7) Buick Cascada
Cascada means waterfall in Spanish. Buick’s mid size convertible sells in the US at a starting price of $33,065. Available in three models the car is designed to be balanced and refined.
The powerpack is a 1.6 litre turbo 4-cylinder, direct injection gasoline engine with variable valve timing. This combines with a 6-speed, electronically controlled automatic transmission, which Buick claims is perfectly matched with the engine for seamless shifts.
Chrome accents and 20-inch aluminum wheels add to the car’s good looks. The car’s many creature comforts start with the leather-appointed sport bucket front seats. Safety features include lane depart warning, forward collision alert, park assist, and many more, depending on the Cascada variant.
The car’s soft top can open in 17 seconds. A convenient seven inch diagonal touchscreen display with navigation is a useful accessory to have. Also available is the 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot feature.
