And to inspire your sense of style, Cascada now adds two new convertible top colors
and more exterior color choices and introduces a stunning new Carrageen Metallic
exterior color exclusive to Sport Touring.

It takes just 17 seconds for Cascada’s convertible top to lower. As
the convertible top automatically retracts, the rear deck lid opens
rearward, and the top folds and stows under a hard tonneau cover
behind the rear seats, giving Cascada a pure open-air aesthetic.
The top can be lowered when driving up to 31 mph.
Want the top up? It’s easy to see why, with two new top colors —
Malbec and Sweet Mocha — available on the Premium model.
And it takes just 19 seconds to raise the top, which can also be
done while driving up to 31 mph.
Cascada was designed for your storage needs, too. With the top up,
trunk space is 13.4 cubic feet.1 With the top down, it’s 9.8 cubic feet.1

The electrohydraulic mechanism for the roof has been cycle-tested 15,000 times —
the equivalent of operating the top four times a day for 10 years. That’s a lot of fresh air.

Designed from the outset as a true four-passenger convertible,
Cascada offers spacious seating. Your rear-seat passengers will find the second-row Easy Entry
System especially helpful. Simply start to flip the front seatback forward, and the rest happens
automatically. The seat moves up to make room, then returns to its original position
when the seatback is moved rearward.

Refined materials, inviting textures, premium features and
intuitive technologies: Cascada artfully fuses each of these
elements into an unforgettable driving experience.
Cascada is accommodating no matter the weather. When
you’re soaking up the sun, Cascada’s heat-reflective leatherappointed seating helps keep things cooled down. When
there’s a chill in the air, thermal barriers in Cascada’s top help
the interior stay warm when you’re driving with the top up. Also
keeping you warm are heated driver and front-passenger seats
and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel.
• To make reaching the safety belt easier at shoulder level,
simply close the door, turn the key and the front electronic
safety belt presenters slide forward. Once the safety belt
has been fastened, the presenter automatically returns to
its original position.
• To help keep you organized, Cascada has 13 places where
you can easily and conveniently store your possessions.
• W hen the 50/50 split second-row seats are folded flat, a
pass-through from the trunk creates extra space for luggage
or longer objects.

Cascada’s safety engineering starts with a rigid body structure purpose-built
as a convertible with strategic use of high-strength steel. The windshield pillars use

press-hardened steel in the inner structures, reinforced with high-strength hot-rolled
and cold-bent tubes within the pillars. And available Front and Rear Park Assist helps
take the worry out of pulling into or out of parking spaces. A standard Rear Vision
Camera helps make backing up a breeze.
Up front, a 7-inch diagonal color touch-screen has the Buick Infotainment System1
display that provides on-the-go information, including Navigation2 and text-message
alerts.3 And Siri ® Eyes Free 4 lets you use your voice to control your iPhone.®
