Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Vauxhall Adam hatchback?

The Smart Fortwo coupe is much easier to park because you sit up higher and have a better view of what’s going on. It's shorter, too, and it has a very tight turning circle. It doesn’t have rear seats which will be a problem for some, and the boot is an odd shape that hampers practicality.

If you want style, the Fiat 500 is very cute and thanks to its diminutive size and ‘city’ mode power steering, you’ll have no trouble fighting your way through town traffic. Finding a good one is easy because there are loads of them around.

Overview

The Vauxhall Adam is well equipped, has neat styling and a classy interior. But, it’s not great to drive and the ride is crashy

  • Smart interior
  • The ride is too firm
  • Zippy 1.0-litre turbo petrol
  • Ride is too firm
  • Handling isn’t assured enough at speed
  • Small boot
