According to Autocar, the new Cascada convertible which will debut next year will have a new 1.6-liter with an aluminum block and SIDI (spark ignition direct injection) technology, which will make it much more efficient.

The base model will be called Eco Sport, producing 170 PS (168 bhp or 125 kW) plus 280 Nm of torque (206 lb-ft). The more powerful version will produce a much more impressive 200 PS (197 bhp or 147 kW0 and 286 Nm or (211 lb-ft) of torque.

The Cascada will borrow its platform from the Astra hatch but will be much longer. All the best suspension parts used for the GTC will be carried over.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
