In 2017, Vauxhall shifted just 138 Rocks models, despite the rising popularity of SUV-style superminis in recent months.
Vauxhall sold 7640 Adams in total last year, while it sold seven times this number of Corsas. Rocks models made up just one in every 55 Adams sold, meaning Vauxhall sold 382 times as many Corsas as Adam Rocks cars.
It’s the third model to be cut by Vauxhall this year, following the GTC and Zafira Tourer, although the Corsa diesel and VXR variants were also dropped from the line-up earlier this year as PSA tries to minimise costs and turn a profit from Vauxhall by 2020.
Adam Rocks models started at £17,065 for the entry-level 1.2-litre petrol version, making it £6015 more than the entry-level 1.4-litre Corsa, which is more frugal, emits less CO2 and has a slight power advantage.
