Vauxhall Cascada dies as remaining stock is sold

The Vauxhall Cascada is no longer available in the UK or Ireland, after it was axed earlier this year. 

Vauxhall continued to offer the Cascada while stocks remained, but the decision to withdraw the car from sale was made earlier in the year following poor sales and a renewed focus on SUVs. The model remains available in other European markets as the Opel Cascada. 

The Cascada found only 220 homes in the UK in 2017. At its peak, during the first full year after its introduction, Vauxhall shifted 850 Cascadas. 

The C-segment convertible market has shrunk considerably since its peak last decade, with only premium offerings such as the Audi A3 convertible and BMW 2 Series convertible remaining; once, many mainstream manufacturers had an entrant in the segment. Past rivals of the Cascada include convertible versions of the Ford Focus, Peugeot 308 and Renault Mégane, all of which have already gone off sale.

The Cascada is the latest in a slew of Vauxhall models to be cut amid poor sales. A few weeks ago, the SUV-like Adam Rocks supermini was clipped for being too slow-selling, while the GTC and Zafira Tourer also got the chop this year, with the growing SUV segment taking the blame.
