Paris Motor Show LIVE: Opel Adam is smiling at us image

Opel has presented the all-new Adam model in a world premiere at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and the smallest vehicle in the company’s lineup managed to attract a lot of curious eyes.

The all-new Opel Adam has been unveiled a couple of months ago but now the model is being placed into the spotlights once again with the German based automaker presenting it to the public at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. The Opel Adam, which is the smallest model in the company’s lineup, will be launched across the Old Continent by the end of the year where it has to battle models like the Volkswagen Up!.

Opel says that the Adam will be offered, at first, 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.
