Vauxhall confirms mid-sized convertible for UK

Vauxhall will launch a mid-sized convertible early next year in the UK called Cascada.

There has only been a teaser shot so far of what the model will look like. However, Vauxhall has confirmed some details.

The new model is longer than an Audi A5 convertible and it will be the first time Vauxhall has had a medium-sized cabrio in the market since the 1930s.

The new Vauxhall Cascada is 4.7m long, 225mm longer than the Astra TwinTop. The new model will have a fabric rood which can be operated at speeds of up to 30mph.

Cascada, a Spanish word meaning waterfall, is the third new name to be introduced by Vauxhall this year, following Mokka and Adam, and the brand wants each model to attract incremental business.

The Cascada will not be at the Paris Motor Show this month as all the focus will be on the launch of the new Adam.
