https://www.autocar.co.uk - Vauxhall has axed the Adam Rocks S and Adam Rocks Air, SUV-inspired versions of the Adam supermini, in the UK amid slow sales. In 2017, Vauxhall shifted just 138 Rocks models, despite the rising popularity of SUV-style superminis in recent months.
https://www.autocar.co.uk - The fast and affordable junior Volkswagen hot hatch is back – and with 113bhp, the new Up GTi packs more power than the original Golf GTi. Set for UK sale in early 2018 at an expected starting price around £15,000 following a planned public premiere at next week's GTi fan meet at Lake Woerthersee in Austria, the latest member of what Volkswagen officials recently suggested to Autocar will become a larger and more prominent line-up of powered-up GTi models in future years arrives well into the latter half of the first-generation Up’s planned seven year life cycle, providing the German car mak
https://guardian.ng - The imminent takeover of General Motors’ European subsidiary Opel by French carmaker PSA Peugeot Citroen comes after almost two decades of crisis for the historic manufacturer. Despite remaining a familiar sight on German roads, the carmaker with the “Blitz” (lightning) logo and its British sibling Vauxhall haven’t booked a profit since 1999. Recent woes cast a pall over the firm’s storied history, dating back to its founding in 1862 by Adam Opel as a sewing-machine and later bicycle manufacturer.

Opel is essentially GM's entire European operation, building and selling vehicles under the Opel and Vauxhall brand names throughout Europe. It accounted for nearly all of the roughly 1,162,000 vehicles GM sold in Europe in 2016.
http://www.topgear.com - Break up the name of Vauxhall Adam Rocks S into chunks. Vauxhall Adam – it’s Luton’s cutesy posh city car, based on the old Corsa and aimed at the Mini Cooper, DS 3 and Fiat 500. Still with me? Okay, the Rocks is a plastic-clad crossover version, pottering about on a dash of extra ride height. It’s still front-wheel drive, but it looks slightly butcher, if no better in the mud, like a puppy in wellingtons. It also gets a full-length cloth roof that retracts electrically, so it’s sort of a convertible.

The stylish Adam city car is Vauxhall’s addition to a sector dominated by the likes of the ever-cool Mini, and the newly launched Unlimited version is the Brit maker’s latest bid to attract young, funky buyers who covet more input in their model’s design and kit.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk - If you're a young, image-conscious city driver, would you buy a Vauxhall? The Luton-based outfit certainly hopes so, and reckons it will sell 750 units of its souped-up supermini, the Adam S. This car builds on the existing Adam city car and adds a 1.4-litre, 148bhp turbocharged engine, a 0-62mph time of 8.5 seconds, and a chassis tweaked by Vauxhall's in-house tuning arm, VXR.
http://www.autoexpress.co.uk - The Vauxhall Adam Rocks S has a punchy 1.4-litre petrol under the bonnet and comes wrapped in a stylish body, but it’s let down by a very high price tag. It’s not particularly fast, nor is it that great to drive, and that’s a problem for a car that costs more than a Ford Fiesta ST. It fills a different niche with the SUV-inspired styling, but the crossover body doesn’t offer anything more than the standard Adam S in the way of practicality.
