The front-wheel-drive Cascada is a well-thought-out, four-seat, soft-top convertible that keeps wind buffeting to a minimum. The ride is steady but can be a bit stiff because of the standard 20-inch tires. Handling is responsive, but power is modest and fuel economy isn't great. The leather seats are supportive, but it's a long reach to access the touch-screen infotainment system, and the center dash is a mess of buttons. The power-operated, fully insulated fabric roof takes 17 seconds to open and can be operated when the car is traveling at speeds up to 31 mph. Rear-seat access is made easier by front seats that power-slide forward. Opting for the Premium or Sport Touring trims bring advanced safety equipment including forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning.
