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.

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. 08 Cascada Sport Touring with Dark Ef fects Package shown in Jet Black with Red stitching Want the boldest expression of Cascada style?
