Opel ADAM - Chassis & Drive Dynamics


ADAM isn’t just another copy. It stands out. Thanks to the well-balanced chassis, superior handling, comfort and precise steering, a drive in the ADAM is a true adventure.


Go-Kart feeling

The ADAM has combined agile handling with real driving comfort and taken it to the next level. Hop in and feel the benefit of its low center of gravity and advanced chassis technology, optimised for the short wheelbase.


The McPherson Strut front suspension, with spring rates selected to reduce pitch angle during braking, fully complements the direct steering and helps to deliver excellent response and precision. At the rear, the torsion beam axle has a specific torsion profile that reduces body roll and ensures stability. The benefit is an ultra-smooth ride with outstanding, all-round agility.

Take it easy

The Opel ADAM comes standard with two steering modes. Tour Mode gives you direct steering response and feedback while City Mode, activated by a switch on the dashboard, reduces steering effort at low speeds and whilst parking by increasing power.

Feel the power

The all-new, 3-cylindar 1.0l Turbo ECOTEC® engine gives the ADAM JAM & ADAM GLAM pace without waste. With direct injection, they pump out 170Nm torque at 4000 rpm and 85 kW (115hp). Thanks to a brand new, state-of-the-art, 6-speed gearbox, the ADAM puts the Euro 6 compliant power exactly where you want it.


*Drivers can also choose from the low maintenance, high output 1.4l engine.
