Opel Cascada Spotted in Colorado Mountains, Buick Cascada Around the Corner?
Apr 11, 2014 - 1:02 PM - by Esrever
GM has not kept it a secret that it is planning on further aligning its Opel and Buick brands. Meanwhile, up in the Colorado mountains, an Opel Cascada was spotted driving around - no test gear or camouflage at all. So when someone says there is a fire, and you see smoke, there is likely a fire, and by 'fire' I mean a Buick Cascada.

Given that the Opel Cascada already looks pretty close to the Buick Regal and the Buick Verano, it wouldn't be a leap to think that the Opel Cascada could come to America as the Buick Regal Cabriolet, or the Buick Verano Cabriolet. here is the Buick Verano and Regal so you can see the similarities.

Plenty of automakers like to test vehicles in Colorado with its high altitude and consequential low air pressure. With no camouflage at all though its hard to say if this is forecasting the Cascada's coming to America, or if some other type of testing is going on.

Can you foresee any changes or problems that bringing the Cascada to America could create for the Opel Cascada?

Vauxhall Cascada gets Lackluster First Drive Review
Feb 13, 2014 - 9:06 AM - by Escape Route
All the reviews that I read about the Vauxhall Cascada agree that the vehicle looks great, but I have been disappointed that other aspects of the car don't get the same high praise.

The first complaint that I have been reading about is that the Cascada is difficult to see out of. With the hood up your vision is limited. The rear screen is very shallow, and the rear lights are up so high off the ground that they aren't very useful for reversing. On top of that, the rear pillar creates a massive blind spot, which makes the Cascada a terribly difficult car to reverse. Although the rear parking sensors do help out.

When it comes to performance I also haven't heard the best things. The 170 hp 1.-6-litre turbocharged petrol engine is not particularly quick. It also isn't particularly fuel efficient, despite Vauxhall's claim that it gets 39.2 mpg.

Another draw back is the lack of trunk space because of the space that is required to hold the hood.

All of this is simply from my reading online, but it is enough to give me serious second thoughts about the Cascada. Are these worries founded, or is it just reviewers jobs to find problems to write about even if they aren't that bad?

It's great to have a nice looking car, but not at the expense of practicality and being fun to drive.
