Vauxhall Adam hatchback

The Vauxhall Adam was designed as a trendy small hatchback that would compete with models such as the Fiat 500 and the more expensive three-door MINI.

As with the Fiat and the MINI, the Vauxhall Adam comes with a huge list of customisable options that means it's easy to end up with a car that is completely unique, if you don’t mind splashing your cash on the options list.

The Adam is aimed squarely at younger buyers, so all are cheap to run. The range is soon to be joined by a super efficient 1.0-litre petrol engine that could well be the pick of the bunch - a sporty Vauxhall Adam S is also on the cards.

The Adam can be specced in one of three base levels of trim: Adam JAM, Adam GLAM and Adam SLAM. All models get cruise control and a digital radio.
