Even though the Vauxhall Adam is named after its German twin’s founder, the British arm of General Motors felt it necessary to steal the ailing brand’s thunder, and release photos of their new city car – as if stealing production of the Astra wasn’t enough.
The Adam will offer two gasoline and one diesel engine, the most powerful of which tops out at 98 horsepower and 1.4L. The real draw apparently, is the customization aspect, with over 1 million possible trim and paint combinations available, which sounds like an absolute nightmare as far as production and ordering goes.Three basic trim levels, dubbed JAM, GLAM and SLAM are available (yes, really).
Pricing should be in line with the Fiat 500 and Mini Cooper. We’re not getting it, and that’s ok. It looks like a Geely-fied take on the 500 mated with a Citroen DS3, and the Adam SLAM sounds like something that arrives at your door in a plain brown wrapper.
