This unique car is a Holden Cascada with a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine with 170 hp. The elegant convertible in Deep Sky Blue is intended for the Australian market.
The production of Holden Astras and Cascadas for Australia and New Zealand started in the Gliwice plant in February of this year and is a part of the recently announced strategy to strengthen the cooperation between Opel and other GM brands. In addition, at the end of the year the production of the Buick Cascada, designed for the North American market, will begin.

We are a very well integrated and experienced team, and that help us achieve our goal of producing world-class vehicles," said Andrzej Korpak, GM Manufacturing Poland managing director.
The two millionth car of the Gliwice plant represents the comprehensive experience and flexibility of the local team, while currently produces five models on one assembly line. The first car, the Astra Classic, was produced in Gliwice on August 31, 1998.
Over the years, the Gliwice team has built an excellent reputation by assembling high-quality cars including the small city car Opel Agila, four generations of the compact Astra and the Zafira compact minivan. Currently, the plant produces the elegant Cascada and compact Astra in four body versions.
