DRIVES AS SHARP AS IT LOOKS.

Head turning looks you can see straight away, but combining them with outstanding driving dynamics and engines1 are what makes the Opel Cascada a real long-term winner.

Superior stiffness, outstanding dynamics

Great looks deserve the finest driving dynamics. In terms of proven sophisticated chassis engineering, the Opel Cascada features Opel HiPerStrut front and WattsLink rear suspension. Significantly it also has very high torsional chassis/body stiffness to maximize the exceptional potential of this advanced suspension.

 

This torsional stiffness has been achieved by cross underbody 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. Another plus point is that it enables the Opel Cascada to ride on 20 inch wheels without modification. At the rear the WattsLink provides optimum accurate tracking. Add Opel FlexRide® to these and 3 individual suspension settings mean that you can choose exactly how you want to drive, anywhere, anytime.

Smooth power, endless torque

Opel Cascada's outstanding looks are matched by smooth, satisfying performance. One diesel and four petrol engines provide the power.

The sophistication starts with the 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC®, delivering 88 kW (120 hp). The next step is a 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC® with 103 kW (140 hp) which also offers Start/Stop System.

The 1.6 Turbo ECOTEC® Direct Injection starts with 125 kW (170 hp) and also offers the more powerful variant with 147 kW (200 hp).

For diesel fans the ultra smooth 2.0 CDTI ECOTEC® with Start/Stop System delivers an invigorating 125 kW (170 hp). Like all the other engines it complies with Euro 6.

Transmission is via Opel's own highly advanced 6-speed manual gearbox. The combination is perfectly suited to the elegance, delivering effortless power through the whole spectrum, easily distributed by smooth shifting precision.

The 1.6 Turbo ECOTEC® Direct Injection with 125 kW (170 hp) comes with the highly responsive 6-speed automatic transmission.
