The said vehicle finally made its debut at the Geneva Auto Show in a metallic shade and we must say the car looked pretty good. Indeed, one can notice that the Rocks model is taller (15 mm taller), chunkier with a bit more aggressiveness, something we didn’t see in Vauxhall/Opel’s city cars until now.

Concerning the engine, the vehicle will be available with the company’s shiny new 1.0-litre ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo three-cylinder engine that promises up to 115 PS, with an impressive low-end torque of 166 Nm. What contributes to the overall efficiency of the engine is the direct injection plus the variable valve timing, the switchable water pump as well as the an integrated exhaust manyfold

Besides all of this, there is also a 1.2- litre engine with 70PS available plus a 1.4-litre four-cylinder one that comes with two power outputs, 87 PS (flex fuel) and 100 PS.

Moving on to the design part, besides the obvious exterior modifications such as the front trapezoidal grille, silver skid plates that are available in the front and rear, the Adam has many options available. Thus, drivers can take advantage of the new “peanut-colored” interior and the famous vibrant yellow paint job “Goldbusters.” The vehicle has definitely received an interesting upgrade, the rich dar brown seats in the black can trimmed with bright blue stitching looks quite delicious.

The car is rather perfect for summer as we’re talking about an electric folding canvas roof, operated via a button. When it comes to the folding canvas roof, drivers can choose between three exterior colors-Sweet Coffee or Light Oak and Black. Indeed, it does sound interesting and it will surely have an impact on drivers that are interested in purchasing a new funky city car.
