Vauxhall Adam - First Official Details & Pictures

Vauxhall has released its first official pictures of the new three-door four seat Adam, that will make its public debut at the Paris Motor Show in September. Order books open shortly after the debut with first cars reaching UK customers in January 2013.

Vauxhall calls Adam .. “an urban chic car that can be personalised in over a million different ways”. Not sure how many males such a statement draws to buy the Adam.

The Adam incorporates a ‘floating’ roof which is visually disconnected from the body, making good use of two-tone colour schemes.

Three ecoFLEX four-cylinder petrol engines will be offered from launch: a 70bhp 1.2-litre, plus two 1.4-litre engines with either 86bhp or 98bhp. All will be available with optional Start/Stop technology and will be mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Later in the future Adam will get the new-generation small petrol engine, featuring direct injection and forced induction, and an all-new six-speed gearbox.
