After months of hype, the Geneva Motor Show is now less than two weeks away: and one carmaker has revealed its plans for not one or two, but FOUR world premieres at the event.

Vauxhall will use the showcase to unveil: a new Zafira Tourer, featuring a super-efficient 1.6litre engine; a full-size, four-seat Vauxhall Cascada (pictured); and two new concepts: the ADAM ROCKS and the R2.Vauxhall Cascada

The Cascada is perhaps the most significant of them all – at least for now – because it will head to UK showrooms in April. According to Vauxhall, it is a vehicle that combines affordability with technology and luxury and will come with a choice of two trims: with the entry model including 18″ alloy wheels, LED tail lamps and sports chassis as standard.

In addition, the model comes with a range of powerful and efficient engines: from a 1.4litre turbo to a 2.0litre diesel and a 1.6 SIDI ECOTEC petrol engine. It will be priced from 23,995 on the road.

Meanwhile, Geneva attendees are likely to be wowed by the ADAM ROCKS, an urban mini-crossover that the company hopes could open a new segment in the industry. Compared to the regular Vauxhall ADAM, it is both taller and wider: yet manages to be more compact in its appearance and offers a cabrio roof.

The second ADAM concept, meanwhile, is a Rally Cup variation of the newcomer and is set to mark sister company Opel’s official return to motorsport. It has been built to FIA R2 regulations, is powered by a 1.6litre 16v engine and is capable of producing 185PS and 190Nm of torque.

Finally, also making its debut, will be a new generation 1.6litre CDTI start/stop diesel engine that will first appear in the Vauxhall Zafira. It is set to be the company’s cleanest diesel model to date: offering 136PS and 320Nm of torque while managing fuel economy of 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions at just 109g/km.

The new models will be released during the company’s Press conference on March 5.
