Vauxhall Cascada teaser images 0

The Vauxhall Cascada has been partially shown off with a mysterious image being brandished about. Only half the convertible vehicle is in the image under various backgrounds.

The four seater sporty looking car will go on sale at the beginning of next year. From the teaser promotion images, it looks like an Astra convertible. Vauxhall have completely denied that. However it may not have been wise to make people think that considering that the Astra convertible was not a very successful vehicle.

It’s dimension stand at 4.7 metres long, which is 7cm longer than the Audi A5 convertible. It’s roof can be opened or closed at speeds of up to 30 MPH. The Vauxhall Cascada is 225 mm less in length when compared to the Astra Twin Top, a car that was discontinued in 2010.

The release of the car will essentially mean that Vauxhall are no longer competing within the compact cabriolet sector. The Vauxhall Astra Mk3 convertible performed fairly well in it’s time but did not hit the heights of other rivals.

Despite the company’s European woes, Vauxhall have released three new vehicles this year. The Mokka and the Adam on top of the Cascada proves that there is plenty of fight left in the British based brand.

The chairman of Vauxhall, Duncan Aldred has stated how exciting times are for the company at the moment. He said “The Cascada, along with the Adam and Mokka, will bring a fresh and exciting dimension to our product line-up. This year is genuinely a new chapter in Vauxhall’s long history, and I’m pleased that we’re able to enter the mid-size convertible sector and continue to refresh people’s perception of our great brand.”

Strangely enough the car will not get great exposure at the Paris Motor Show at the end of September. Instead Vauxhall have decided to focus more on the Adam at the event. Many believe that the new city car can make a tremendous impact in the car market next year.

The car is not due on sale until next year. More details about the car will be revealed as time edges closer towards to the vehicle’s release. The Audi A5 will cost a staggering £29,455. The Vauxhall Cascada will surely undercut this price and could offer some great competition within the luxury segment too.
