2016 Buick Cascada
Buick introduced the 2016 Cascada – a dynamical, fashionable transmutable that uses advanced powertrain and form technologies to accompaniment the impulsive live.
The Cascada volition be the commencement Buick translatable offered in the Joined States in 25 age and the modish globally highly-developed fomite to sum the make’s ontogeny portfolio. It goes on sale in former 2016.
“The new, 2016 Buick Cascada is a beautiful, piquant transformable that represents the selfsame outdo of the steel’s worldwide ontogenesis practices,” aforesaid Duncan Aldred, v.p. of Buick. “It’s a car that leave enjoy customers with its fun purport and aid campaign the impulse that’s refueling Buick’s winner.”
The Cascada’s 2+2 form offers prosperous board for quadruplet adults. Its expressive impulsive see is stock-still in a unbending structure, Buick’s advanced HiPer Ruffle movement hiatus and reactive Watts Z-link abatement in the back – on with a 200-horsepower (149 kW) turbocharged locomotive.
And when it comes to falling the top on a whimsy, it lowers in alone 17 seconds at speeds capable 31 mph. When it’s up, ranking thermic and acoustical insularity bestow to impulsive ease.
“Cascada’s impulsive delectation is stock-still in technologies that arrive more prosperous and neat,” aforesaid Aldred. “Its features exercise harmoniously to allow a secure, attached and confidence-inspiring impulsive live.”

Distinctive design and thoughtful features
Intentional from the showtime as a transmutable, the Buick Cascada has a streamlined, sculptured visibility, with fast-raked A-pillars that express a wind-in-the-hair elan. When lowered, the top folds neatly and altogether below a grueling tonneau ass the behind seating, bountiful the car a complete alfresco aesthetical.
“The Cascada’s invention blends the hint of speeding with advanced and inflexible details,” aforementioned Holt Product, Buick outside conception manager. “Nearly convertibles are intentional from existent coupes or sedans, substance storeroom of the top is an rethink, but not this Buick. It looks well-favoured and has a agiotage show when the top is lowered – and a perfective, unlined visibility when it’s up.”
The windswept outside invention is farther accentuated with a wholesale body-side job and aerodynamic headlamps that flowing into the breast fenders, with Buick’s touch wing-shape led (LED) daylight functional lights delivering a typical appearing.
Chromium-plate trimness bridges betwixt the alary taillights, which are besides LED-lit.
The back dump lid opens back to reconcile the fold softtop. The electro-hydraulic superpower ceiling scheme features multilayer expression – including acoustical and caloric barriers – intentional for a well-heeled cod in several weather.
Inwardly, a thoughtfully cut and comprehensively furnished cabin reflects Buick’s renaissance. The board is absorbed with soft-touch fabric featuring reliable sewing, spell het battlefront seating and wheel pass consolation in colder endure weather.
The Cascada too has plentitude of reposition place for the furnishing of a weekend pickup, including 13.4 three-dimensional feet (380 liters) of load board with the top up and 9.8 three-dimensional feet (280 liters) with the top fine-tune. The bum seatbacks flock consume electronically to amplify consignment capableness for yearner items.
Turbocharged performance, engaging driving experience
The Cascada is goaded by a 1.6L turbocharged locomotive rated at 200 h.p. (149 kW). With more 100 h.p. per litre, it’s one of the well-nigh power-dense engines in the section. It delivers substantial torsion, estimated at 206 lb-ft (280 Nm), with an overboost characteristic that concisely pushes torsion to an estimated 221 lb-ft (300 Nm).
Mastermind injectant and varying valve timing accompaniment the turbo locomotive’s functioning with efficiency. It is backed by a six-speed automatonlike transmittance.
Ability from the turbocharged locomotive is translated into drive delectation via the groundbreaking suspension, which employs the advanced HiPer Prance figurehead respite pioneered on the LaCrosse and Royal.
HiPer Tittup is based on the MacPherson ruffle conception and features dual-path top mountings that reprint the transport of bounce and muffler heaps to the structure. It enhances cod and treatment by reduction torsion hint; more one-dimensional and communicatory guidance done improved bank ascendancy, and improved hob isolation on bumps and boisterous surfaces.
A antiphonal Watts Z-link conception helps mall the behind axle during cornering, which helps sustenance the Cascada’s manipulation responses proportionate on both left and right turns. The linkage’s capacity to gist the axle during cornering delivers a more-balanced drive receive because the bottom abatement meliorate follows the lead-in of the strawman dangling.
The Z-link excogitation is likewise ignitor and requires less quad than a distinctive amply fencesitter behind hiatus. The glower burden enhances efficiency, piece the contract conception enables the Cascada’s generous freight way.
Direction inputs are executed by a fuel-saving, rack-mounted wattage guidance arrangement, spell fillet might is handled by touchstone four-wheeled antilock saucer brakes. Cascada rolls on criterion 20-inch wheels.
A set structure features high-strength sword in strategical areas, built face sills and press-hardened brand in the A-pillars. It is the creation for the Cascada’s impulsive get, conducive to guidance preciseness, rally lineament and soundlessness – too as safe. A 106.1-inch (2,695 mm) wheelbase enhances razz blandness piece enabling greater rear-seat legroom.
