    Opel CEO says there will be a whole ADAM family

    Speaking to the German car mag Auto Motor und Sport, Opel CEO Karl-Thomas Neumann said the company will offer a "whole ADAM family". He declined to go into specifics but the new models will join recent entries such as the ADAM Rocks and ADAM S.

    Some other news from the article:
    - Opel is developing a sporty, lifestyle SUV based on the Mokka. Could also replace the Meriva.
    - Next gen Astra will be shorter and lighter (100kg or 220lbs), but offer more space inside and new premium features like ventilated front seats and heated back seats.

    It's not a Buick and shouldn't be changed to be a Buick, unlike Cascada and Mokka. Though Buick might be getting a sub-brand as they had 40 years ago.

    During a presentation to investors and financial analysts in October 2014, GM President Dan Ammann said, "We talk much less than we should, frankly, when we talk about Buick and GMC," and called them "huge profit contributors." "We will be investing significantly in these brands to continue the momentum they have," Ammann promised.

    Sounds good to me! I think so there is potential for growth. In addition to OPC performance variant, you can add a Coupe/Convertible, even a Roadster (spiritual substitute for Opel Tigra). Something like:


    I would not rule out the idea of ​​an actual body SUV with Adam (the Rocks is just a trim package), something like the Volkswagen Taigun measuring 151.9 inches (compared to 168.5 the Mokka/Encore), but with approach "chic" of the original Adam.

    A 5-door variant would not make sense... It's enough with the Corsa and the next model based on the Spark.

    Interesting! In the news talk about a "Mokka Coupe"... I guess me Mokka 3 doors with a more adventurous look, so the "lifestyle". Call it Mokka Rocks! That's a good adjective to establish it as a trim level extensible to other models of the brand.

    I do not understand why at the website think you could replace the Meriva, if your own information says it will be a variant of Mokka and GM-PSA society agreed to develop a new generation Meriva with French group platform.

    - Next gen Astra will be shorter and lighter (100kg or 220lbs), but offer more space inside and new premium features like ventilated front seats and heated back seats.
    That's great to hear - but even today many Opel models offer far more features than the mainstream market dictates. So do Ford models and this is why Ford is bending over backwards with the Vignale to try to push them. Because they cost money and are intended to boost retail price of a car such equipped, but if it does so over 2x of the base retail price, nobody is going to seriously consider it, given the image and potential depreciation.

    It will be brilliant if the next Astra would be something of an A-Klasse (in fact, it already is very much an on-par competitor when you take a well-kitted-out version), but with Chevrolet exiting Europe, who will take care of the ginormous fleet, small-business and low-budget retail market that Opel and Vauxhall cater to?

    I fear that Opel will present a super-duper gimmick-packed "Astra Cosmo" in Geneva or Frankfurt that will make Buick cry and Mercedes tremble, and then proceed to churn out plastic-wheelcovered watered-down versions at half the price just to fill in the production lines and the Cosmos will be gathering dust in the back corners of the showrooms of the dealers forced to take one demo in order to be able to get the cheap Astras for their impoverished customer bases that can bite the bitter pill of feeling like a loser for buying an Opel.

    PS. For those not familiar with Opel - Opel has been calling their premium equipment levels "Cosmo" for some time, in opposition to e.g. "Emotion" or "Edition" for the cheap versions.

    I like the adam rock....like the detailing it has. The adam s I do like the checkered pattern for the headliner. Hoping that they make there way to the U.S. cause I think it would be a good replacement for my Astra.
