Vauxhall says it's a cut-price Audi A5 rival. We say it's good, but not that good.

Good stuff

Decent looking, comfortable cruiser

Bad stuff

Engines lack premium class, unremarkable interior


What is it?

Supposedly, Vauxhall's answer to the likes of Audi's A5 Convertible. Based on the Astra hatch, the Cascada is good, but not that good. It's a car that's likely to find friends, but the Audi will still be the cool kid in school. Nice try though, Vauxhall.
