Vauxhall Cascada drop-top pricing announced
25 March 2013
Vauxhall has announced prices for its new Cascada convertible, with the range starting from £23,995 and rising to £29,080.
On sale in April, the two-door four-seater drop-top offers 140hp 1.4-litre and 170hp 1.6-litre petrol units plus 165hp and 195hp 2.0-litre diesel engines. These latter iterations with stop/start will be the most fleet-friendly with 138g/km and 139g/km of CO2 respectively and official combined figures of 54.3mpg.
Two trims, SE and Elite, are offered with the entry-level option, getting 18-inch alloys, sports chassis, LED tail lamps and aux-in USB as standard. The Elite includes leather trim, heated front seats and steering wheel, and front fog lamps.
"The Cascada is an outstanding full-size, four-seat convertible with premium qualities and technologies at an affordable, mainstream price," said UK boss Duncan Aldred. "It's an exciting time for Vauxhall with the Cascada launching the brand into its fourth new sector in a year, following the Ampera, Mokka and Adam."
Meanwhile, the carmaker has announced a new 1.6-litre diesel engine with 10% less fuel consumption and Euro6-compliancy, which will replace existing 1.7-litre engines and some lower-powered versions of its 2.0-litre range. The engine will go into the revised Insignia range coming this year, as well as the Zafira Tourer and Astra.
