Vauxhall’s urban mini-crossover, ADAM ROCKS, was previewed as
a concept at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. ADAM ROCKS’
new crossover body style is supported by a chassis that is raised 15mm with a
wider stance. Protective, anthracite-coloured cladding is wrapped tightly
around the ADAM ROCKS, giving it a tough, muscular look. The front trapezoidal
grille, with a chrome central brand bar, is embedded in the cladding, while
contrasting, satin chrome ‘boomerang’ elements frame the front fog
lamps/indicator housings and the reversing/fog lamps at the rear. An integrated
rear roof spoiler and LED daytime running lights also come as standard. Silver
skid plates front and rear and a bold chrome exhaust complete the exterior
design. New exterior paint colours will be introduced with ADAM ROCKS, starting
with the vibrant yellow Goldbusters.
ROCKS is the first model to feature
Vauxhall’s all-new 1.0-litre ECOTEC Direct Injection Turbo three-cylinder
engine. This high-tech pocket rocket raises the bar for three-cylinder engine
refinement and packs up to 113bhp, with impressive low-end torque of 166 Nm. Contributing
to the overall efficiency of the all-aluminium engine with a single scroll
turbocharger include direct injection, variable valve timing, a switchable
water pump and an integrated exhaust manifold. Fuel-saving Start/Stop
technology is an integral part of the system and offered as standard. The new
1.0 ECOTEC comes with a choice of two power outputs, 89bhp and 113bhp. Both
versions of the new 3-cylinder powerhouse are mated to an all-new six-speed
manual transmission with a compact package design.
