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.
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.
