The Opel Adam will have its market launch in Europe early 2013 and will be based on a shortened platform of the future Corsa model. The Adam measures 3.7 meters long, which is approximately 15 centimeters longer than the Volkswgen Up.

The Adam will debut a new engine family which includes three- and four-cylinder units ranging from 1.0- to 1.4-liters. The Euro-6 compliant engines will feature direct injection resulting in a 10 percent increase in fuel economy. Later in the Adam's production cycle Opel will introduce a new 1.6-liter in both diesel and petrol turbocharged versions.

In an effort to attract a younger consumer, the Adam will be quite stylish and feature lifestyle gadgets such as iPod integration.
