Opel’s booth was dominated by the brand’s smallest model, the Adam. It gained a new crossover-flavored model, the Adam Rocks and a study called Adam S.
The production version of the Opel Adam Rocks stayed true to the concept, retaining the raised ground clearance and more rugged looks. It sits 15mm higher than the regular Adam and has a wider stance and rolls on newly designed 17 or 18 inch alloy wheels.
The city car also brings two new interior trims and new exterior colors, while also inaugurating Opel’s brand new 3-cylinder 1.0-liter turbocharged engine, available in two outputs, 90PS (89hp) and 115PS (113hp).
The Opel Adam S on the other hand will just be a concept for the moment, but is expected to become a production model sooner rather than later. It is powered by a 1.4 liter 4 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine producing 148hp and 220 Nm or torque.

Unless the light is proving to be a nuisance while driving or it’s combining with a beeping stay away from the mechanics. Read more
Winter can be a tough season for car dealerships in colder climates as the bad weather dampens many customers’ enthusiasm for taking test drives, surprise storms cause people to cancel their appointments and avoid leaving the house, and people worry about damaging a new purchase in the elements. President’s Day sales offer some reprieve as great deals and the thought of spring approaching encourage many to get out to the lot, but between New Year’s Eve and President’s Day, it’s often a quiet time for dealerships.
