2017 Buick Cascada ST Makes Scenic Drives Even More CaptivatingNew special edition convertible revealed during thousand-mile road rallyNORTHPORT, MICH
. — The Buick Cascada convertible delivers the freedom of open-air motoring through a driving experience wîth unexpected luxuries such as ÚV-reflective leather-appointed seats and a quiet, triple-insulated top. The Cascada's attainable luxury will now include the reward of a uniquely bold style statement wîth an all-new Sport Touring edition.
In the 2017 Buick Cascada Sport Touring, customers will have the chance to make an even more stylish statement wîth a unique paint color, new wheel design, and other custom content that enhances the Cascada's balanced proportions.
Road-trippers participating in the fifth annual Mille Mitten rally got a first look at the Cascada ST this past weekend on a 1,000-mile drive through the forests and lakefronts of northern Michigan. The Cascada was designed wîth road rally-like adventures and road trips in mind, and its convertible top retracts in 17 seconds at speeds up to 31 miles per hour so customers can breathe in every second of sunshine and scenery.
The 2017 Cascada ST is only available in True Blue Metallic, a paint color not offered on other Cascada models. The unique paint is complemented by a black cloth top that includes three layers of fabric structure for signature Buick quietness and insulation. Five-spoke, 20-inch wheels are new for the Cascada ST, as are Black Magic interior trim components, sport pedals and a flat-bottom sport §teering wheel.
When it arrives at dealers this fall, the Cascada Sport Touring will be priced at $37,885 including destination. Priced and packaged for a simple buying experience, it features all the content offered on other Cascada models.

'The Mille Mitten celebrates the unique combination of features Michigan has to offer, from the deep blue of the Great Lakes to stunning star-filled nights deep in the forest,' said Ben Bator, Mille Mitten founder. 'The Cascada is the perfect companion for this memorable experience, and the new Sport Touring builds off the same color palette that makes nature so inspiring.'
To capture the Cascada ST on the open road, Buick worked wîth photographer Zach Allia on the photos you see here. Allia left a career in Silicon Valley to explore the natural world and express it through his photography, which has gained him an Instagram following of 420,000 fans.
Customer response to the Cascada has been strong since launch, wîth 2016 sales outpacing expectations. Through the first half of the year, Cascada has outsold the Audi A3 convertible and Audi A5 convertible combined. Cascada offers a base price lower than the A3, but wîth space on par wîth the A5.
Cascada continues Buick's safety leadership wîth a five-star crash test rating from NHTSA. Buick was the first brand to receive five-star ratings for every model in the lineup.Source - Buick
