Vauxhall dealers will no longer sell a convertible as the Cascada exits the market. Autocar reported last Wednesday that the Cascada was killed off months ago, but order books remained open as the final inventory cleared out.
The report claimed the Opel Cascada will live on in other European markets for the time being. GM Authority reached out to Buick for comment on North America’s Cascada model and a spokesperson told us the brand’s plans have not changed. Buick has consistently moved a few hundred Casacada convertibles each month in the United States. The spokesperson added over half of Cascada buyers are new to Buick, and the model remains a positive force for generating interest and raising perception of the Buick brand.
The Vauxhall Cascada moved just 220 units in 2017 and sold 850 units at its peak in the first year after its introduction. The Cascada remained one of the only C-segment convertibles left on sale in Europe as SUVs and crossovers rise in popularity.
Vauxhall has also announced it will no longer sell the Zafira, GTC and Adam Rocks models due to similarly poor sales results.
