Opel / Vauxhall Adam, I know you have been waiting for this. Since I uploaded the photos of Adam to Instagram, I realised the huge curosity for Adam. I think, during the history of Opel / Vauxhall none of their cars ever ignited curiosity this much.
Most of the Opel / Vauxhall cars look a bit dull or to conservative to make you excited so much. However, Adam is totally different. It offers seven different light colours, proper personalisation from exterior colours to interior ambient lighting. Adam is a big step for Opel / Vauxhall, now they created a new path for the future vehicles. In other words, they put the bar so high their new cars should be better than the Adam!
Unfortunately, Adam is only available with 1.2-lt 70 PS, 1.4-lt 87 PS and 100 PS petrol engines coupled with pre-historic 5-speed manual. Opel / Vauxhall did a great job with Adam but 5-speed manual does not match with Adam’s harmony.
I am sure, more engines and better manual and automatic gearbox options will be available. I assume many people will not pay attention to these details :)
Opel/Vauxhall Adam is here! Adam is the mini car from Opel and they were a bit late for this segment. Opel is very well known for small cars but never introduced a car in mini segment to compete with Fiat 500 and Mini. I really don’t know why Opel hesitate to enter this market while they have a competitive power with Corsa.
So, Opel designed a very competitive car and named it as Adam. Honestly, I never liked the design of Opel cars. They are neither bad nor good! So, this makes Opel cars a bit conservative and boring. I really appreciate designs that are simple, elegant and tells you something about the car. And, Opel Adam does not look like a traditional Opel and looks really good! Adam is the best looking Opel for quite long time!
I am definitely sure that, Opel Adam will capture some of the mini segment with this competitive design. Even if a car offers so much technology and features, design is the most important factor for the purchase decision. And Opel did a very good job!
Opel Adam will be available with start/stop function; 1,2-lt petrol (69 PS) and 1,4-lt petrol (86 PS and 100 PS) and coupled with six-speed manual. I am sure Opel will offer a type of automatic transmission for Adam.
