2017 Buick Cascada Review
Those in the market for a small, sporty convertible with room for four passengers should consider the Buick Cascada. This small luxury car is one of the few in its class to boast more than two seats, making it the ideal choice for a couple who loves to hit the road or even a family with older children. For 2017, Buick has introduced a new fully loaded Sport Touring trim with stainless steel sport pedals and an upgraded ergonomic sport steering wheel, joining the base level and Premium trims from the 2016 model year.
The 2017 Cascada’s small engine manages to provide both power and fuel economy, equipped with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine making 200 horsepower and paired with a standard six-speed automatic transmission. Drivers can expect to get an EPA-estimated 20 city/27 highway miles per gallon. This convertible offers a smooth ride with composed, sophisticated handling. The Cascada is also the only car in this class to come equipped with Quiet Tuning technology, which provides a hushed ride even with the top down; those who opt for the Premium and Sport Touring trims will also enjoy front and rear air deflectors for added comfort.
Drivers who choose the base model of the 2017 Buick Cascada will be rewarded with comfortable, quality leather seats; both the driver and passenger seat are heated as well as power-adjustable. In addition to being one of the only four-seater convertibles in this class, the Cascada has a backseat that’s roomier than average among its competitors, as well as 13.4 cubic feet of trunk space and remote-operated 60/40 split rear seats for storing larger items. The 2017 Cascada comes standard with a 7″ touchscreen for Buick’s proprietary infotainment system. A rearview camera and rear parking assistance are also provided on all trims.
Safety and Security
The 2017 Buick Cascada boasts exceptional crash test performance, earning a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration. The Premium and Sport models incorporate high-end driver assistance technology such as lane departure warning, front parking sensors, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Not only is your family protected, but your investment is as well; the Cascada comes with a four-year/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty.
