These two weeks I performed a test drive of the pretty sharp looking 2017 Buick Cascada Sport Touring. Since I am a convertible car lover I will give this vehicle a 5 star rating already. One look at the Cascada luxury convertible and you’ll know you’re about to experience the pure fun of driving.
Balanced proportions and an elongated silhouette create a beautiful and sleek profile.
The 2017 Buick Cascada looks especially fancy roof less. My light blue tester had a backseats and good space in the trunk. Not too common in a roofless style cars. Driving to pick up my daughter from the airport I hoped that her suitcase would fit in the trunk.
My tester was a 4 passages convertible. The 2017 Buick Cascada had well done comfortable black leather seats. Not too many sport cars will offer you those types of seats. The heated wheel and seat are super nice, especially in 30 degree weather. Design elements like chrome accents, 20-inch aluminum wheels, and a stainless steel exhaust with bright tip add detail while the innovative soft-top lets you go from a surprisingly quiet interior to the great outdoors in just 17 seconds.

Every fancy car, in my opinion, should have a few things. Number one – go fast when you hit the gas; Number two – excellent safety features; Number three – the stabile driving mode on a flat surface and number four – excellent breaks. I felt that the safety portion failed a bit. The 2017 Buick Cascada doesn’t have side mirror safety warning-lights. The 2017 Buick Cascada Sport Touring with no passing warning lights? Why?! However, I must say the 2017 Cascada has a nice detail, the front passages seatbelts move forward once you are inside the vehicle.
Advanced technologies including available built-in 4G Wi-Fi hotspot capability to keep you connected on the go. Conveniences like the available “myBuick” app, which, if properly equipped, lets you lock, unlock, and remotely start your vehicle, help make life easier. The Buick “IntelliLink” infotainment system with seven-inch-diagonal touch screen lets you play your favorite music or make hands-free calls easily. And available navigation helps you get wherever you need to go.

With the spirited performance of a 1.6L 200-HP turbocharged engine, Cascada expresses the pure fun of driving a convertible. Whether the soft-top is up or down, you’ll feel the unmistakable thrill of the open road.
