After being previewed in concept form at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the rugged Adam Rocks is now ready for production, and will make its debut at this year’s Geneva show.
Tagged as an urban mini-crossover, the Adam Rocks is said to have been inspired by parkour.
The chassis has been modified to give a 15mm higher ride height, with revised springs, dampers and steering.
Adding to the rugged look is grey cladding to the wheel-arches that extends into the front bumper and grille, where a pair of fog lights are framed in a chrome boomerang motif that’s echoed at the rear.
Front and rear skid-plates, a modest roof spoiler, and alloy wheels in 17- and 18-inch designs complete the look.
A series of new colours will be offered, including a new yellow called ‘Goldbusters.’
An electric folding roof will also make its appearance on the Adam Rocks for the first time.
Constructed from three layers, the middle neoprene layer offering additional weatherproofing, the roof folds back in five seconds. It’s available in three colours – Black, Sweat Coffee and Light Oak.
The interior sees revisions for the new Rocks model, including a new instrument cluster, and two new colour options will be offered – one is taken from last year’s concept car, and uses peanut-coloured seat fabric and door trims, while the other (dubbed Coffee Bean) uses dark brown seats with blue stitching.
The Adam Rocks will also be the first model to use Vauxhall’s new 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged EcoTec petrol engine. It’s produces 115PS and 166Nm of torque and is mated to a new six-speed manual transmission.
Pricing has yet to be announced, although production is due to start in August.
