Buick has been direct on who it’s targeting with the introduction of the 2016 Cascada convertible: the Audi A3 Cabriolet. But, any automaker can claim it’s better than the competition without a followup act.
Buick, however, has produced the details on why convertible lovers may want to shop the tri-sheild over Audi, as it has priced the 2016 Cascada at $33,990. With the base price, the brand has made its value proposition over the Audi crystal clear, even producing the handy infographic you will find below.
Among the many amenities offered in the base 2016 Cascada are:
- Acoustically and thermally insulated electro-hydraulic power roof that lowers in only 17 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph
- Navigation and premium sound system
- Rear vision camera
- Remote start
- Heated front seats
- Heated steering wheel
- Rear park assist
The Cascada Premium model, meanwhile, is priced at $36,990 and adds:
- Forward collision warning
- Lane departure warning
- Front and rear park assist
- Rain-sensing wipers
- Twenty-inch “diamond graphic” wheels
And every 2016 Cascada will receive the 1.6-liter turbocharged LWC I4 engine good for 200 horsepower mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.
