Opel Adam Cabrio might debut in Geneva next year image

The German based automaker Opel is planning to develop a convertible version of the Adam which is expected to be officially presented to the public at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

Rumors on Opel developing the Adam Cabrio have been around almost since the model was officially presented to the public a couple of months ago, during the 2012 Paris Motor Show, but this new rumor is saying that the final production version of the model will make its public debut next year, at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, in March. The model won’t be a real convertible but it will be something similar to the Fiat 500C or to the Citroen DS3 Cabrio.

Additional details on the Opel Adam Cabrio are limited for the moment, but as a quick reminder, the regular version of the Opel Adam is getting three petrol efficient engines, the 1.2 liter with 70 HP, the 1.4 liter with 87 HP and the 1.4 liter with 100 HP, mated to a five-speed manual transmission. All units will get the ecoFLEX technology package and the start/stop system which is helping cut down CO2 emissions and improve fuel consumption. The Opel Adam will eventually receive a whole new engine lineup specially made for it, with turbochargers and direct injections, mate to new six-speed manual transmissions. The new 1.0 liter turbocharged unit will also become available on the Adam eventually.
