When we say that the new Vauxhall ADAM is a car that you can make your own, we really mean it. This model is by far one of the most customisable, with millions of possible colour, style and accessory combinations.
Although the finished look of the car is completely up to you, the silhouette and shape are always recognisable. With a total wheelbase of just under four metres, it's the shortest and most compact model in the range. Slim black pillars hold up the clever 'floating' roof, adding to the overall quirkiness and attractiveness of the car in a fresh and innovative way. Much of the rest is down to your preferences, including the alloy wheel size and design, body colour, roof, headlining and optional parts.
On the inside, it's hard to believe that the ADAM could look so streamlined. The cabin's comfortable and spacious enough for everything you need and a full complement of passengers. High-density foam has been used to mould the seats and make them both comfortable and supportive, and you can customise the dashboard to match your driving style. At higher specifications, the technology level is truly impressive: Siri Eyes Free voice control, Intellilink touchscreen infotainment and hands-free Bluetooth® could all be at your disposal.
The car's quirky appearance is complemented by the enthusiasm from the petrol engine, which is offered at a range of bhp levels depending on the trim level you choose. The 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre capacity engines produce a maximum of 130Nm of torque and 86bhp, with other versions not far behind. Each of them pairs up with a standard five-speed manual gearbox, and independent front and rear suspension systems keep your balance and handling in check. If that isn't enough, economy is high across the range at around 62.8mpg combined thanks to ecoFLEX and start/stop fuel-saving technologies.
You'd also expect passenger protection to be just as strong, and the model doesn't disappoint. A look at the specification list shows exactly how the car secured a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, including ESP-plus, ABS and no less than six airbags. Additional Cornering Brake Control supplements the diagonal-split braking system, and Straight Line Stability is a new feature that prevents you drifting from your lane.
With around 30,000 exterior and interior personalisation options, it is not hard to see why the Adam is one of Vauxhall's best selling models. Get in touch with yournearest Lookers Vauxhall dealership to find out more.
