Opel has announced a series of updates to the Adam.

First and foremost, the car can now be equipped with a "Swing Top" canvas roof from the Adam Rocks. The model will cost €14,990 (including VAT) and come with a power retractable roof that opens in five seconds and can be closed at speeds of 140 km/h (87 mph).

Besides the retractable roof, the Adam gains a new Easytronic 3.0 automated transmission that combines the "advantages of a comfortable automatic transmission with the increased efficiency of a manual gearbox." Opel says the third-generation transmission has shorter response times and smooth gear shifts. The transmission will cost €600 and help to reduce fuel consumption and emissions by about eight percent.
