Opel/Vauxhall teases Cascada mid-size convertibleWed, 05 Sep 2012 00:00:00 -0700
Opel/Vauxhall has given us a sneak peek of its new mid-size convertible, the Cascanda, which effectively replaces the Astra Twin Top.
The Cascanda features a full-size fabric roof that can be opened or closed with one button up to speeds of 30mph and is the latest model to shun a folding hardtop in favor of the lighter and more practical soft option.
The company claims this is its first D-segment cabrio for more than 70 years but, unlike them, we haven't forgotten the Cavialier Convertible of the 1980s (see pic). Perhaps GM would prefer if we had.
The Cascada will join the Adam on the Opel stand at the upcoming Paris motor show.
