Driving

The suspension is a little soft, feeling unsettled over all but the smoothest road surfaces, but we do not think that will upset too many city dwellers.

The electric power steering is not too bad but it verges on the light side and feedback is not the best amongst its peers. It does have a driver selectable city mode which increases the power assistance for example when parking, should you need it.

What's It Like to Live With

Front seat occupancy is easy with wide opening doors, but currently the ADAM is only available as three-door four-seater model, so rear seat passengers may struggle to get into the two rear seats and once in there is not a lot of head or shoulder room. Therefore there is not a great deal of room in the back for tallish adults but pre-teens should be happy.

Getting the ideal driving position is fairly easy and the driver’s seat is height adjustable with a dial recline. The steering wheel is adjustable for height and reach – all round vision is fairly good but some driver’s may not like over the shoulder vision which is hampered by the thick rear pillars.

The boot is on the small side, with the rear seats up the boot can carry up to 170 litres with the split fold seats folded down this increases to 663 litres, which compares to the FIAT 500’s 185 / 550 litres. You do not get a spare wheel at all, so if you cannot re-inflate the tyre with the puncture repair kit you are stuck or you can buy a space-saver spare for an extra £110.

Our ADAM GLAM test car was equipped with climate control, 16” alloys wheels, GLAM interior visual content, a leather clad steering wheel with cruise and informatics control, front day time running and rear LED lights, fixed glazed roof and chrome pack.
