2013 is coming to a close, which means it’s time for the automotive magazines at large to hand out their respective annual awards. The Corvette Stingray and Cadillac CTS have been reoccurring names on the awards lists here in North America, and now over in Germany, the Opel Adam continues to receive some recognition.
For the second year in a row readers of the German motoring magazine, Auto Zeitung, voted for the Opel Adam as the top pick in the city cars category of the magazines Auto Trophy Awards. With 35.8 percent of the Votes, the Adam left its closest competitor, the Volkswagen Up!, trailing in its wake. The Up! captured 19.5 percent of the votes, with the ultra-efficient VW XL1 coming in third with 9.5 percent of the readers vote.
Opel Chairman Dr. Karl Thomas-Neumann accepted the award at the Auto Trophy awards gala last night in Dusseldorf, Germany. Other honorable finishes for Opel were the Cascada, which was voted second in the convertibles under 30,000 euros category, and the Ampera, which was voted third in its category among 17 other electric vehicles.
