Over the last week, the Buick Cascada has been the topic of some hot discussion at GM Authority. So in the spirit of having more baseline information about the upcoming Buick compact drop-top, we’re providing the following preliminary specifications of the vehicle.
The following specs for the 2016 Buick Cascada are, in fact, preliminary. For instance, we took the curb weight from the Euro-spec Opel Cascada. Even so, we don’t see them changing much when the Delta-platformed vehicle launches later this year. And if the specs do change, we’ll let you know about it.
