A Buick spokesman told Edmunds that the starting price of the base 2017 Cascada remains unchanged from 2016: $33,990, including the destination charge.
New for the 2017 model year, the Sport Touring edition will only be available in True Blue Metallic, a paint color that won't be offered on any other Cascada models.
Other Sport Touring features include five-spoke, 20-inch wheels, Black Magic interior trim components, UV-reflective leather-trimmed seats, sport pedals, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and a black soft top that Buick says can retract in 17 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph.
Like all Cascada models, the Sport Touring comes standard with such features as adaptive xenon headlights, rear parking assist, remote engine start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen display (with Buick's IntelliLink interface), smartphone integration, a rearview camera and OnStar with 4G LTE and Wi-Fi hot spot.
The standard powerplant for the Cascada is a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that puts out 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque and comes linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2017 Cascada Sport Touring edition was introduced this past weekend at the annual Mille Mitten rally, a 1,000-mile drive through the forests and around the lakes of northern Michigan.
Edmunds says: The new 2017 Buick Cascada Sport Touring edition provides a unique option for shoppers in the market for a four-seat convertible.
