I would like to see this in hardtop Astra version sold alongside the Cascada. Convertibles are very niche.

Preferably with performance engine and suspension.

Opel sold some Astras with sports engines and suspensions made to compete with the VW GTI.

Regardless, GM sold Opel/Vauxhall and withdrew from Europe so I don't expect us to see more cool Euro cars coming from Buick. . .

Kinda weird that GM doesn't own Opel anymore, but Opel still builds the Regal for them.

I'm wondering about the next generation of Regal and how it might be more American than European (and that's a good thing !)

Buick Need to build a Regal with a blown V8 or at least a turbo V6.
I'd trade my Regal in a heartbeat !

I own one now and love it. Convertibles are always a compromise but worth it to some folks (myself included). The most amazing feature is the speed of the top mechanism and the ability to operate it at speed. If you own a convertible, you know that the weather can turn in the worst possible times. Being able to confidently operate it at stop lights and be sure that you won't block traffic is great. So I get the slams, there are some features I would have liked. But I really don't care in my own scale of priorities.

I guess the answer is Nope.

On October 6, 2018, PSE announced that it is ending production on the Cascada after its cycle ends in 2019, citing slow and declining sales. There are no plans for a replacement. Concurrently, the end of the Cascada will also be discontinued by Buick and likewise will not offer a successor.

Chiming in 4 years later on this topic...

Don't hate it. Don't Love it. Radically Raked Windshield is its best Attribute..
Bigger Funky Styled Wheels help it out..

With only 1.4 engine, that's a turn off..
It gives off an old, out of rental service Chrysler LeBarron / Sebring Convertible sorta Vibe.

I want to like it, but feel like it has a Female " Mid Life Crisis " stigma attached to it.
And.. a whole Asian Opel - Non-American Buickness to it..

Perhaps in far distant future when every car on the road is Cross-Over-Electricish Homoginized Cookie Cutter looking thing on the Roadscape....
Then the Cascada just might find its niche' as a cool Buick Car worthy of the Tri-Shield.

Keeping an open mind, who knows, these things might be potential future collectible classics ?

Unfortunately the Cascada is dead Bhodi [quoted the prior post]. Agree on all your observations, many of them explain why it failed along with a general malaise in the sedan market. My biggest gripe is the engine, a car that's supposed to be fun needs a fun drivetrain.

10-4 on the nail in the coffin, understood it's dead.

Like most Buicks, I'd be looking down the road for low milage used one driven by a little old lady....

Might be a fun little beer run getter, beach blanket crusier...

Plenty of Options and Choices in Bhodi Family Fleet to swap out for a Cascada down the road..

Got a "Convertible" now ^ that can also give the thrills on the sand and in the the snow....
13835
Can always grab the keys to the Kiddie Cruiser ^ with minimal complaints since I funded it...

But for most days as of late.... Enjoying the new Buick
