Opel Adam Rocks up at Geneva

BIGGER, BETTER ADAM? Opel is set to debut its Adam Rocks concept at the Geneva auto show. The automaker claims the car is taller and wider than the Adam.

LONDON, England - Opel is set to wow Geneva show-goers in February 2013 with its Adam Rocks concept, an urban mini-crossover that could open a new segment in the industry.

Compared to the Adam, officially revealed at the Paris auto show in September 2012, the new Rocks is said to be taller, wider, tougher and yet more compact in appearance. It showcases unique personalisation – the current production model has more than a million specification and trim combinations.

'URBAN-CHIC'

Malcolm Ward, Opel lead design director, said: “With even bolder design than any other Adam, the Rocks shows the vast potential for personalisation our urban-chic newcomer offers. It combines the toughness of a crossover with the coolness of open air driving.”

Its new crossover's body style is supported by a chassis raised 15mm with a 20mm wider stance. The inspiration for this sporty crossover concept is agile parkour athletes, who move from one place to another, negotiating urban obstacles in between.

The Adam is unlikely to come to South Africa any time soon. “There are no current plans to bring the Opel Adam to market here in SA,” GMSA said when the car was first seen in July 2012.
