    Not really. I think they should have waited for a refresh or redesign where the interior would have been upgraded and perhaps bought more time to bring in more Buick-like styling cues.

    Oh, this is supposed to be a Buick? Ridiculous, right?

    Too much Opel, not enough Buick.

    **Yawn** A Buick you say?
    For a moment there, I thought it was the new Chrysler Sebring.

    I think Buick screwed up once again in doing this unwanted thing, instead of giving us the New Riviera, that was teased way too many times.
    (Yes, I know, the gull wing doors were a stupid idea. Blah,blah, blah.)

    But the rest of the car was very do-able, and if it came with the V6 Hybrid, it would have been a real winner in the showroom.
    Oh well,...JAC. (Just another convertible) **Yawn**

    I wondered what the marketing department was smoking all this time, in order to justify their jobs, and this is all the better they could come up with?
    Another 4 banger convertible.
    Just what the world needs.

    Looks WAY to much like an Opel...just an Opel with a Buick badge stuck on instead of an Opel badge...very disappointed.

    Well there's only 5 votes so I guess the poll doesn't hold much weight but at least I'm not alone in the way I feel about this car...

    Re: Is anybody excited about the Buick Cascada?

    I'm definitely excited about the Cascada making it to the U.S. and will probably trade my Camaro Convertible in toward one. However, it definitely will not be the 1st U.S. model year in hopes that they'll fit a slightly more powerful 4 cylinder engine and offer more colors.

    This car has been on the market for the past 2-3 years in Europe and elsewhere and they're being offered in a burgundy, light blue and metallic light / lime green. As of now, there will only be 4 -5 colors offered in the U.S. for the 1st MY. That MUST change! Other GM offers as many as 12(!) colors on some models such as the 2016 Camaro, Impala, et al.

    I have mixed emotions.

    For those of us who regularly buy convertibles, this will be the most reasonable priced one on the market with comparable equipment, a somewhat usable back seat, a usable trunk and front wheel drive. Front wheel drive is important for those of us in northern climates who will not consider rear wheel drive because of difficulty driving during the winter. 4 wheel drive is a potential solution to that but it adds to cost and complexity. Those are all positives.

    There are some negatives, though. There are a couple of things not included or even available on the Premium model that I do not like. The first is lack of a blind spot monitor being standard or at least available on any of the trim levels. We have it on one of our two cars and view it as one of the all-time best safety enhancements available based on normal day to day driving. I really did not want to consider another car without that feature.

    Another is lack of push button start with true hands free entry without having to fish the fob out of the pocket. Preproduction pictures show a conventional key and there is mention of folding key. While the pictures are pre-production the copy on the Buick web site would be more current and would say if that was one of the features. This is one of many things you can get spoiled by on other cars that causes you to want it on a new one. That is particularly the case on this during the winter in northern climates.

    Then there is the center of the dash.

    buttons.jpg

    It looks like a total of 38 buttons and 4 knobs. That has to set a new record and that is not a good record to set. Most manufacturers have moved to only the most frequently used functions to have buttons. It is handy to have some functions controlled by buttons, but when there are so many it becomes difficult to find the right one.
