While the U.S. awaits its 2016 Buick Cascada, the car is busy gearing up for its Australian launch as the 2015 Holden Cascada. The launch coincides with the availability of the 2015 Holden Astra lineup, and will provide a four-seat convertible for the Holden portfolio, something the brand hasn’t seen since Tigra convertible was offered.
The 2015 Cascada will be available in two configurations upon its arrival to Aussie shores on May 4th, both powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission offered. Both feature the latest in sound-proofing technology, with the triple-layered acoustic power hood able to be retracted in just 17 seconds whilst on the move at speeds of up to 23 mph.
The Holden Cascada Launch Edition will be a limited run of 50 units, celebrating the return of the convertible to the Holden portfolio of vehicles.
Inside, the launch edition offers ventilated front seats along with a premium Napa leather interior. The 2015 Cascada Launch Editions also receive a unique leather-wrapped sport steering wheel. Outside, 20-inch wheels are applied to differentiate the car, and Bi-Xenon headlamps with daytime running lights are outfitted.
If you miss out on the 2015 Cascada Launch Edition, the standard Cascada will suit your convertible needs just as well. The exterior design is complimented by standard 18-inch alloy wheels, and inside, the latest in creature comforts may be had such as the Holden MyLink system, heated front seats, navigation and rear-view parking camera.
Production of the 2015 Holden Cascada began months prior at Opel’s Russelsheim facility. The 2015 Cascada joins the 2015 Astra as the latest influx of Holden launches, which will include 24 major vehicle launches and 36 new powertrains in the next five years.
