New for 2016: Buick

After a decades-long hiatus, a drop-top convertible has rejoined the Buick lineup in the form of the 2016 Cascada. Offering seating for up to four passengers and drawing power from a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the Cascada aims to broaden the brand’s appeal beyond models like the Regal, Verano, and LaCrosse sedans, all of which carry over into 2016 with only minor updates. Also returning for 2016 is the Encore small crossover, now available in more powerful Sport Touring guise, and the full-size 3-row Buick Enclave with its new bronze-accented Tuscan Edition.
