No one buys a small city car expecting to find sprawling space for those in the back, but the Adam is worst in its class for rear accommodation. As with many of its peers, there is room for only two in the back of the Adam, although they get quite deeply sculpted seats and adjustable headrests. However, the front seats are quite chunky, which doesn’t help, so even an average-sized driver will leave little legroom for those unfortunate enough to be behind them. Headroom is less of a problem but is still worse than in rivals such as the Audi A1 and Fiat 500, and ultimately even children will feel cramped back there.
The central floor space is taken up by storage space that consists of three fixed cupholders – which are also likely to be used by front occupants, if necessary. Document pockets on the back of the front seats are not included on Jam or Glam, but are standard on Slam. Doorbins in the rear are fairly wide, so you could put a 1.0-litre bottle in them, but the high-set position of the bins mean that this would use up what little elbow room there is.
