With a mixture of sophisticated engineering and premium materials, the new Vauxhall Cascada takes the pleasure and practicality of open air driving a significant step further.
Aerodynamically clean and refined, the soft top of the new Vauxhall Cascada fits perfectly with the pillar-less style. It is made of premium quality fabric, features a heated glass rear screen and disappears completely below a high quality tonneau cover when lowered.
Operation is instinctively simple. The internal operating switch is located in the lower centre console where the hand naturally drops onto it, enabling attention to be kept firmly focused on the road. External operation is just as easy. Key operated remote control is standard on all Cascada models.
Opening the roof takes just 17 seconds and closing it 19 seconds. It can be raised or lowered at up to 30mph. All windows can be opened or closed by operating the four-windows-switch integrated with the soft-top operating switch.
The electro-hydraulic mechanism for the roof has been tested 15,000 times, corresponding to 10 years’ usage at four operations per day. The soft top also reduces the vehicle’s weight by approximately 100kg in comparison to a hard top.
The fabric is a well-proven high quality material. It is car wash proof, needs no regular maintenance and is UV resistant and long-term colour fast, to help it retain its good looks.
Standard two-layer soft-top worldwide testing at extreme temperatures has proved that it is absolutely weatherproof and insulation is superior to a retractable hard top.
If you want an even quieter life, there is also an acoustic soft-top option for even better noise and thermal comfort. This features acoustically enhanced exterior fabric and a special layer of polyester fleece between the top layer and the interior lining. This improves thermal insulation and further reduces the noise level in the cabin by up to a third.
