Opel Cascada, the new Astra Cabrio returns to canvas roof

Opel Cascada

For a long time we have been waiting for the convertible variant of the Opel Astra that will definitely not be marketed as such, but under the name Opel itself Cascada. As the brand itself says, the name was chosen by Cascada end in “a”, as has become tradition at Opel, but also by the dynamism generated by the meaning of this word of Castilian.

The Opel Cascada measured 4.70 meters, and even longer than the Opel Astra Sedan own and as a convertible Audi A5 Cabrio. Your body can accommodate four adult passengers and a system of opening and closing of a fabric roof that can be collected or displayed in a few seconds (still not say how many) at speeds up to 50 km / h.

Opel CascadaRecall that the return to the canvas roof is new since the last Opel compact convertible (the old Astra TwinTop) had retractable hardtop, and should go back to the late 90s and the last Opel Astra Cabrio Bertone.

Appeals to his legacy Opel car convertible, with over 70 years of history, and models like the big OE-Type of the 20s. But the Opel Cascada is the natural successor to their previous model generation knew as Opel Astra TwinTop.

While we wait for the rest of the details concerning the upcoming release of the German mark, it is clear that they have chosen to accompany its new range of products whose names are more evocative establish greater differentiation between models. After the Opel Adam, Opel Mokka and comes this Opel Waterfall shows yet too important details like your rear or front, but certainly beyond sharing platform with the Opel Astra, share most of the features that we saw and in the last iteration of this compact, the Opel Astra 2012 and even more in common with the new Opel Astra Sedan.

After its presentation at the Paris Motor Show later this month, will begin preparations for launch in early 2013, just in time to prepare well in advance of the spring season convertible.
