A single tailpipe at the rear expels the exhaust from a turbocharged, 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine.

The tonneau cover on four-seater convertibles tends to necessitate a tubby look, which Buick mitigates through front and side styling.

The soft top uses an acoustic layer, which should lower road noise when occupants want a little shade.

Front seats incorporate side bolsters, hinting at Buick's sporting intention with the Cascada.

Buick calls the Cascada's seating 2+2, meaning the rear seats will be a strain for a full-size adult.

The Cascada's dashboard shows conservative styling, as it uses real gauges instead of an LCD panel. The center touchscreen serves as the interface for Buick IntelliLink.

The six-speed automatic transmission includes a manual shift mode.
