The front-wheel-drive Cascada is a four-seat soft-top convertible.
It's a well thought out convertible with a fully-insulated top and responsive handling.
The ride is steady but can be a bit stiff due to the standard 20 inch tires.
The leather seats are supportive but it's a long reach to access the touchscreen infotainment system, and the center dash is a mess of buttons.
The power-operated fabric roof takes 17 seconds to open, and can be opened or closed at speeds up to 31 mph.
Rear-seat access is made easier by front seats that power-slide forward.
A partition in the trunk can be flipped to increase cargo room when the top is raised.
Safety equipment includes forward-collision alert, lane-departure warning if you opt for the Premium trim.
