The brand new Vauxhall Adam 0
Adam is the name of Vauxhall’s new microcar. One of the most special features about the vehicle is that it will come with smart phone connectivity, with Vauxhall making a big deal out of it. In fact it was Vauxhall’s number one priority!If you can’t wait to get your hands on one, you will have to unfortunately as they car will go on sale as of next year. The vehicle looks similar to that of the classy Audi A1, which is not a bad thing.
There is wonderful pattern on around the exterior with a two tone colour scheme of blue and white. It really does make a beautiful contrast. The vehicle will be made available in three different variants, the JAM, GLAM and SLAM. Those are not the most conventional names for different trims, but they do stick. Vauxhall’s focus on smart phone technology has been a long time coming. Simply put, infotainment systems are the future. More and more motorists are getting used to the idea of having a smart computer within their vehicle to cater for their every need.
If Vauxhall are to compete with the likes of the Audi A1, smart phone connectivity is a must. There are little amounts of details being revealed as of yet about the Vauxhall Adam but what is known is the device will allow internet based applications to be used along with GPS navigation, which should have live traffic updates. Smart phone operating systems that will be adaptable include the iOS as well as the Android. The
Windows Phone and the Blackberry will not be compatible, but they could be in the future. The infotainment system in question will use a seven inch colour screen which will have touch screen capability. Vauxhall have released images which show the screen being nicely integrated into the vehicle’s interior design. We mentioned the Audi A1 but let’s not forget about the rest of the competition.
This includes the Skoda Citigo, the Seat Mii and the much publicised Volkswagen UP! These three vehicles derived from the same Volkswagen Group Empire and contain a plug – in Navigon derived device that is able to be detached. Experts claim Vauxhall’s system is more advanced. The Alfa Romeo along with the Fiat 500 carry the Blue&Me system don’t really do too much compared to Vauxhall’s version. We can’t bring the MINI into this arguments, as they don’t offer a car small enough as what their brand name sounds like. Will the Vauxhall Adam be a success?
