HIGH-TECH FOR A HIGH PERFORMER.

The Opel ADAM has all the technology to back up its fresh, urban attitude. It doesn’t only make the ride easier, but even more unique.

Parking just got fun

City driving doesn’t have to burn a hole in your pocket. The ADAM’s Start/Stop System optimises fuel savings – especially in city traffic. When the car comes to a standstill in neutral, the engine automatically stops, only starting again when you put your foot on the clutch. The system can be easily activated or deactivated via a button on the instrument panel.

 

 

 

 

When the system is active and the engine is stopped, the rev-counter needle points to the ‘AUTOSTOP’ position to signal readiness for automatic start. In order to provide reliable engine restarts, the system uses an optimised generator, starter and a specific battery.

Cruise through the city

Enjoying a perfect ride in the city is as easy as flipping a switch. To reduce steering effort at low speeds, power assistance to the steering is increased in City Mode –activated via a switch on the dashboard.

Stop and save

The Start/Stop System further optimizes fuel savings especially in city traffic. The engine stops when the car comes to a standstill with transmission in neutral and starts instantly as soon as the clutch pedal is activated again.The system can be activated/deactivated via a button on the instrument panel.

 

 

 

 

 

When the system is active and the engine is stopped, the rev-counter needle goes to the labeled “AUTOSTOP” position to signal readiness for automatic start.In order to provide reliable engine restarts, the Start/Stop System uses an optimized generator, starter, and a specific battery.


Fuel-speed steering

By using inputs from EPS® and multiple vehicle systems to determine the appropriate response to various conditions, the EPS® software of ADAM can add or subtract torque to the steering system, independent of driver input. This results in a more pleasant driving experience with reduced driver workload and increased precision feel.

 

The active Lead/Pull Compensation software provides a torque assistance on the steering wheel to compensate for influences from roads or sturdy cross-winds.

 

Additional software enhances the responsiveness and feel of the steering when the steering wheel is approximately centered. By applying torque to compensate for mechanical friction in the steering, the steering wheel has a higher tendency to return to the center position when slightly deflected. The result is better steering feel and straight-line stability.

Easily change lanes

The ultrasonic-based Side Blind Zone Alert keeps you safe by screening the blind spots to the side of your vehicle. It warns you when it detects potential danger, helping to avoid a collision and giving you one less thing to worry about.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How it works:

  • Ultrasonic sensors with a range of 4m on both sides, detect objects in the blind sight angle of the driver
  • When passing a vehicle or being passed, an LED is lit in the applicable right or left outside mirror, (as long a the vehicle is in the range of the sensors)
  • If the indicator is set to change to a lane where a vehicle is detected, the LED starts to flash
  • Active up to 140km/h

No going backwards

ADAM comes standard with Hill Start Assist, allowing you stress-free parking or pulling away on a slope - without having to use the handbrake. When you take your foot off the brake, it maintains brake pressure for up to 2 seconds, preventing you from rolling backwards.

Blowing hot and cold

No matter what the temperature is outside, the ADAM GLAM has just the right thing to make you feel comfortably at home. The GLAM’s Electronic Climate Control (ECC) is easy to operate and ensures the climate is just right. The ECC operates along the principle of predictive and adaptive equation models. A first in the industry, this makes ADAM unique in terms of climate comfort.
