Default Opel Adam Rocks undergoes tough testing ahead of Euro order books opening



With only a few days before the European order books are opened for the Opel Adam Rocks, he rugged city car is undergoing some heavy duty testing at the Dudenhofen Test Center.

The Adam Rocks covered an incredible 40,000 km while at Dudenhofen. Opel says that is equivalent to 160,000 km of driving on "particularly demanding roads." How is that possible? Well, Dudenhofen has roads that have potholes, humps, and cobbled pavement. In 24 weeks time, the Adam Rocks is said to have gone through an entire lifetime of vehicle ownership. Since I haven't heard of any delays, I am guessing that the tests went pretty well.

The Opel Adam Rocks should be able to handle all that stress and strain since it sits a half inch taller than the regular Opel Adam and has a revised suspension. The Opel Adam Rocks will also be the first vehicle to run on Opel's new 1.0-liter SIDI turbo-charged 3-cylinder engine.

Other changes include a distinctive body and a retractable cloth roof.

All this testing at Dudenhofen comes after the Adam Rocks just finished more tests at Opel's Electromagnetic Compatibility Center, which ensures consistent performance of the automaker's electrical systems.
