Drivetrain:Front Wheel Drive
Watching the Super Bowl earlier this year cost me a new car. I had not heard of the Cascada until I saw the SB ad for it; to this day it's the only ad I've ever seen for the car, TV or otherwise. And since I love convertibles (had two Triumph TR-3s as a young man) and don't want a pricey European import, decided to go to the dealer and take a look. I did, and I was hooked. I am tall (6'5") and most convertibles have me looking directly at the top of the windshield frame, instead of through the glass. Not good. But not so the Cascada, where I sit low enough that I can actually see the road instead of the windshield frame. Much mo' bettah, as we used to say in Hawai'i. Since the last car I bought was a 2003, I admit to being stunned (and delighted) at the progress the industry has made in 13 years with respect to goodies in the cockpit. The Cascada cockpit is something out of Star Wars compared to my last car, and it has enough doo-dads to keep me entertained for years to come. The engine is also a pleasant surprise: it's only 1.6 L but it's quite peppy and remarkably low-revving for any given speed...it can cruise at 60 mph at barely 2,000 RPM...pretty good for such a small engine. Mileage is also surprisingly good...just did a trip where I got a little over 30 mpg on the Interstate, cruising at 64 mph. Bottom line: I really like the car and of course look for reasons to drive it...and living in Florida, that's not hard to do!Read more reviews at Cars.com
