For Roomy interior with space for four adults, generous standard equipment, good refinement and stable handling.

Against Limited engine range that lacks an economy hero, heavy body makes for tardy performance and it’s pricey compared with some similarly usable cabriolets.

The Vauxhall Cascada is a comfortable four-seat drop-top, that’s quiet and spacious enough for everyday use, but it falls short of the of the best in class for running costs and dynamic poise.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The sweet spot in the Cascada range is the 1.4 petrol, which is slow, but is also refined and pleasant to use if you don’t expect rapid progress. The 1.6 petrol is a new engine, but it looks expensive as it’s automatic only.

The 168bhp 2.0 diesel manual offers the gutsiest drive, and a happy medium for affordability, running costs and potential resale value if you plan on doing high mileage.

The entry-level SE spec is well equipped, but it’s worth adding sat-nav because it also brings with it a colour screen that will make the car a nicer place to be and more appealing to prospective second buyers. Bluetooth is the only other essential option. Don’t pay the extra for the adaptive dampers; the standard suspension setup is more than good enough.
