Report: Buick nears launching new convertible for 2016 model year

Buick is just about on the verge of launching a new convertible, making it the first droptop to come from America’s oldest active automaker since the Buick Reatta of the 1980s and early 1990s. And much like the current Buick Regal, which is based off of a current Opel, the new Buick convertible will too be based off of an Opel.

The Opel of honorable mention is the current Cascada and according to GMInsideNews, the Buick version retains the Cascada nameplate, after being showed to dealers at an exclusive event last week.

Not much is specifically known about the new Buick Cascada, though the ‘vert isn’t really expected to change much from the Opel version. Engines could range from a turbo 1.6L four-banger with 197hp and 221 lb-ft of torque while other reports hint at the use of a larger 2.0L turbo-four with 250hp.
