This little tyke is the Vauxhall Adam Rocks Air, a mash-up of high-grade supermini, crossover-alike styling and roll-back fabric roof.

The Adam sits on suspension raised 15mm, with the track widened to fill out the broader wheelarches. 17-inch alloy wheels come as standard, with 18’s optional.

The styling as been toughened up with anthracite cladding around the lower edges of the car. A rear spoiler and LED daytime running lights finish it off.

Then there is the roof, which rolls back along most of the length of the roof at speeds up to 85mph. Unlike the similar Fiat 500C and Citroen DS3, the Adam Rocks retains a full tailgate, so peeling the roof off doesn’t affect practicality.

Under the bonnet, the Adam has Vauxhall’s brand-new 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, producing 113bhp and 125lb/ft of torque. Drive goes to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.

0-62mph is dealt with in 9.9 seconds with a top speed of 121mph. Vauxhall claims combined fuel economy of 55.4mpg and Co2 emission of 119g/km. 1.2- and 1.4-litre naturally aspirated petrol motors are available as well.

The chassis and steering have been revised to cope with the higher, wider suspension.

Inside the Rocks, there are a couple of new trim options, while the £275 IntelliLink system let’s you pair your smartphone to the car, so you can use Bluetooth, music streaming and apps, among many other things.

As ever with the Adam, there is a laundry list of personalisation options.

The Vauxhall Adam Rocks Air is on sale now, with prices from £14,695.
