The first Opel Cascada has rolled off the assembly line at the company's plant in Gliwice, Poland.

Set to go on sale in April, the Cascada marks Opel's return to the mid-size convertible segment. In order to appeal to as many customers as possible, the model will be highly customizable as it offers ten exterior colors, three roof colors and nine alloy wheels in sizes ranging from 17- to 20-inches. The Cascada also has four different trim levels, three infotainment systems and a variety of high-end options.

Under the hood, four different engines are available including:

  • A 1.4-liter Turbo with outputs of 120 HP (88 kW) and 140 HP (103 kW)
  • A 1.6-liter SIDI Turbo with 170 HP (125 kW)
  • A 2.0-liter CDTI ecoFLEX with 165 HP (121 kW)
  • A 2.0-liter BiTurbo CDTI ecoFLEX with 195 HP (143 kW)

According to Opel Supervisory Board Chairman Steve Girsky, "Today is a really special day, not only for the Gliwice plant, but also for Opel. The Cascada is the next building block in our product offensive. Following the ADAM and the Mokka, with the Cascada we are now also reaching customers in segments where we have not yet been present."
