2016 Buick Cascada OVERVIEW

Buick is betting that America is ready for the return of the mainstream convertible, sensibly sized and priced for buyers who want actual transportation, not necessarily a toy or showpiece. Enter the Cascada, a comfortable cruiser that's nearly as practical any other midsize car.

What's New for 2016

The Cascada is an all-new model.

Choosing Your Buick Cascada

It's obvious that one of the goals in the Cascada's development was the ability to carry four adults in comfort. Buick succeeded in that regard and also managed to provide 13.4 cubic feet of trunk space, the same as some family sedans. With the power soft top folded, the trunk shrinks to 9.8 cubic feet, but the standard power-folding rear seat opens up additional cargo-carrying possibilities.

The sole engine for the front-drive Cascada is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower, matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. Beefy 20-inch wheels are also standard.

The Cascada comes in just two trim levels, both of which are thoroughly equipped.


Carries a leather interior with piano black trim, heated power front seats, a heated steering wheel, navigation, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, Buick's IntelliLink infotainment interface, and a full-feature seven-speaker sound system with satellite radio.


Adds front and rear air deflectors and a Driver Confidence package consisting of forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and automatic wipers. You also get extra exterior color choices.

Individual options are limited to alternative no-cost wheel designs and metallic paint ($395).

CarsDirect Tip

Due to its high level of standard equipment, even for a luxury-minded convertible, configuring the Cascada is blessedly simple. Your only real decision will be whether the Premium contents are worth the $3,000 price bump.
