Production-ready Vauxhall Adam Rocks revealed ahead of Geneva debut

Roughly a year ago, Opel/Vauxhall showed us the Adam Rocks concept at the Geneva Motor Show.

Here is the production ready Adam Rocks, that will debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show, staying very similar to the concept with rugged, outdoor looks and electric folding canvas roof.

The Adam Rocks is also the first Vauxhall to get the new 113bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine. The same engine is also offered with 88bhp. Other engine choices include a 70bhp 1.2-litre four-cylinder and 1.4-litre with 86bhp and 98bhp.

Engines are mated to an all-new six-speed manual gearbox.

Compared with other members of the compact Adam models, the Rocks is taller, wider and tougher in appearance, while also offering a full-length electric folding three-layer canvas roof in a choice of three exterior colours – Black, Sweet Coffee or Light Oak.

Compared to the standard model, the chassis is raised 15mm and re-tuned – including dampers, springs, the rear suspension geometry, and steering.

All this rides on choice of 17-inch or 18-inch alloy wheels.

Interior updates include new trims and instrument cluster, as well as integration of Apple iOS devices into the system enabling Siri Eyes Free voice control.

Pricing details will be announced when it goes on sale in the summer, with production to start in August.
