A soft top should have all the engineered-in safety of a hard top. Thanks to advances in structural engineering, high tensile strength materials and dedicated rollover protection, the Cascada does.
The new Vauxhall Cascada surrounds you with a rigid safety structure reinforced with extra body cross members. The graceful windscreen pillars are press hardened and conceal hard rolled steel reinforcement bars that reach down below the doors.
The rollover bars are anchored in the strongest part of the rear structure. Normally they stay elegantly out of sight but, should you ever need them, they are ready to protect you in less time than it takes to blink, as they’re triggered by the airbag sensors.
Full sized front airbags combined with oversized side airbags that add extra head protection are standard on every new Vauxhall Cascada.
Other measures include double seatbelt pre-tensioners to hold you safely in the optimum protective position. The seat frames and mountings also play a significant safety role, as do Vauxhall’s well-proven active headrests. These move upwards and forwards under impact to guard against whiplash and upper body injuries. Meanwhile, the equally well-proven pedal release system detaches the pedals under impact to guard against foot and lower leg injuries.
The alarm system for the new Vauxhall Cascada has been designed for all-round peace of mind. Any attempt to enter the vehicle will result in the lights flashing and the alarm sounding. The system carries its own back-up power supply and guards the complete vehicle and its contents.
