The Top Gear car review:Vauxhall Cascada

Overall verdict
Cabrios are image cars; is Vauxhall an image carmaker? Simple answer: not yet. But you never know what'll happen down the line...


Decent looking, comfortable cruiser


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.
