The Adam Rocks is one of the first cars Opel has premiered, along with the Adam R2 rally car, the Cascada convertible and the Zafira Tourer 1.6 CDTI.

According to the manufacturer, there are no less than 61,000 exterior and 82,000 interior configurations on the Adam. There will be even more options for Adam Rocks, intended for drivers seeking some escapism. This urban crossover project resembles Renault’s Captur, which was also presented at Geneva. 

Opel also presented the competitive version of its city car, the Adam Rally R2, in Geneva. Designed for rally car drivers, it is officially recognised all over Europe.

Prices will start at €29,990 (RM120,000). 

Lastly, Opel has launched its new most efficient diesel engine, the 1.6 CDTI Ecotec, on the Zafira Tourer people carrier. This new unit delivers 136hp with combined cycle fuel efficiency of 4.1 l/100km and carbon emission levels of 109g/km. — AFP/Relaxnews
