Despite the recent dreary weather, a brand new ray of sunshine has arrived in the showroom of local Vauxhall retailer, Evans Halshaw.
The Vauxhall Cascada arrives in showrooms
An all-new convertible, the Cascada, is now on display at the dealership in Saltash and local motorists are being invited to explore and test-drive the new four-seater model, which is set to revitalise the full-size convertible market.
Staff and customers alike are celebrating the arrival of this seamless and sophisticated soft-top at the dealership on Gilston Road, as Ben Darnell, Dealer Principal, explains: "Not only is the Cascada the fourth new Vauxhall model to be introduced in a year, following the launches of the Ampera, Mokka and ADAM, but it is also the first full-sized convertible designed, engineered and manufactured by Vauxhall since the 1930s."
A soft-top for all seasons
Competitively priced from £23,995 on the road - nearly £8,000 less than the smaller Audi A5 Cabriolet - the C-sector Cascada offers an exhilarating and comfortable ride whatever the weather.
With its multi layered fabric roof, which opens in just 17 seconds at speeds of up to 30mph, the model is ideally suited to travel all year round, from cosy winter journeys to top-down coastal cruising.
The new model is available in two trims: SE and Elite. The entry level SE boasts 18" alloy wheels, a sports chassis, LED tail lamps and aux-in/USB, all as standard. And in addition the Elite model comes with leather trim, heated front seats and steering wheel, front fog lamps, windbreak and dual zone climate control.
What's more, the Cascada is available in ten colours and can be ordered with solid, two-coat metallic or two-coat pearlescent paint, as well as a choice of three roof colours, depending on exterior colour.
Built with style, power and performance in mind
Cascada owners can enjoy its spacious cabin space and high-quality materials, with a wealth of well-equipped functionality and handcrafted features not found in any other Vauxhall.
The Cascada also brings together all Vauxhall's latest, innovative technology and includes options such as Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) and a front and rear view camera system.
Meanwhile, on the exterior, the weather- and car-wash-proof fabric roof comes in an acoustic soft top option to offer increased noise reduction and thermal comfort, whilst other personalisation options include six different alloy wheel choices with sizes up to 20-inch.
The new vehicle, which can be ordered from Evans Halshaw now, also boasts a broad range of powerful and efficient engines as well as new six-speed manual and automatic transmissions. Starting the line-up is a 1.4-litre (140PS) Turbo petrol with a manual gearbox and a 2.0-litre (165PS) diesel engine with manual and automatic transmissions, both with start/stop technology.
But the highlight of Cascada's powertrain line-up is the all-new 1.6 SIDI Turbo ECOTEC petrol engine, which will be available shortly after launch.
To make purchasing a brand new Cascada even easier, customers at Evans Halshaw have the option to drive away at a monthly payment to suit their budget, thanks to Vauxhall's innovative zero per cent APR Flexible Finance scheme*.
With zero per cent APR Representative, no minimum deposit and a payment term varying between 24 to 60 months*, Flexible Finance makes it easy for motorists to buy their chosen vehicle at a cost that suits them. This means that motorists could, for example, take to the road in a Cascada SE 1.4 (140PS) Start / Stop for just £279 a month for 60 months, with a £7,255 customer deposit.
And like all new Vauxhalls, the Cascada comes with a warranty which could now last a lifetime, so customers can be confident that they are getting the best possible aftercare and service, too. Available to the first owner of all new Vauxhall cars, the warranty is valid for the lifetime of the vehicle up to a maximum of 100,000 miles.
Ben Darnell concludes: "With outstanding levels of standard spec, even in entry-level SE trim, the Cascada offers high quality equipment, technology and luxury at an affordable price.
"Plus, with Vauxhall's unique Flexible Finance scheme, taking to the road in a Cascada with a payment to suit a customer's own budget means there's never been a better time to get behind the wheel and embrace the open road."
