As is Buick tradition, the 1SV trim exists, but don’t plan on ever seeing one. Its sub-$35,000 MSRP makes good ad copy, though, and as it would cost more to remove features than leave them in place for this base model, its list of standard features is a healthy one.
Included in its interior is perforated leather upholstery, 10-way power and heated front bucket seats with power lumbar control, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, a seven-inch infotainment system with navigation, seven speakers, SiriusXM audio system with USB and auxiliary ports, a rear-view camera, an OnStar 4G LTE wifi hotspot, and Bluetooth connectivity.
Exterior appointments include 20-inch wheels, HID headlights, LED taillights, perimeter entry with push-button start, and rear park assist.
And no Buick would be complete without QuietTuning, which in the Cascada’s case is the use of a variety of sound-absorbing materials, an acoustic-laminated windshield, and special engine tuning, suspension settings, wheels, and tires that work in concert to isolate passengers from engine and road noise.
Options-wise, the only choice Buick gives 1SV buyers is either white paint (for free) or dark blue metallic for $395. Both are paired with a black power-folding fabric top and black interior with Piano Black accents.
