    OpEd: 2018 Buick Cascada MCE

    Since it just got introduced here in the States but no longer aligns with the now "new" established look set forth with the Buick Avenir and Avista concepts and the revised LaCrosse, the Cascada needs a refresh. Already having been in Europe a few years I don't see why Buick Global wouldn't go ahead and recommend this kind of a update for 2018.

    This chop illustrates how a quick tune up on the front end could bring it into alignment:

    Revised Grille


    Current (Euro - spec)

    The grille looks good even if a tad too big IMO.

    are you taking requests, camaro_freak?

    make the smaller grille wider, out to the headlites BUT
    then make the headlites HIDDEN you can leave the litepipes (& your hat) on
