For Unparalleled personalisation options make owning a unique car a genuine possibility. The Adam also has a smart cabin and all versions are well equipped.
Against The ride is too firm on the versions we’ve tried and, Grand Slam model apart, the handling isn’t assured enough at speed. The Adam isn’t that cheap, either, and there’s very little space in the back seats and in the boot.
What Car? says
The Vauxhall Adam has bags of style and luxury equipment, and a classy cabin. Most of the versions we’ve driven are too uncomfortable to recommend, however.

Target Price team says:
Clearly the temptation with the Adam is to take advantage of the almost limitless powers of personal expression, but care needs to be taken: the more outlandish you make your Adam, the smaller the number of people who’ll want to buy it from you.
You can, for instance, spec an array of mad dashboard surrounds called foils, some of which are LED backlit to create a great look and weird light in your Adam's cabin. However, when you get bored or need to sell the car, you can buy something more sober for just £75, which your dealer should be able to fit in minutes. You may then even be able to sell your old foils to someone else on eBay.
The Rocks Air version provides a more rugged look, but its main appeal lies in its fabric roof, which retracts at the touch of a button.
