Whatever the summer brings, you’ll be ready to make the most of it with the Cascada. With its streamlined profile and bold stance, the Cascada is that rare thing: a full-size, four-seat convertible that looks just as stylish with the roof up or down. Inside the quality of the craftsmanship is clear. Everything from the materials to the choice of technology has been hand-picked.
When the sun shines so does the Cascada, its high quality fabric roof opens in only 17 seconds. And when the outlook turns the warmth and protection of the dual-layered roof can be experienced in just 19 seconds.
Purposeful and inviting, the Cascada’s unmistakable profile is desirable from every angle. Whether it’s out on the road or parked on your driveway, the elegant lines, sculpted body and familiar ‘blade’ styling give the Cascada its striking, expressive look – one that you won’t forget any time soon.
When your convertible has the right kind of roof, there’s no need to keep one eye on the weather forecast. On the most inclement of days the Cascada’s duallayered Black fabric roof will keep you warm and dry. It takes just 17 seconds to open and 19 seconds to close. You can even operate it on the move – at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. Top up or top down you’re free to enjoy all weather knowing that when the sunshine makes a comeback, the convertible experience is only moments away.
You can also choose an optional triple-layered acoustic fabric roof in Black or Malbec. With its multiple layers it won’t just keep you warm it also provides additional soundproofing making motorway cruising as enjoyable as an open-top drive through the country.
Developed with comfort and practicality in mind, the Cascada’s interior is stylish and well-equipped. Soft-touch Morrocana dashboard, colour-contrasted seat piping and tailored stitching add a touch of luxury and panache. And technology plays its part too. Electronic front seatbelt presenters, standard on Elite models, automatically push the belts forward so you don’t have to turn around. It’s just another thoughtful touch that makes the Cascada ideal for everyday driving.
Don’t let the Cascada’s looks distract you from what really matters. This four-seat convertible is a real driver’s car. Choose turbo power from multi-valve petrol or diesel engines with up to 200PS available from the 1.6i Direct Injection petrol unit. And thanks to its outstandingly rigid sports chassis and HiPerStrut front suspension, the soft top doesn’t cost you an ounce of dynamism or driveability.
The Cascada has been engineered to combine the broad stance and elegant lines of a luxury cabriolet with the cornering, control and responsiveness of a hard top. Plus the optional FlexRide system will deliver an even sharper response and greater precision during cornering and provide you with a more relaxed ride for long-distance cruising. So you can enjoy an exciting driving experience, rain or shine.
Safety is a number one priority in every car, which is why every Cascada benefits from a reassuring array of safety technology. Front and side airbags, reinforced steel windscreen pillars and the pop-up roll-over bar system are designed to help keep you safe should the unthinkable happen.
A substantially reinforced chassis improves stability, while reinforced tubular-steel pillars give the front section extra rigidity. Combined with the Cascada’s high-strength, steel passenger safety cell, these features enhance the overall safety of the car and improve steering response.
One of the most important safety features in the Cascada is one you’re extremely unlikely to ever see: the steel roll-over bars and safety cage behind the rear seats. If the car should roll over, the bars react instantaneously, accelerating upwards to help protect you and your passengers from the impact.
In addition to the roll-over bars, the Cascada also comes with active head restraints that automatically move forward and upwards to help minimise the risk of whiplash injury and guard against other head and upper body injuries.
The Cascada can be equipped with the very latest Bi-Xenon Adaptive Forward Lighting Plus (AFL+) headlight system as an option. This uses a front-mounted camera, rain sensor and steering angle input to improve visibility and safety by automatically adjusting the strength of your headlights to suit different speeds, manoeuvres, weather conditions and traffic situations.
By introducing a range of state-of-the-art electronic driver aids we’ve made driving the Cascada easier and safer. The innovative front camera system reads the road and informs you about what’s ahead.
Roof up or roof down, an audio system with seven premium speakers and digital radio fills the Cascada with sound. And with USB connectivity and Bluetooth® together with the availability of satellite navigation systems you’re guaranteed to be kept informed and up to date while on the move.
The Cascada is a four-seater that is available with a whole range of practical features that you wouldn’t expect to find in a convertible.
