-top.
http://www.bizjournals.com - Meet the 2016 Buick Cascada. I know what you’re thinking, “That’s not a Buick.” Yes, it is. It’s part of the line’s revamped offerings that have been prospering abroad and only recently gaining traction in North America. Sold in Europe as the Opel Cascada, the convertible hits a number of highs and lows that cannot be easily brushed aside.
http://www.philly.com - If there ever was a quintessential down-home domestic brand, it was Buick. The marque was - and I hope this cliché won't make you wince - as American as apple pie. Today, not so much. The Buick Envision, a midsize crossover that goes on sale shortly, is not American at all. It's built in a GM plant in China. And the recently introduced Buick Cascada convertible I just tested is about as American as an apple pierogi. It is assembled in Poland by GM's European subsidiary, Opel, with an engine built in Hungary and a transmission manufactured in Mexico.
http://www.thedrive.com - I love a good convertible. Then there’s the Buick Cascada. General Motors’ rebadged Opel convertible wants you to feel the breeze, but it’s more a breath of stale air. Buick is actually doing a decent job of reinventing itself, especially with the Encore, the nation’s surprise best-seller among subcompact crossovers. But the Cascada’s “good-enough” approach recalls the bad-old, pre-bankruptcy General Motors. It’s a stopgap and a showroom filler, a car GM brought over from its European Opel division because it could, not because of any pressing need – corporate, consumer or otherwise.
http://www.freep.com - The Cascada compact 2+2 convertible exemplifies a lot of what’s going right for Buick. It’s essentially a twin of a car General Motors’ European Opel brand began selling in 2013. Buick is a major beneficiary of the globalization of GM’s engineering and vehicle-development processes. Opel developed the Cascada using GM’s global architecture, which also underpins the closely related Opel Astra and Buick Verano compacts.
