Adam up(S) its game

20.01.2015

News of a performance version of the Opel Adam couldn't have come at a better time as here at Autodealer, we are currently piloting our way around Johannesburg in the standard Adam. Unlike other fast Opel models, the hot Adam will not bear the OPC logo but rather a tame “S” logo to distinguish itself as a different model.

Customised sportiness

Much like the standard car, the S variant offers a range of interior and exterior colours, materials and design options that enable its owner to customize according to his/her taste. The performance Adam also receives cosmetic updates in the form of a front lip spoiler, a rear spoiler and an extended rear bumper cut-out with a visible exhaust pipe, while 17-inch wheels are standard. On the inside, customers can tailor their Adam S with optional features such the checkered flag headliner design or Recaro performance seats.

Connectivity still present

The S maintains the IntelliLink infotainment system with USB, Bluetooth connectivity, audio streaming, six speakers and a 7-inch high-resolution colour touch-screen.

Standard kit

You’ll get things like electronic climate control, tinted Solar Protect heat insulation glazing at the rear and vanity mirrors for both the driver and the front passenger as standard with a plethora of optional features such as Advanced Park Assist as an option.

Under the hood

Powering the little machines is the familiar 1.4-litre Turbo ECOTEC engine which in this guise produces 110kW/220Nm which is reined in by a s tuned chassis and is also claimed to use just 5.9 litres/100km. The top speed remains fairly low at 210 km/h which is due to the gearing which should help it scamper to 100 km/h in a respectable amount of time.

Chassis and brakes

Engineers tuned the chassis and steering to make the car more dynamic. The rear axle has been redesigned and a specific spring/damper set-up further enhances the dynamic handling. In the braking department the S gets the braking system from the previous generation Corsa OPC.
