That's what the brand needs, a car without the practicality of everyday life, not too playful, but nevertheless increase pleasure, with a word, promote the image. Since much fits, e.g. the relatively large appearance compared to a more moderate use of space, this optically enhance the car above the class of compact convertibles without it to establish also in terms of price in the middle class.

Fits to the soft top, which can be up to 50 km/h closed in 17 seconds. Since it's enough to visit shortly the rest area in case of an imminent rain, without stopping. But who likes to drive the highway with an open convertible? Rather, the country road is then more suitable the, at times with fairly low traffic allows cruising.

But the Cascada sufficient protects the occupants up to higher speeds even in total openness. There even the wind deflector is not required. Disturbing is then only the engine, if you have chosen the most powerful diesel variant. However, since convertibles are rarely be used as great miles-eater, maybe even suffices the newly developed, small petrol direct injection. Then some money is left, despite discerning driving performance.

Development opportunities, however, are still in the Cascada. How can it be that the Insignia has more wheelbase and nevertheless 1.3 meters less turning circle? Or the two-door Astra is more than 20 cm shorter with the same wheelbase and yet the luggage compartment so much shrinks with the roof open. Cars with similar wheelbase also have more space in the back seats.

This of course does not diminish the main purpose of the car. At summer weather, you can greet friends at bistro tables standing outside from the still moving car. And should you later run indoors because of a rain shower, to press a button on the remote control is enough and the roof closes rather spectacular. 07/13               Top of page               Index
