Head-turning looks you can see straight away but combining them with outstanding driving dynamics and engines1 are what makes the new Vauxhall Cascada a real winner.
Great looks deserve the finest driving dynamics. In terms of proven sophisticated chassis engineering, the new Vauxhall Cascada features Vauxhall HiPerStrut front and WattsLink rear suspension. Significantly, it also has very high torsional chassis/body stiffness to maximise the exceptional potential of this advanced suspension.
This torsional stiffness has been achieved by cross under body strengthening elements and special high-strength A pillars reinforced by high-tensile tubular steel. Together with the outstanding structural rigidity this provides the basis for the precise steering, smooth ride and outstanding handling.
The overall rigidity together with the HiPerStrut front suspension is also a major factor in the high ride comfort and the ultra-low levels of noise, vibration and harshness. At the rear the WattsLink provides optimum accurate tracking. Add Vauxhall FlexRide® to these and three individual suspension settings mean that you can choose exactly how you want to drive, anywhere, any time.
The first of a whole new family of future Vauxhall engines. Here advanced design, metallurgy and technology have combined to deliver a silky smooth 170PS with outstanding economy and up to 280Nm of seemingly endless torque.
The engine choices that fit the new Vauxhall Cascada include both petrol and diesel. For example, The 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC® delivers a highly invigorating 140PS and up to 220Nm torque with over-boost. There’s also a 2.0 CDTI ECOTEC diesel with a smooth 165PS and 350Nm torque.
The new 6-speed automatic transmission is highly responsive. It has fewer moving parts than its predecessor, thereby reducing complexity and increasing efficiency. The result is a transmission that not only brings all the satisfaction of manual transmission to driving, it also intelligently adjusts to individual driving styles, delivering more comfortable gear changing under all conditions.
All the engine and transmission options for the new Vauxhall Cascada are carefully chosen to match the flair and style while still delivering optimum economy. In addition, the start/stop system and ecoFLEX Drive Assist ensure optimum eco-friendliness.
