The 2019 Buick Cascada offers three trim levels: base, Premium and Sport Touring
The base-level Cascada ($33,070) touts a surprisingly long list of standard equipment that includes a power soft-top, 20-in wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, remote ignition, heated 8-way power front seats, heat-reflective leather upholstery, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, OnStar emergency communications, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, a 7-in touchscreen interface, one USB port and a 7-speaker sound system with satellite radio, a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack.
Step up to the Premium ($36,070), and you get forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, front parking sensors, interior wind deflectors and a navigation system.
The Sport Touring trim ($37,070) adds a flat-bottom steering wheel, special wheels and unique paint choices. The Dark Effects package, available only on this trim, adds black exterior trim, piano black interior trim and red seat stitching.
Standard on all models are pop-up roll bars, rear parking sensors, front-side airbags, a driver-knee airbag, antilock brakes and a rearview camera. Drivers who step up to the Premium trim will be rewarded with forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning and front parking sensors. We only wish the Cascada offered a blind spot monitoring system and rear cross-traffic alert, as both can be important for convertibles given their notoriously large blind spots.
The federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Cascada a 5-star overall crash rating, plus four stars for frontal impacts and a 5-star side-impact rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not crash-tested the Cascada yet.
2022 Buick Cascada vs the competition
2019 Audi A3 Convertible -- Audi's soft-top A3 Cabriolet convertible is more expensive than the Cascada, and it offers less standard equipment, but it boasts a stiffer structure, a higher-end cabin and better driving dynamics.
2019 Ford Mustang Convertible -- Admittedly, the Mustang is a fundamentally different type of car than the Cascada. However, given the Buick's price and available feature content, there are only so many convertibles to compare it with.
2018 Volkswagen Beetle -- There won't be a 2019 Volkswagen Beetle, as it's been discontinued, but 2018 models are still worth a look if they're still on dealer lots. It'll be cheaper than the Cascada, more modern on the inside and zippier to drive. It's smaller, though.
Used Audi A5 Convertible -- The A5 convertible offers more interior room than the Cascada, along with better available performance and optional all-wheel drive. Prices are steep, though, so you may want to consider a used model.
