2016 Opel Adam Rocks S

Previously, when an Opel Adam enthusiast wanted to buy a sporty
Opel Adam, they would turn to the Adam S and when they desired
a rugged and more competent Adam, they would turn to the Adam
Rocks.

But there was a group of buyers left out in the dark, those
looking for a sporty and yet competent Adam. To satisfy such
customers, Opel decided join the two models together and offer
customers a taste of both worlds. The product is the Adam Rocks
S.

2016 Opel Adam Rocks S Exterior

The exterior profile of the 2016 Opel Adam Rocks S is a perfect
combination of rugged and adventurous styling with a sporty
performance that creates a whole new personality for the Opel
Adam. The look is enhanced by well defined contours of the side
sills and a protective cladding which give it a purposeful
appearance.

To add to the experience is a “swing top canvas roof” which
opens in 5 seconds. The roof is offered in five colors which
contrast with the 11 body colors offered for the Adam Rocks S
2016. Other features include a lowered suspension and extended
rear bumper which is integrated with a sports exhaust pipe.

2016 Opel Adam Rocks S Interior

The interior styling of the Adam Rocks S is adapted from the
Adam S. The only equipment adapted from the Adam Rocks is the
fabric roof. The roof is mounted to create the impression of
riding in a convertible. The roof is operated by a touch of a
button and can open and close with speeds of up to 140 km/h.

The small hatchback accommodates four passengers on Recaro
sports seats. However, while the driver and the front passenger
will experience a sufficient leg room, the same cannot be said
for the rear passengers. In fact, if the driver is taller than
1.85 meters, the Opel Adam Rocks S becomes a three-seater car.
When the rear bench is up, the cabin offers a 170 L cargo space
which expands to 663 L upon folding the bench.

Other features include a multifunction steering wheel and an
IntelliLink infotainment system integrated with a 7-inch
touch-screen display. The infotainment system links iOS and
Android phones with the car. For safety, the hatchback features
Blind spot alert, advanced park assist, bolstered seatbelts and
a package of airbags among others.

Engine Specs and Performance

The 2016 Opel Adam Rocks S comes with a single drive-train. The
unit is a turbocharged 1.4 L, Ecotec gasoline engine that comes
good with 150 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

The engine has an impressive fuel economy which is rated at
39.8 mpg on combined drives. It is paired to a 6-speed manual
gearbox which channels power to the front wheels only.

The engine pushes the car to make the 0-60 mph dash in 8.5
seconds and can reach a top speed of 130 mph though no one will
be crazy enough to push the Rock S to that limit.
