2019 Buick Cascada Ratings & Reliability
The Cascada is a well-thought-out four-seat, soft-top convertible. Handling is responsive, and the ride is steady but a bit stiff because of the standard 20-inch tires. The 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine has modest power and returned just 22 mpg overall. 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 a quick 17 seconds to open and can be operated at speeds up to 31 mph. Wind intrusion is kept to a minimum during top-down driving. Rear-seat access is made easier by front seats that power-slide forward. Opting for the Premium or Sport Touring trim brings advanced safety equipment, including forward collision warning and lane departure warning. 2019 is the last year for the Cascada.

Buick Cascada 2018
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.
