It was announced in mid-August that there will be a new trim level available with the Buick Cascada convertible, which just debuted for the 2016 model year. The 2017 Buick Cascada Sport Touring Edition, or Cascada ST, includes a custom paint color, new wheel design, and more.
The ST is only offered in True Blue Metallic paint, which isn’t available on other Cascada models. The ST also has a black cloth top designed to create a quiet cabin, five-spoke 20-inch wheels, and Black Magic interior components. The Cascada ST’s sporty aspects are amped up in the ST, with sport pedals and a flat-bottom sport steering wheel.
The ST was first shown at the fifth annual Mille Mitten rally in Detroit, a 1,000-mile road trip through northern Michigan. The ST’s convertible top retracts in 17 seconds at speeds up to 31 miles per hour, one of many factors that make it a great road trip car. The Cascada and especially the ST were designed for road rally type adventures, so the Mille Mitten rally was the perfect place to debut the ST.
The Cascada ST is due to arrive in dealerships this fall and will be priced initially at $37,885. It will include all features and amenities offered on other Cascada models plus the Sport Touring features.
