Vauxhall Announced Its New MINI Rival: Named ‘Adam’
Ahead of its official launch in 2013, Vauxhall has revealed the name of its new MINI rival. Official sources from Vauxhall has announced that the name of its new MINI rival would be ‘Adam’ (previously codenamed as ‘Junior‘). The leaked images of the new ‘Adam’ will provide you with a better idea of how the new model will look. According to the firm, the new vehicle will be getting a “sporty and muscular design”, which is likely to draw on some of the firm’s well-known styling cues, including the blade motif on the flanks and the ‘eagle eye’ headlights that is visible through the heavy camouflage on the car.
The all-new Adam will only be offered in a three-door, four-seat model measuring about 3.70 metres in length, which is almost the same as the 3.72m MINI hatch. The main focus of the new vehicle is set to be on customization, and an insider reveals “there are around 10,000 different variants of paint and interior trim; you won’t see two alike on the road”. Starting from headlining to the floor mats, everything in Adam is customizable.
Powered by an array of efficient small petrol and diesel turbo engines, as well as a new three-cylinder engine, the Adam will use the chassis from the forthcoming Corsa. The vehicle will be debuted at September’s Paris Motor Show and Vauxhall said the Adam will hit the markets early in 2013 and should have a starting price of just over £10,000, placing it in Fiat 500 territory.
