A crossover concept based on the Vauxhall Adam city car has been previewed in these official sketches, ahead of the car's world premiere at next month's Geneva motor show.
The Luton manufacturer describes the Vauxhall Adam Rocks as 'an urban mini-crossover'. Compared to the production version of the Adam city car, the concept's chassis has been raised by 15mm and it has been given a 20mm wider stance.
The sketches also suggest the Adam Rocks will feature hard-wearing body cladding on the wheel arches and bumpers, front and rear skid plates and a central exhaust.
The Adam Rocks also possesses a fabric retractable roof in a similar style to the Citroën DS3 Cabrio and Fiat 500C. Vauxhall/Opel sources recently confirmed to Autocar that a cabriolet version of the Adam is under development.
Vauxhall says the new concept's purpose is to highlight the myriad personalisation options available on the Adam.
“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, lead design director for Vauxhall/Opel.
