About Buick Cascada

Buick has not had a convertible in its repertoire for nearly 25 years, which is why the 2017 Cascada convertible is such a milestone in the company’s comeback story. Introduced last year, the Cascada is actually an Opel bearing the same name in Europe. Buick’s version of course gets more luxury features as well as an enhanced suspension and all those little touches Americans love. The front-drive 2017 Buick Cascada convertible isn’t just a 2-person affair; it’s a roomy 2+2 with a decent-size trunk making it a worthy rival to cars like the BMW 2 Series, Audi A3 and VW Beetle drop-tops. A 200-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged engine powers all three Cascada trims, including the new Sport Touring.

"Great looking, especially with the top down, and driving car. Many guys have stopped to ask me about it. Mine is coconut with beige interior; very unusual and eye catching. Quick top down, all windows are express and it has most of the newest technology. Decent gas mileage and good acceleration."

"I'm 6'4, 350lbs, and I fit in this car. I traded my Nissan Maxima, and this car moves along just fine. Its not 0-60 in under 6 seconds like my last car, but I'm not worried about enough pickup when I merge or pass. I had a Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Sonata with small 4 cyl engines a while back, they were by definition under powered. This car is not. Leave it to motor journalists to give a bad rap to a very fine piece of engineering in the 200hp turbo of the Cascada and a very smooth 6 speed auto. My gas mileage on recommended premium fuel is better than advertised. I'm averaging over 25mpg mixed and the car is barely broken in. I averaged 29.4 on my last 200 mile road trip. The car maybe heavy but it does not handle like it. If anything, it does well on the road because of it. I was pleasantly suprised at how sure footed it was in the last rain storm I was caught in. No fear - not something I could say for how the previous car I had would slip and slide on wet pavement. More than one stranger has commented "beautiful car" passing by. I've previously owned a Mustang Convertible, and a Volvo C70. This car is better than both in the places it matters to me - like trunk space, usable back seat - and a really good soft top. Having suffered through the maintenance problems of a hard top this quality soft is the way to go. Its not a BMW or an Audi, but it costs a lot less, and is not nearly as pretentious. Its very nice. When I test drove it I was immediately impressed with how well it handled, how quiet it was. I look forward to driving it everyday. There are a lot of little features engineered into the car that I continue to stumble across. Things like seat belt presenters, motorized seats that ease entry and exit to the back seat are obvious ones. Small things like lights that illuminate your turns at night as you slow down, or the parking sensors that engage when in lot but not traffic are really nice touches. I do miss keyless drive, and the back window is small (Mirrors are good though - don't let it sway you). My only real complaint is the cup holders up front. They will hold 2 normal drinks - but I like the big 44oz cups. The arm rest partially obstructs so only 1 large drink can be fit at a time. A really minor thing to complain about! Put the top down or up while driving up to 30mph(Another REALLY convenient item) is something I really appreciate having not had the ability in prior convertibles. Top down, stereo can be heard, and it sounds better than most. It is listed as premium - and once I got it EQ and balanced decent I find it nice to listen to - My ipod stays plugged in and ready to provide tunes to cruise too. That is what this car is built to do on a sunny day. Front wheel drive, so I can live with it year round when the snow flys. You can have both in a single car. That is the part I think some of the car enthusiast reviewers have missed. This car does everything above average. Its a well rounded choice - and the design isn't brand new. I take comfort knowing its been around as an Opel, etc, for a few. The kinks are out. What I got is a great car at a reasonable price having all of the features I want. Its practical, and Fun!"

Pros: "Quiet, solid handling, great convertible top"

Cons: "impact harshness at full tire pressures, mileage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"This car is Buick's modern iteration of the 60s boulevard cruiser, but it is much more nimble than those rides. Our car is blue with a black top and the cream interior. Let's address the experts' perceived "negatives" first: The buttons--once you read the manual and learn the systems, you rarely need to touch the touch screen and the buttons become second nature and you can feel them without looking down much. Indeed, once you learn the function of the chrome ring "selector" around the large oval dial in the middle of the stack, life gets much easier. The weight--the car's driving dynamics are very good--stopping, steering, even acceleration, as it is geared to scoot at low speeds. I do not mean to suggest it is a 0-60 burner, but acceleration is more than adequate for any normal driving, like merging onto a freeway. Gas mileage is not good because of the gearing and weight, but that is not a factor to me. The ride impact harshness--Buick recommends 35 lbs for its big, 20 inch tires. I lowered pressures to 30 pounds and the car rides much better, still handles great, and so far no nibbles at the wear arrows. I suspect Buick spec'd the high pressures to get to the 20 mpg mark in the city driving cycle. If you don't want to change from the spec'd pressures, buy some new 18 inch, 45-50 series tires and wheels and forget about the problem. The positives: The car looks great--turns lots of heads. Paint finish is very good. Front seats are super comfortable (we got the cream interior with perforated leather seats, reflective sun coating, and seat heaters) and the back seat is big enough to take two real adults to dinner (Front seats move forward electrically to allow access). Materials seem good, but maybe it could use more soft touch stuff. Stitching on the dash and wheel looks great, and the trim bits are nice. The audio system sounds very good. The roof gives a quiet ride up, and drops/raises with the touch of one button. Totally water-tight in a touchless car wash. Visibility with the top up is typically poor, like many verts. Steering and braking feel are first rate. Drives very nimbly, although it is not intended to be a sports car. Trunk space is fine for a vert, and the car has one-touch pass-through rear seats. Price--At its price point of about 38K, it has no real competition in the "adult" vert range (Camaro and Mustang need not apply). We looked at the BMW 2 series, all of which in inventory were priced in the mid-40s and had a kiddie-only back seat. A 4 year old CPO Mercedes is a nice option, but it is 4 years old and maintenance on them is expensive. The Buick dealer gives 2 years' free maintenance, and the full warranty is 4 years, 50K miles. Summary: If you understand what this car is intended to be, it is a pretty good deal. If you expect a sports car, you will be disappointed. If you want a 4 seat cruiser that does the job well, it is fine. Just lower the tire pressures!"
