Trim level

Energised Black Jack
All the toys of Energised but with a black bonnet and carbonfibre-effect rear-view mirror cover and dark tinted rear windows.
Rocks S
Only available with the 148bhp range-topping engine, you get plenty of sporty touches inside and out, big wheels, sports suspension, climate control and a canvas sunroof.
Energised
Energised trim is tempting if you’re happy to stick to the 1.2 engine. Over Jam, this adds 17in alloy wheels, LED running lights and tail-lights, IntelliLink infotainment and black accents, yet it&#39;s the same price as Jam. The only issue is that you can’t choose another engine or add any options.
S
This is the hottest Adam. It gets sports suspension, huge alloy wheels and bespoke interior treatment, but it’s far too expensive for what it is.
Rocks Air
The same as Rocks S, but with more engine options.
Slam
Avoid this one; it’s the most uncomfortable because it gets standard sports suspension and big alloy wheels. This trim also doesn’t get the appealing glass roof that cheaper Glam models get, although climate control and LED running lights are thrown in.
Glam
It’s mostly style extras that set Glam apart from the other trims, but a panoramic glass roof, climate control and LED running lights could sway a lot of buyers. Stick to 16in wheels to avoid the sports suspension.
Our pick
Jam
Entry-level Jam is our pick of the range, because it gets a multi-function steering wheel, Bluetooth, digital radio and USB input, as well as air-con, electric windows and alloy wheels. You only need to add the IntelliLink touchscreen system to have a car that feels classy and has lots of &#39;big car&#39; features. Stick to 16in wheels to avoid the sports suspension.
