Buick Cascada axed, sales will continue through 2019

With the Opel/Vauxhall Cascada due to end production this year, it was only a matter of time before it became official the Buick version would also be axed.


Opel/Vauxhall is now part of the PSA Group, and it has been busy cutting unprofitable models, including this slow selling convertible based on a GM platform.

GM has confirmed to Automotive News, “[The Cascada] has reached the end of its originally-planned lifecycle and 2019 will be the last model year offered. Dealers have been notified and many will have stock through the rest of this year.”

The Cascada was Buick’s first convertible since the 1991 Reatta. Around 17,000 have been sold in the US since it went on sale in 2016.
