For the third consecutive year, Buick set a new global sales record on sales of more than 1.2 million vehicles.
Last year’s record was 1,170,115 total vehicles, which was surpassed in mid-December thanks to record sales in China and strong crossover performances in the United States.
In the US, crossover sales increased by 3% across the industry. A whopping 40% of all new vehicles sold in the country are crossovers. The automaker has been tapping into that expanding market with capable vehicles like the Encore and Enclave, which together accounted for 60% of the Buick’s annual sales in the US. In fact, the Encore has been setting record sales for the last 23 straight months.
Sales are expected to continue rising throughout 2016 at Crawford Buick GMC. We anticipate the arrival of the Cascada convertible and the new 2017 LaCrosse, as well as the all-new Envision compact crossover that has been all the rage in China.
Here at Crawford Buick GMC, we can’t wait to get our hands on the all-new 2016 Buick Cascada. This beautiful convertible will be coming to our showroom early next year. Buick has announced pricing for the 2016 Cascada and it will start at $33,990.
That is a great price. In fact, it is $3,535 less than the 2016 Audi A3 Cabriolet. And, even with that price difference, you’ll get a standard, more powerful engine, standard heated front seats, and a standard heated steering wheel. Just imagine what you could buy with an extra $3,000 in your pocket.
“Cascada expands Buick’s lineup with a uniquely fun and personal driving experience,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick, in a statement. “With a lower price than key competitors, it also promises to shake up the segment – and look good doing it.”
Some of the Cascada’s other great standard features include an insulated electro-hydraulic power roof that lowers in just 17 seconds, even while driving at speeds up to 31 mph. You’ll also get remote start, a Rear Vision camera, Rear Park Assist, dual-zone climate control, and so much more.
Are you ready to experience Buick’s first convertible in 25 years?
