Vauxhall Cascada - Prices & Specification
Vauxhall has released all pricing and specification details for their new full-size convertible: the Vauxhall Cascada.
Vauxhall's all-new, full-size convertible marks the company's launch into a fourth new sector, in the space of a year, following on from the debuts of its Ampera, Mokka and ADAM models.
The full-size, four-seat, fabric-roof Cascada convertible is longer than its rival: the Audi A5 convertible, measuring nearly 4.7 metres in length.
The Cascada also represents the first full-sized convertible that has been designed, engineered and manufactured by Vauxhall since the 1930s.
Based on its price, which we will come to later, the Cascada's key competitors include Volkswagen's Eos and Golf Cabriolet models, as well as the popular BMW 1 Series Convertible and the Audi A3 Cabriolet.
Vauxhall's Chairman and Managing Director, Duncan Aldred, commented: 'The all-new Cascada is an outstanding full-size, four seat convertible with premium qualities and technologies at an affordable, mainstream price.'
Aldred further added: 'It's an exciting time for Vauxhall with Cascada launching the brand in to its fourth new sector in a year, following Ampera, Mokka and ADAM. Cascada is set to change people's perception of Vauxhall once again.
'The full-sized convertible sector tends only to be occupied by very high-priced cars from premium manufacturers. With Cascada, we're offering customers high levels of equipment, technology and luxury but at an affordable price.'
The all-new Vauxhall Cascada comes in two trim levels: the entry level 'SE' models and the top of the range 'Elite' specification. Engine sizes vary across the range, from 1.4 litre petrol engine models to top-spec 2.0 litre Bi-Turbo engines.
CO2 emission levels also vary across the Cascada range, with the more 'eco-friendly' models emitting 138g/km of CO2, whereas the least 'green' motors emitting a higher 168g/km.
In the 'SE' specified Cascada models, the vehicles come equipped with eighteen inch alloy wheels, a sports chassis, aux-in/USB and LED tail lamps, as well as a leather steering wheel, four airbags and Electronic Stability Programme.
Opting for the range-topping 'Elite' model brings extra pieces of kit to the mix, including leather trim, front fog lamps and heated front seats and steering wheel.
Furthermore, all 'Elite' models come equipped with dual zone climate control, rain sensitive wipers and automatic lighting, amongst others.
On the road (OTR) prices for the all-new Vauxhall Cascada start at £23,995 for the 'SE' version with the smallest engine, and go up to £29,080 for the 'Elite' model with a 2.0 litre 'Bi-Turbo' engine.
