The all- Buick Cascada is a premium 4-seat convertible that is more practical than you might think. Find the perfect car for Florida weather at Gainesville Buick GMC, serving the cities of Newberry, Ocala, Palatka, and Lake City, FL from our Gainesville showroom.
The Volkswagen Eos will also seat 4 and has many premium features, but it is just not as easy to live with as the all- Buick Cascada.
Both of these cars are convertibles that can seat 4, but the Eos has a folding hard top, while the Buick is a traditional soft-top convertible. With the top up, the VW doesn’t look much different than many other cars on the street, and the structure of the top limits rear seat and trunk space when it’s folded away. The Cascada has a classic soft-top look and more interior space thanks to the more compact mechanism. Both cars offer power roof adjustments, but the Buick does it in a few ticks more than 15 seconds and at speeds up to 30mph, while the VW needs almost 30 seconds.
Another downside of the hard top Eos is the amount of trunk space it takes up. With the top up the Buick has room for about 13 cubic feet of luggage. Even with the top folded you still have almost 10 cubic feet, which is more than you get in the Eos with the top up. Fold the top down on the VW and you only have about 7 cubic feet.
The VW Eos has been on the market since 2006, and this is the last year they will sell it. The Buick Cascada is all-new and features the latest tech features. Standard equipment includes OnStar with Wi-Fi hotspot, 7” touchscreen IntelliLink system, smartphone apps, rearview camera, and voice recognition. The Eos offers a 5” touchscreen, and many of those other features are only on upper trim levels or aren’t available at all. The Buick gets the latest safety tech too, like lane departure and blind spot monitor, and forward collision mitigation system.
Any convertible is great for cruising the coast, but the 2016 Buick Cascada makes a practical road trip car and daily driver, too. Come see the newest member of the Buick family at Gainesville Buick GMC, serving Lake City, Newberry, Palatka, and Ocala, FL.View Inventory
