Opel unveiled the new Cascada, a four-seater convertible that will be arriving at dealers early next year.

The Cascada has many design cues from the Astra and Insignia with a chrome grille, bulging front hood, sculpted doors, and wing-shaped rear lights. Overall measurements for the Cascada are 184.9 inches long and 72.8 inches wide, which makes it a little bit larger than an Audi A5; one of the vehicles the Cascada is said to compete with.

The fabric roof of the Cascada that retracts in 17 seconds and at speeds up to 31 MPH.

Powertrains for the Cascada will include two variations of the 1.4L turbo, a new 1.6L SIDI turbo, and a 2.0 CDTI diesel engine. All engines will come with the choice of a six-speed manual or automatic.

Opel says the Cascada will come packed luxury and tech features. Features will include an adaptive forward lighting system,ergonomic heated front seats, and Opel Eye, a system that utilizes a front camera that recognize traffic signs. Opel Eye will also incorporate lane departure warning and forward collision alert.

Nice future Buick I see there. GM would be stupid not to offer this as the Verano convertible IMHO...

I personally hope they keep the Cascada name for the NA market if it makes the jump over here.
