Vauxhall's Cascada images released

Vauxhall has released the initial teaser shots of the brand's first mid-size convertible to be built completely in-house since the 1930s.

The soft-top Cascada, as it will be named, is shown in the photos looking superimposed on to two different backgrounds.

The vehicle's development follows the demise of Vauxhall's Tigra convertible supermini in recent years, and marks the brands expansion into a larger vehicle class of convertible.

Indeed, the firm boasts that the Cascada is 7cm longer than an Audi A5 convertible.

With a roof which can be electrically opened and closed while travelling at up to 30mph and fabric that has been selected for its aesthetic value rather than cost factors, the Cascada has luxury features that may appeal to a wide bracket of potential buyers.

Despite going on sale in early 2013, the car will not be shown at this month's Paris Motor Show. Instead, the company's new Adam supermini will take centre stage.
