Adam Rocks

A year after unveiling the Adam Rocks concept Opel launches the production version of the mini-crossover that combines the open-roof driving pleasure and the versatility of a robust car.

The latest Adam is 3.74 meters in length, making it perfect for urban driving, and is equipped with a full sunroof. The bodywork has all-around protections and the suspension is 15 mm higher. Opel's designers developed new decorative elements and chose new fabrics specifically for the seats of the new variant. The trapezoidal grille is still traversed by the chrome bar that holds the Opel logo, but is now integrated with the protective pieces. The daytime running lights and LED rear optical groups are another feature of the new Adam Rocks. The lower protection section of the front and rear bumpers, as well as the chrome exhaust exit complete the look of the city mini-crossover.

The full sunroof Swing Top, made ​​of fabric, is part of the standard equipment. It has an electric command and opens up to the C-pillars, in just five seconds. This creates a large opening roof without damaging the features of the rigid bodywork or car functionality.

In addition to many innovations, such as the automatic parking system Park Assist, the new Adam Rocks also receives the new generation of IntelliLink infotainment.

The other cabin is decorated in black, lined with dark brown and blue stitching in the seats.

Partnership between Opel and Lutzman was terminated in 1901 and Adam Opel’s son initiated a new contract with the French carmaker Darracq that allowed the German company to built Opel-Darracq cars. These cars received their chassis from Darracq and their bodies from Opel.
