At this year's Motor Show Geneva (March 7th – March 17th 2013) the world premiere of the new Opel Cascada is in the spotlight at the Opel stand in hall 2, stand 2231 – the high-quality convertible that offers a premium open-air driving experience. Besides that there is once again so much more to discover at Opel – for example the new Opel ADAM, its IntelliLink media system with "Siri Eyes Free" integration also is celebrating its world premiere. Or the new crossover-open-air-concept Opel ADAM ROCKS. And of course the concept study ADAM R2 following the FIA R2 rallye regulations.
As you see: At Opel there is once again so much to discover:
World premiere at the Motor Show Geneva 2013
The elegant new Opel Cascada brings a convincing all year usability to the glamorous world of convertibles. So why wait? Convincing high quality, dynamic design and rewarding to drive, it’s the car you’ve promised yourself long enough.
Open or closed, the new Opel Cascada has brilliance. The clear lines reflect total commitment to elegance and style. From the front it is unmistakably an Opel, but refined in every detail. Check out the sculpted, impressive grille, the expensive mesh below it, the signature LED Daylight Running Lights and stylish chrome. The discretely sculpted power bulge just subtly hints at the performance.
Play a song, make a call or send a text – with your eyes on the road and your hands on the steering wheel. Siri Eyes Free – the intelligent personal assistant from Apple will be integrated in ADAM starting in April 2013 making your ride more fun and safe. Using a button on ADAM’s steering wheel, iPhone* owners can ask Siri to call people, play music, hear and compose text messages, dictate emails, hear new notifications, get directions, add reminders and much more. And with ADAM’s FlexDock cradle you have your Apple device* front and center and can use Siri Eyes Free to voice control turn-by-turn navigation on Apple Maps and ask “Are we there yet?”
The new Opel ADAM is like no other. It’s not just the bold stance and the raucous colors. ADAM stands for fresh individuality and modern design. But this urban car is only brought to life with your unique personality.
With ADAM, you have a say in the design of your own car. Your ADAM will be the talk of the town. Thanks to three design worlds, this mini urban car can be an action-packed ADAM SLAM, a funky ADAM JAM or a classy ADAM GLAM.
The Opel ADAM takes personalization and dynamics to a whole new level. The unique two-tone floating roof gives ADAM the allure to stand out in the crowd. And measuring just under 3.70 meters in length and 1.72 meters in width, the agile three-door doesn’t only look squat, it´s honed for providing the perfect urban driving experience too.
A new crossover open air concept raises ADAM to the next level of individualization. With its new 3-door body style, its 3.70 meters in length, muscular proportions, fierce design and open-air capability, ADAM ROCKS also is a proposal for opening a new segment of the market.
Showcasing how ADAM’s unique personalization program can get another twist, the ROCKS Concept has been created for those seeking personal freedom ‘off the beaten track’ beyond the urban landscape. Inspired by Parkour urban athletes, it is higher and wider on its wheels, tougher and more compact in appearance. The ADAM ROCKS’ special feeling of personal freedom is further emphasized by its cabrio looks and fabric roof that offers a free view of the sky above. The fabric extends across the entire width and length of the roof, right back to the C-pillars.
ADAM rock's Geneva.
Geneva world premiere of a new concept study based on FIA R2 regulations: the ADAM R2. Chic, classy, eye-catching: this applies to the ADAM in general, as well as its R2 rally variant. Special body components from the OPC product line, quick release catches on the hood and tailgate, as well as under-ride guards front and rear, emphasize the sporty format of this athletic asphalt and gravel specialist.
*Compatible with: Apple iPhone 4S & iPhone 5, Apple iPad (3rd & 4th gen) & iPad Mini, Apple iPod touch (4th gen).
Smooth curves and a rugged stance set the style for a new kind of motoring. The new Opel Mokka is refined, advanced and at home anywhere. From the purposeful front, through the dramatic profile to the rounded rear style, the new Opel Mokka brings sporting charisma into line with practical reality.
Opel engineers take your safety as seriously as their own. Every Opel vehicle begins with a rigid safety frame. To this are added energy absorbent bumper systems with crash boxes front and rear, progressively deformable structures and high tensile steel side protection bars. The design and structure of these elements also means that the new Opel Mokka meets all pedestrian safety.
With the new Opel Mokka you’ll feel a positive difference from the first moments. Superior ride and handling have been engineered in. Minute attention to detail and exhaustive testing mean it feels just as good as it looks.
The new Opel Active models offer all the comfort and functional features of the series plus the luxurious look and feel of embossed premium fabric Salta/Atlantis interior trim. The “Active” badge on the side and the exclusive alloy wheel options indicate that you made a very special decision at the right time and shows that you have your special preferences when it comes to comfort and style.
The Corsa OPC "Nürburgring Edition" offers more of everything. The modified turbocharger and optimized twin pipe exhaust system results in 155 kW (210 hp), with 250 Nm torque, increased to 280 Nm in overboost.
Control is enhanced by lowering the Bilstein equipped sports chassis, 305 mm Brembo front disc brakes, mechanical limited slip-differential and light weight forged 18'' alloy wheels with modified offset for wider tread. And the performance on the road is according: Not only with 6.8 seconds 0-100 km/h and 230 km/h top speed, but also with the head turning design.
If you want your Corsa OPC Nürburgring Edition to really stand out, choose the optional Matt Black Pack in Carbon Flash with matt black foil applications on roof and mirrors, large OPC roof spoiler and dark headlamps with AFL curve and cornering light.
It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s Corsa OPC.
Sinuous muscular styles, impressive reserves of power and handling perfected on the Nürburgring have all been masterfully combined for the drives.
The Opel Astra OPC is a real performer. The OPC specific lowered FlexRide chassis with mechanical limited slip differential, uprated front Brembo brakes, HiPerStrut front and Watts link rear suspension, combined with 206 kW (280hp) and 400 Nm of turbocharged power, tell their own story.
You can visualize the mighty performance of the Astra OPC with the OPC Power App (pre-requisite: Smartphone Interface Controller): Up to 60 values can be displayed on your iPhone including G-force, lateral acceleration, torque and engine boost pressure. Therefore driving enthusiasts are able to analyze and optimize their driving performance.
Step out of the ordinary and into the Opel Astra OPC.
Why accept competent when you can have excellent? The Opel Insignia OPC and Insignia OPC Sports Tourer rewrite all the rulebooks. Everyone's a winner.
The powerful profile together with interior and exterior OPC design elements mean it is simply unique and unmistakable. Among other outstanding standard features are adaptive 4x4 drive, FlexRide sports chassis with HiPerStrut front suspension, adaptive sport differential, ventilated discs and OPC Recaro sports seats.
The Opel Insignia OPC delivers up to 239 kW (325 hp), making it the most powerful series produced Opel of all time. In combination with manual transmission, 435 Nm torque catapult you from 0–100 km/h in just 6 seconds and then on to a regulated top speed of 250 km/h – or to 270 km/h if you choose the OPC Unlimited Pack with manual transmission.
Forget the status quo, get out ahead and stay there.
The “IntelliLink” system is designed to support specific smartphone applications. The current supported applications include Stitcher®, for podcast radio and BringGo Navigation. Since the “IntelliLink” radio software can be updated, new apps will be available in the future as well: Siri Eyes Free - the intelligent personal assistant from Apple - will be integrated in ADAM starting in April 2013 making your ride more fun and safe.
BringGo navigation is a full turn by turn GPS-based Navigation System that has maps in 3D and text-to-speech, making sure you can get the show on the road. The text-to-speech is supported through the smartphone and not the radio. BringGo Navigation is connected with iPhones via USB and with Android- based phones via Bluetooth®. Connection via Bluetooth® or USB shows the display of your smartphone on the large infotainment screen of the vehicle and allows the operation via touchscreen or steering wheel control.
A new dimension to media reception.
Opel will introduce its all-new generation diesel engine, the 1.6 CDTI ECOTEC, in the Zafira Tourer - the cleanest diesel engine in Opel’s history. Equipped with Opel’s “BlueInjection” SCR technology (selective catalytic reduction) and featuring closed-loop combustion control and an aluminum block, it already meets the strict Euro 6 emissions limits. The new state-of-the-art Opel four-cylinder 1.6-liter diesel engine delivers 100 kW/136 hp and 320 Nm of torque for outstanding fuel efficiency in the Zafira Tourer of just 4.1 l/100 km consumption and 109 g/km CO2. Therefore it does not only set benchmarks for performance with its high power and torque density but also for refinement with an outstandingly low level of noise, vibration and harshness. Class-leading refinement, performance and environmental compatibility.
