Vauxhall Cascada Buyers Guide

As one of the company’s newest cars in the market, the Cascada pushes new boundaries for Vauxhall. With this car, Vauxhall is slowly peeling off its shady reliability history by introducing a convertible with great security features, one of the Cascada’s more powerful points. Loyal fans of Vauxhall will not be disappointed with this car as it delivers more advantages than disadvantages. Still, for a new car in the segment, Vauxhall needs to refine the Cascada to finally emerge as a top choice.

Pros

The Vauxhall Cascada comes equipped with a number of engine options, great for individuals who have their specific preferences for power and speed. Petrol choices include a 1.4 turbocharged manual with 138bhp and a 1.6 litre ECOTEC turbo automatic with 168bhp. The lone diesel variant is a 2 litre CDTi with 163bhp in manual or automatic gearboxes, which can take the Cascada from zero to 60mph in around 9 seconds. It’s noisy when idle, but it can perform smoothly and flexibly on the road. Accuracy of steering also makes it appealing.

Comfort is impressive with the Cascada, especially at higher trim levels. Reflective seats mean that they won’t trap too much heat with the roof down. The front seats are height-adjustable. The front and back seats can be adjusted for more support, and the interior feels very sophisticated. Boot space is ample and deep at 380-litres with the roof up. This can be increased to 750 when the rear seats are folded through a split and electric release system, making the Cascada a practical choice.

Buyers will be impressed with the Cascada’s stylish interior, helpful controls, metal finish, and plush cabin. The car’s security features are also remarkable: airbags, stability control, rollover protection system, remote central locking and alarm are standard items in all trims. Standard equipment is also generous. The Elite trim has climate control, windbreak, an infotainment screen and other technologies on top of the SE trim standard equipment.

Cons

Handling might be tough because of the Cascada’s stiff and heavy steering. The Cascada works best in open roads, otherwise, it can be too uncomfortable and weighty. While the cabin is generally free of wind and tyre noise, ambient sounds are better dampened with an insulated roof. Although carrying capacity is great, passengers in the back seat may want more head and legroom. Visibility is problematic with the car: the windscreen pillars and small rear screen can greatly obstruct the driver’s view.

One of the biggest snags in owning a Cascada is its initial price compared to other cabriolet. Although the car is well-quipped even at the standard level, the price for its base equipment is higher than entry level cars in the segment with better equipment.

Flexible choices in engine, technology and the car’s highly appealing design all make the Vauxhall Cascada an attractive choice. Cascada does well when driven in open roads and at a relaxed manner. Otherwise, it can prove too heavy and cramped for most cabriolet enthusiasts. Price is also a factor buyers should consider, although it may not pose a huge problem.
