Vauxhall Cascada Convertible was officially confirmed image

The British based automaker Vauxhall has confirmed its plans to introduce a new convertible which will be named the Cascada and it will be larger than the Astra and smaller than the Insignia.

According to the car manufacturer, the all-new Vauxhall convertible will hit the market soon under the Cascada name, which is an entirely new nameplate for Vauxhall and it’s not referring to an older model developed by the company. The Vauxhall Cascada will be placed in the lineup between the Astra and the Insignia and it’s expected to incorporate elements from both vehicles on its exterior design and in its cabin.

Vauxhall says that the Cascada will be 4, 710 mm long, which means that the model will be 70 mm longer than what is expected to be its competition, the Audi A5 Cabrio, and it’s also 225 mm longer than the Astra TwinTop. The new Vauxhall will be eclipsed by the A5 Cabrio, despite its larger size and the model will have a base starting price set at 29,455 pounds. The Cascada will get a folding fabric roof and four seats.

More details on the Vauxhall Cascada will be announced over the following months and the carmaker isn’t saying anything more on the model just yet because the attention should be on the Adam model, which will be officially presented to the public later on this month, during the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
