Opel today unveiled the Adam Swing Top, which offers consumers the canvas convertible roof previously only available on the more rugged Adam Rocks. Opel says the Adam Swing Top “will offer an unrestricted view of the sky” with the simple push of a button, furthering the already vast customization possibilities for Opel’s small city runabout.
The Adam Swing Top is available in conjunction with the Adam Jam equipment package. Opel says the roof retracts to the C-pillar in just five seconds and can be closed while travelling at speed of up to 140 km/h. The canvas top is made up of a multi-layer fabric, which includes a strong central neoprene layer. The automaker also says the roof is “acoustically tuned” for optimal noise insulation inside the cabin.
In addition to offering a new convertible roof on the Adam, Opel also introduced an updated Easytronic 3.0 automatic transmission for the car. The automated auto-box has quicker response times to engine RPM changes, which aids in fuel efficiency, gear change smoothness and shift speed. When optioned in conjunction with the Adam’s 1.4-liter naturally aspirated engine, the Easytronic 3.0 transmission will cut fuel economy by 0.4-liters for every 100 kilometers travelled, equivalent to 10 grams per kilometer.
The Adam Jam Swing Top will start from 14,990 euros when it goes on sale, while the Easytronic 3.0 transmission will command an additional 600 euro premium.
