Vauxhall’s new four-seat convertible, the Cascada, will be priced between £23,995 and £29,080 when it arrives in showrooms in April.
Vauxhall is hoping the new model can target Audi A5 Cabriolet customers with a value for money offering.
It comes in two trims, with the entry level SE getting 18-inch alloy wheels, a sports chassis, LED tail lamps and aux-in/USB, as standard. The Elite includes leather trim, heated front seats and steering wheel and front fog lamps.
The vehicle’s fabric roof opens in 17 seconds at driving speeds of up to 30mph.
Starting the line-up is a 1.4-litre (138bhp) turbo petrol, with a manual gearbox, achieving 44.8mpg and 148g/km CO2, and a 2.0-litre (163bhp) diesel engine with manual and automatic transmissions, achieving up to 54.3mpg combined and 138g/km CO2.
The new 1.6 SIDI turbo ECOTEC petrol engine produces a maximum 168bhp from 1650-3200rpm and up to 280Nm of torque, giving a 0-60mph time of 9.2 seconds and top speed of 135mph. This engine will be available with a new, low-friction automatic six-speed gearbox that contributes towards fuel consumption of 39.2mpg and CO2 emissions of 168g/km.
A high-performance 2.0 (193bhp) Bi-Turbo diesel engine with manual transmission will also be available shortly after launch. The Bi-Turbo achieves a combined 138g/km and is capable of 54.3mpg.
Available in 10 colours, Cascada can be ordered with solid, two-coat metallic or two-coat pearlescent paint, and a choice of three roof colours, depending on exterior colour.
Dealers will be offering 0% Flexible Finance with any deposit over a term between 24 and 60 months.
As with all Vauxhalls, first Cascada owners will get the brand’s Lifetime Warranty, lasting the life of the car or up to 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
