Tough and compact - an "urban mini-crossover" concept from Opel/Vauxhall

Opel/Vauxhall will show its 'ADAM ROCKS' concept at the Geneva Motor Show next month. GM's European mid-market brands say it is an urban mini-crossover that could open up a new segment in the industry.

Compared with the production Adam, Rocks is taller, wider and offers a cabrio roof. Opel/Vauxhall says it showcases how Adam's personalisation – the current production model has over a million different specification and trim combinations – could be taken one step further.

“With even bolder design than any other Adam, the Rocks shows the vast potential for personalisation our stylish urban-chic newcomer offers. It combines the toughness of a crossover with the coolness of open air driving,” said Malcolm Ward, Opel\Vauxhall Lead Design Director. 

“As a symbol for fashion-led, active drivers wanting to stand out from the crowd, Adam Rocks is just one possible answer to the question of how new development paths for this unique car could be forged.”

The Adam Rocks' new crossover body style is supported by a chassis that is raised 15mm with a 20mm wider stance. Agile parkour athletes, who move from one place to another, negotiating urban obstacles in between, were the inspiration for this sporty crossover concept, Opel\Vauxhall says.
