The trendy Opel Adam has received numerous accolades in its short lifetime from a variety of organizations and publications. The most recent addition to the small city car’s trophy case comes from Italian automotive website AutoScout24, who gave it a ‘Carolina’ award for winning the Best Economical Car category.
To decide the Carolina awards, which is a play on words using ‘car’ and ‘online’, more than 12,000 users of AutoScout24 voted for their favorite vehicles across five different categories. The categories included Best Car overall, the Best Sports Car, Best Green Car and Best Electric car. In 2012, Opel won the Best Electric Car category for the Ampera extended-range EV.
“We are very happy that the Adam won this prestigious award. It proves, once again, the level of appreciation for the numerous qualities that make up the Adam, many of which – such as the IntelliLink infotainment system with ground breaking Siri Eyes Free – are closely connected with the online world, the same world that has assigned this award to the Adam,” Paola Trotta, Communications Director of General Motors Italia, said in a statement.
The Adam has won multiple awards since its launch in January 2013, including the 2014 38th Readers’ Choice Award from German automotive magazine Auto Motor Und Sport and the Best Interior In a Production Car at the Automotive Interiors Expo 2013 trade show in Stuttgart.
