Though we don’t have a crystal ball by which to predict the future, we do know that compact semi-luxury coupes aren’t exactly the best-selling vehicles in the world. And that brings us to the Buick Cascada: the compact soft-top convertible is actually a very nice car, but the actual market take-rate for such vehicles is quite small. Now, what if the Cascada were available as a hardtop coupe, as we rendered above?
Such a vehicle would be more appealing to potential car buyers for two primary reasons:
- It would likely be less expensive, and therefore more attainable, than the convertible
- It would have significantly more mass-market appeal; in other words, more consumers are interested in a coupe than in a convertible. Sure, a sedan would have even more mass-market appeal than a Cascada coupe, but that’s what the Buick Verano/Excelle GT is, albeit with a different name.
When we think about it like that, we start to wonder why Opel-Buick didn’t make a Cascada coupe in the first place.
So, what do you think: Cascada coupe — yay or nay? Talk to us in the comments.
