Opel Adam Cabrio to hit the market soon image

The German based automaker Opel is planning to launch a convertible version of the Adam which should battle with the Fiat 500C.

After it was officially presented to the public for the first time during the 2012 Paris Motor Show last month, the Opel Adam is ending up in our news once again, this time with a rumor which is saying that the model is expected to get a convertible version in 2013 or 2014. The Opel Adam Cabrio will get a fabric roof and in order to maximize the cargo space, the rear window could fold down and lay flat above the trunk. Engine options are expected to be carried over from its hardtop brother.

At the beginning, the regular version of the Opel Adam with 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. More details on the Opel Adam will be announced close to its launch.
