The Opel Cascada is now also available with the 147 kW/200 hp version of the all-new 1.6 ECOTEC 
Direct Injection Turbo engine. The new-generation Turbo is the top-of-the-line unit in the Cascada engine portfolio with powerful maximum torque of 300 Nm thanks to overboost. This powerhouse Cascada is available for an entry-level price of 29,490 euros in Germany.

The Cascada has even more new features on offer, with the color collection 2014 boasting two new shades. The ten body colors already available are now joined by sophisticated Emerald Green and classic Magnetic Silver. In addition, the year-round convertible’s premium soft-top, which can be opened in 17 seconds at driving speeds up to 50 km/h, can now be ordered in a fourth color, Khaki Grey. In the cockpit, the Cascada offers the state-of-the-art, very user-friendly and fast IntelliLink infotainment system. With this, driver and passengers can simply bring their smartphone world into the Cascada.

200 hp output, 300 Nm maximum torque thanks to overboost and 235 km/h top speed – the high-performance 1.6 ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo from Opel’s new-generation engine family that made its world premiere in the Opel Cascada at this year’s IAA is now available to order. The engine is one of the all-new Opel four-cylinder units with gasoline direct injection and in this second, new variant marks the top of Opel’s 1.6-liter class. The Cascada features exemplary elasticity, accelerating from 80 to 120 km/h in just 9.2 seconds in fifth gear. In spite of its top performance figures, the mid-size convertible consumes only 6.7 liters fuel per 100 km (158 g/km CO2) in the combined cycle.

The new 1.6 ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo with 147 kW/200 hp rounds off the Cascada engine portfolio on the top end, with four gasoline units now available. It joins the 1.4 Turbo with 88 kW/120 hp and 103 kW/140 hp as well as the 125 kW/170 hp 1.6-liter gasoline direct injection unit. On the diesel side, a 2-liter turbo diesel with 121 kW/165 hp and the 143 kW/195 hp 2.0 BiTurbo CDTI are available. Both need just 5.2 liters fuel per 100 km and emit 138 g/km CO2, easily earning them the German A energy efficiency label.

The new body colors underscore the Cascada’s powerful, elegant appearance. Cascada customers can now also choose the sophisticated pearlescent Emerald Green lacquer or the double-layer metallic Magnetic Silver paint. And Opel also expands the offer for the roof. The premium soft-top with exceptional thermal and acoustic insulation can now also be ordered in light Khaki Grey, increasing the selection to four roof colors.

With Opel’s new-generation IntelliLink system, state-of-the-art infotainment technology including fast, user-friendly navigation and voice control makes its way into the Cascada cockpit. Easy operation is guaranteed via a seven-inch, high-resolution color monitor that also displays images from the optional rearview camera. The system features Bluetooth phone connectivity and audio streaming, while the top-of-the-line Navi 950 IntelliLink contains maps of all of Europe. Map updates can be downloaded via USB. The driver can also for example have the system read out incoming text messages. In addition to voice control over IntelliLink, the new Opel system also supports and integrates smartphones’ own voice recognition functions.
