Opel Adam Rocks Arrives in Showrooms Next Month, Adam Secures 100,000 Orders

When Opel put the Adam in production two years ago, the tiny city car had to meet very high expectations. The model carries many of the manufacturer's hopes and dreams into one little make-or-break package. However, after two years on sale, Opel's bet proved to be spot on with the city dweller, which has been ordered more than 100,000 times to this moment.

The model bearing the company founder's name has racked up that figure in just 18 months since the order books opened. Although the three and four-pot petrol engines varying from 1 to 1.4 liters aren't enough to get our petrolhead juices flowing, the Adam's Ace of Spades comes in the form of over one million distinct specification and trim combos.

That's a lot of personalization available for the usual A-segment driver, greatly focused on style and individuality. Think about this type of buyer as the kind that wants its car to reflect his or her personality as much as possible, so that tartan pattern roof & co. are the real clinchers here. In addition to the landmark sales moment, Opel & British sister brand Vauxhall announced that the crossover-styled Adam Rocks will hit European showrooms next month and will be offered with the all-new 1-liter EcoTec three-pot turbo that packs 115 PS and 170 Nm (125 lb-ft) of torque.

Niches. That's the byword of auto industry these days. And guess what: the Opel Adam Rocks is marketed as the world's first urban mini three-door crossover. Does anybody care? Not sure about that, but we do expect that future owners will boast to their buddies about that 'til one of them will step up and explain that nobody cares. A detail that really matters on a lifestyle car such as the upcoming Opel Adam Rocks is the full-length folding canvas roof a la the Fiat 500C and Citroen DS3 Cabrio.
