It does no harm to drop the top, especially in some weather conditions. The Buick Cascada is a perfect example of how that is done. But it is also saddening to learn that 2019, is the last year for the Cascada to get down to dealers.

Buick confirmed to one tabloid stating that “the Cascada has played its role in the portfolio perfectly, outselling many other premium convertibles while bringing in [six of every 10] buyers from outside GM,” noting further that, “it has reached the end of its originally-planned lifecycle and 2019 will be the last model year offered. Dealers have been notified and many will have stock through the rest of this year.”

The Buick Cascada has had several lives in a way. In the US, it was the Opel Cascada, Opel Cabrion in Spain, the Holden in Australia and Newzealand and Vauxhall in the U.K.

Riding on a 1.6-liter turbo four engines producing 200hp, this small car provided a good alternative to premium convertibles. Its front-wheel drive that drives on a six-speed automatic is the standard option available.

It is able to sprint from 0-60 mph in just 8.3 seconds, which is relatively lower than what most of its contemporary competitors can do but good enough. It will take 17 seconds to drop the soft top while driving at 31 mph.
