Opel Astra Cabrio to Be Called Cascada, First Images Released

We knew that the open-top version of the Astra J won’t be called Astra Cabrio, since the carmaker wants to create a model with its own identity, not just a hatchback without a roof. Now, Opel is telling us that the vehicle will be called Cascada (this means "waterfall" in Spanish).

In addition to that, the carmaker has also released the first images of the car, but these are rather teasers than actual photos, since the only reveal the upper part of the car. However, if we add these to the latest set of spyshots, we ca get a more complete image of the upcoming vehicle.

The Cascada will measure 4.7 meters in length and will come with a soft top that can be folded up to a speed of 50 km/h (31 mph). The vehicle rides on GM’s Delta II architecture, coming with tech goodies borrowed from the new Asta GTC, such as the HiPerStrut front suspension and the Watt link rear axle.

Opel has chose to unveil the Cascada in the first part of 2013, skipping the Paris Motor Show, where the company will debut the Adam city car.
