What You Will Like

There aren't many options these days when it comes to compact premium convertibles, but Buick is looking to change that. The Cascada is a lovely, stylish rag top that comes loaded with all the stuff buyers want that would cost $3,500 more to get in the Audi A3 cabriolet. The Cascada outshines the BMW 228i convertible as well, which can't match it for standard features. With room for four adults to cruise top down in comfort, and with more trunk space than either the Mustang or Camaro convertible, the Cascada is a fascinating -- and potentially popular proposition from Buick.

Loading Comparison...


All-new for 2016, Buick Cascada is a soft-top convertible with clean looks and European manners. It’s considered a 2+2, but its back seats are roomier than those of most convertibles and sufficiently comfortable for four adults out for dinner.

Cascada is the first convertible Buick has sold in America in 25 years. Intended as an entry-level luxury convertible, the Buick Cascada is most closely comparable to the Audi A3 Cabriolet and Volkswagen Eos. Also on the list of potential competitors are sportier four-seat convertibles like the Ford Mustang and BMW 2 Series.

While the Cascada is a different kind of Buick, it’s still very much a car for grown-ups. You get legitimate room for four passengers, a usable trunk, and all the interior comforts that appeal to adults. The result is a car that’s capable of attracting buyers who’ve never considered a Buick before as well as those driving one now.

Convertibles aren’t known for their practicality, but the Cascada comes with very few concessions. You don’t need to live where it’s always warm and sunny to justify buying one. It’s a perfectly enjoyable companion even when you’re just commuting in the rain.

A turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine powers the Buick Cascada rated at 200 horsepower and an impressive 207 foot-pounds of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission delivers power to the front wheels. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 20/27 mpg City/Highway.

The suspension and body structure were designed to deliver a precise, refined driving experience with responsive steering and driver feedback, and it appears Buick put considerable effort into this.

Model Lineup

Buick Cascada ($33,065) is outfitted with leather upholstery, navigation, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, satellite radio, 20-inch wheels, rearview camera, rear parking sensors.

Cascada Premium ($36,065) adds forward collision alert, lane departure warning, automatic wipers, front and rear window reflectors, and other features.


The Cascada is the product of GM’s design studios in Europe, so it looks only vaguely related to other Buick models. The overall shape is purposeful and trim, with just enough tailoring to hold your interest. A subtle hood bulge and LED running lights add a dose of bravado to the front. The chrome window sill trim extends around the entire passenger compartment for a finished look when the top is down. We like the look of the big 20-inch wheels, which stop just short of overkill.


The Cascada looks and feel more like a proper Buick on the inside. You’ll find nicely textured surfaces, bright accents, and classy piano-black trim. The atmosphere would be truly elegant if not for the sea of buttons covering the center dash and console.

Front passengers are treated to plenty of legroom and supportive seats that keep you comfortable through hours of travel. Power-operated arms bring the seatbelts forward so you don’t have to grope behind you. Flip a switch and the top goes down in just 17 seconds. Another switch lowers all windows at once. In case of a sudden downpour, the top operates at speeds up to 31 mph.

The backseat is large enough to accommodate two adults on short trips, which is more than can be said of some convertibles that claim to hold four passengers. A sensor prevents the front seats from being backed into rear passengers’ knees, a thoughtful feature we haven’t seen before.

The trunk offers 13.4 cubic feet of space with the top up, about the same as a compact sedan. In drop-top mode, you’re looking at 9.8 cubic feet, which isn’t anyone’s idea of spacious, but at least the rear seat folds down to make a nice storage shelf.

Driving Impressions

Technically a compact, the Cascada feels substantial because it is. At 3,979 pounds, it weighs more than Buick’s largest sedan. How can that be? The blame (and credit) goes to the extensive structural bracing that gives the Cascada the solid feel of a steel-topped coupe. It’s free of the shakes and jitters than sometimes plague convertibles, but it’s also a heavyweight. That makes the Cascada a pleasant tourer, not a track star.

Like other Buicks, the Cascada excels at smooth, quiet running. The thickly insulated top does an impressive job of filtering out noise and cold, and you can still hold a normal conversation when it’s down. Handling is typical of a modern luxury car, confident and responsive, but subordinate to ride comfort. In keeping with the Cascada’s relaxed personality, power delivery is exceptionally smooth for a turbocharged engine. The sprint from zero to 60 mph takes about 8 seconds, which we consider average performance, somewhere between quick and slow.

The Cascada is EPA rated at 20/27 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. In the world of luxury convertibles, you could do better or worse depending on your priorities. As with other aspects of its performance, the Cascada aims to please the typical buyer in this class and succeeds in that regard.

We should note that visibility, always a concern with soft-top convertibles, isn’t an issue with the Cascada. Negotiating traffic with the top up is no more challenging than in a fixed-roof luxury coupe.


The Buick Cascada is an upscale convertible packed with comforts that cruises like a big sedan and is easy to drive and enjoy. We appreciate the careful engineering that went into making it a well-rounded, thoroughly contemporary American convertible.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
