Opel is trying to spice up its four-seater convertible by giving it an assortment of visual upgrades.
General Motors revised the Buick-badged Cascada last month by giving it a new Sport Touring trim featuring a bespoke True Blue Metallic paint along with some other enhancements. Now, GM through its Opel brand has decided to freshen up the convertible’s European counterpart with a new special edition called “Supreme.”
Adding some extra flair to the “all-season convertible,” the new variant will be available in three exterior shades that all have a rather unusual name: “Black Meet Kettle”, “Pull Me Over Red”, and “Summit White.” Regardless of the one you go for, the Cascada Supreme will come with a black fabric roof matched with black accents on the front grille and on the side mirror caps.
To further set it apart from the regular version, the fog lamp housings as well as the crossbar of the logo will come colored in the same paint as the rest of the body. As a final touch to the exterior, the four-seater convertible has gained two-tone 20-inch alloy wheels with a glossy black finish.
Stepping inside the cabin, the Opel Cascada Supreme adopts a red signature line in the same vein as the one seen on the appealing GT concept. The seams of the door and cockpit trims along with the ones for the seats have a red look and are contrasted by the black seams of the center console, steering wheel, and shift lever.
Opel says it has also added a piano black laquer onto the instrument panel might which is probably a fingerprint magnet. At an additional cost, customers will be given the opportunity to go for a three-spoke steering wheel and those super comfortable heated AGR ergonomic seats wrapped in Siena leather also available on the latest Astra.
The Cascada Supreme will be on display at the forthcoming Paris Motor Show and is scheduled to go on sale in Europe in November at a yet undisclosed price tag. Also in Paris next month is going to be the Ampera-e electric hatchback, basically a Chevy Bolt for Europe.

Opel Cascada Supreme: Convertible for All Seasons with Extra Flair
- Black beauty: 20-inch two-tone wheels, grille and exterior mirrors all in black
- Haute couture: Sporty seams highlight the cockpit, steering wheel and seats
- World premiere: Debut at Paris Motor Show
Rüsselsheim. The new special edition of the Opel Cascada is for customers who want extra flair from their all-season convertible. Every detail and every shade of color of the Cascada Supreme is finely matched. As of November, the four-seat convertible can be ordered either in “Pull Me Over Red”, “Summit White” or “Black Meet Kettle”. These three exterior colors are uniquely accented by the black grille, the black mirrors and the two-tone glossy-black 20-inch alloy wheels. In order to underline these unique features, the fog-lamp housings and the crossbar of the Opel logo are body colored. The black Acoustic roof opens in only 17 seconds at speeds up to 50 km/h and does its name every justice, creating a quiet, refined interior atmosphere even at higher speeds. Convertible fans can soon admire the Opel Cascada Supreme in Paris, where it will celebrate its world premiere at the Mondial de l’Automobile (October 1-16).
The attention to detail continues inside the new Cascada Supreme. Inspired by the glowing red signature line of Opel‘s futuristic design study, the GT Concept, the seams of the seat fabrics and the door and cockpit trims are accented in sporty red. The well-tailored seams on the steering wheel, the center console and the shift lever are in matching black, while the inserts in the instrument panel are premium finished in piano black laquer. Heated AGR ergonomic seats in “Siena”-leather and a three-spoke steering wheel are optionally available. Prices for the Opel Cascada Supreme will be published later.
