Model Review

With models such as the Corsa and Astra, Vauxhall is a brand firmly in the mainstream – offering well-rounded cars that suit a variety of different buyers.

But it’s never been a brand that’s pulled at the heartstrings or offered much in the way of glamour – something the brand aimed to change with the Adam – a fun-looking city car that debuted in 2013.

Aiming to rival hugely popular premium superminis such as the Citroen DS3 and Mini Hatch, the Adam was a model that did things differently to the usual Vauxhall range. It offers astounding levels of personalisation (Vauxhall said more than one million combinations were available), along with new interior technology and new safety tech – self-parking and blind spot monitoring were even found on the options list.

Looks and image

Undoubtedly the key reason why you’d opt for the Adam over a similarly-priced Corsa of the same vintage is for the way this cool city car looks. With large alloy wheels, the option of a bi-tone roof and a sleek and swoopy design, it’s certainly one of the most appealing Vauxhalls in recent years. There are also all kinds of colour options and personalisation options on offer – just be aware that the more lurid ones may hit residual values down the line.

It’s a similar story on the interior of the Adam, too, with the Vauxhall’s cabin being another asset to it. With the colour options extending here as well, it ensures it stands out from the crowd. The quality and finish is also rather good – particularly for a car of this size – while there’s a decent amount of tech on offer. Just be aware to choose a higher-spec model, such as Glam, if you want a touchscreen.
