The ADAM S is equipped with a special version of the 1.4 Turbo ECOTEC engine with 150hp and 220Nm of torque, paired with a manual six-speed gearbox. This variant was developed specifically for the ADAM S and allowed a 50% output and 70% torque increased compared to the natural 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine.

Equipped with the Start/Stop system, the new ADAM S fulfills the Euro 6 emissions standard, with an average consumption of 6.4l/100km and emissions of 149g/km of CO2.

To increase the dynamics of the ADAM S, Opel used a 'performance' chassis with specific suspension and electronic systems calibrations designed to increase the response of the car. It also contributes to the direction with the new mapping service. In terms of brakes Opel Performance Center has developed a system with four large discs.

In terms of design the ADAM S gets larger bumpers, side skirts and an oval exhaust tip. The spoiler rear extension placed on the roof and the 'ADAM S' signature in the C-pillars complete the look.

Inside, the front seats can have four different shapes and decorations, three of which are unique for the ADAM S. One of these options comes in the form of Recaro sports bucket seats, which can be lined with leather. Based on the "Red 'n Roll" theme, red is the predominant color in the details, and can optionally extend to the steering wheel, gearbox lever and handbrake handle trimming.

The standard equipment includes daytime running lights and LED rear lights, air conditioning with electronic control and IntelliLink infotainment system, compatible with Android or Apple iOS handsets, and able to integrate into the car module functions that run on mobile devices. The IntelliLink offers USB and Bluetooth connections, audio streaming, seven speakers and a polychromatic 7-inch high-definition touch screen.
