Billed as the world’s first "urban mini crossover", the Adam Rocks blends Opel’s pint-sized city car with traditional SUV styling cues and minor off-road enhancements.

The Opel Adam Rocks is heavily inspired by the identically named concept that debuted at last year’s Geneva motor show. The production model retains the concept’s 15mm-raised ride height, lower body plastic protector panels, front and rear metallic scuff plates and folding canvas roof. Subtle changes include a new grille pattern and fog light design, a repositioned exhaust outlet, and trim tweaks inside the cabin.

The Adam Rocks features Opel’s IntelliLink connectivity system, which allows app-style integration of Apple and Android smartphones and access to navigation, internet radio, Siri Eyes Free and text-to-voice/voice-to-text SMS functions.

The Adam Rocks introduces the brand’s new turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which produces either 66kW or 85kW of power and 166Nm of torque and boasts a claimed combined cycle consumption of 4.3 litres per 100km. Both versions of the engine are paired with a new-generation six-speed manual transmission.

Three naturally aspirated four-cylinder engines – a 51kW/115Nm 1.2-litre, and 64kW/130Nm and 74kW/130Nm 1.4-litre units – will also be available.

The Opel Adam Rocks will debut at the Geneva motor show on March 4 before production begins in August.
