Is This Buick’s New Convertible?

GM offers tease of new Vauxhall Cascada.

The first new midsize convertible for Vauxhall since the 1930s might also become a new droptop in the Buick line-up.

There are some definite benefits to going global, especially if you’re a small brand long starved of product.  So is the case with Buick, which not all that long ago had to suffer through life with just three aging product lines but is now rapidly fleshing out its showroom.

And there are signs that the next model to come aboard will be a Buick droptop.
