Vauxhall have revealed the pricing and spec for the new off-road version of the Vauxhall Adam, and we kid you not its called Adam Rocks Air.
To give the Adam its mini-SUV off-road toughness, Vauxhall have added 17-inch or 18-inch alloys to the range, increased the ride height, added beefy looking front and rear skid plates, and increased the width by 15mm due to those moulded-plastic wheel arches. The dampers, springs, rear suspension and steering have all been reworked.
The Adam Rocks Air will also be the first Vauxhall to get the company’s new 1.0-litre, three cylinder petrol/gasoline turbo engine, the unit churns out 115bhp and can return a combined 55mpg thanks to its 6-speed transmission.
The current engine line up of the 1.4 and 1.2, 4-cylinder engines will continue to be used and remain unchanged, these engines are mated to a 5-speed transmission.
Options include Vauxhall’s IntelliLink infotainment system for £275 which integrates Android and Apple operability and includes USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
Electric Power Steering and a City mode come as standard, City mode increases the rev limit at the touch of a button for improved throttle response at low revs. Hill start Assist is standard whereas Park Assist and Blind Spot Assist are optional, electric climate control costs and additional £300.
Interior details include two new trims bespoke to the Adam Rocks Air range. If you wondered why the word Air is included in the branding the convertible fabric roof top might answer your question.
And if you ever wondered what goes on in marketing meetings, and wanted to be a fly on the wall then Adam Rocks Air name tag is the reason why these secrets are never revealed.
One curious issue we have about the Adam Rccks Air is that it only comes as in 2WD, so far as we know AWD isn’t available nor is it an option, so consider this to be style over function and more accustomed to gravel drive ways than mud.
The Adam Rocks Air, if that really is its real name, is available to order in the UK now with first deliveries beginning this month (September). The price starts at £14k.
