“It is a first class result that this year too we are able to take home ‘Auto Trophy’ awards”, Opel Chairman of the Board Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann explains delightedly about the success in the Auto Zeitung Reader Survey. “It shows that our new models, above all the Opel ADAM and the Opel Cascada, strike a chord with the public and in this way, we are able to meet the taste of our car drivers. We will continue along this path in future without compromises: We will build inspiring cars with innovative technologies which are also affordable.”

With 35.8 percent of votes, the Opel ADAM is the preeminent victor amongst the 22 competing ‘Citycars’. It not only leaves behind the VW Up and VW XL1 (each with 19.6 percent and 9.2 percent respectively) but instead achieves a head start significantly greater than that of the previous year. Opel’s individualization champion has since its market launch at the beginning of the year developed into a constant amongst the small Lifestyle models. At the same time, the Opel ADAM achieves the second best individual result with this year’s ‘Auto Trophy’.

Just as convincing is the appearance of the new mid-sized cabrio, the Opel Cascada. Once selected for the vote, the readers of Auto Zeitung place it in the category of the premium cabrios. The athletic Opel Cascada beat BMW to second place. In the category ‘Cabrios up to 30.000 euros’, a total of 15 vehicles were entered into the category.
