Opel and Vauxhall have revealed online the production version of the Adam Rocks concept slated to go on sale this summer.
Vauxhall and Opel are describing their latest product as an "urban mini-crossover" featuring a rugged exterior appearance combined with a full-length electric folding canvas roof. The model is taller and wider compared to the regular variant and has received several chassis tweaks such as the updated springs, dampers, steering and rear suspension geometry. It can be fitted with 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels offered with new wheel clips in "Wild" design and several hues.
The rugged exterior looks are provided by the protective cladding which has an anthracite finish while the front trapezoidal grille has a chrome central bar and has been embedded in the cladding. We also notice a roof spoiler, LED daytime running lights, several satin chrome inserts on the fog lamp and indicator elements, along with a fresh new yellow paint called Goldbusters.
The aforementioned electric folding canvas roof has a three-layer fabric and can be operated through a button installed in the headliner's front area and needs just five seconds to fold back on the C-pillars.
Under the hood is the recently announced 3-cylinder, 1.0-liter ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo engine with 115 HP (85 kW) and 166 Nm (122 lb-ft) sent to the front axle through a newly developed six-speed manual transmission. Opel and Vauxhall will also offer the other engines you can find in the regular Adams, including the naturally-aspirated 1.2-liter with 70 HP (51 kW) and the 1.4-liter with 87 HP (64 kW) and 100 HP (73 kW) along with a 90 HP (66 kW) version of the new 3-cylinder.
Set to make public debut next month in Geneva, production of the Opel Adam Rocks is programmed to commence in August at the firm's factory in Eisenach, Germany.
