Vauxhall Adam generations

Vauxhall's smallest car is the Adam, which is different from its mainstream selection of vehicles, including the Astra or Corsa. It was first offered in 2013 and discontinued in the UK in 2019 because of more competition from the crossover segment and to allow the manufacturer to focus on electrification. Through those model years, Vauxhall was able to keep the interior updated and offer modern touches that gave the Adam a more premium feel.

Used Vauxhall Adam information

Used Vauxhall Adam FAQ's

Which is the most popular engine in the Vauxhall Adam?

The most popular engine is the 1.2-litre option that outputs 69bhp. As the lowest-rated engine, it is the cheapest way to drive the Adam, though there's more than enough power for everyday city navigation.

Which are the most popular trim levels?

Vauxhall offered the Adam in seven trim levels: Jam, Glam, Slam, Energised, Griffin, Rocks and S Air. The Jam is the most popular in the used market because of its low price and decent equipment. In second place is the Energised, which offers a strong balance of features and value.

What optional extras should I look out for?

The Vauxhall Adam is one of the most customisable city vehicles around, having been available with three roof colours, 12 exterior paints, 31 different alloy wheel designs and various upgrades when it was new. For that reason, it's challenging to find two Adams on the used market that look exactly alike.

Is the Vauxhall Adam a good family car?

Because of the three-door design and smaller back seats, the Vauxhall Adam doesn't make the perfect family vehicle for longer trips. Small children can fit in the back for short distances, but it's ideally used for shopping trips and school runs rather than for family holidays.

Is there a hybrid version of the Vauxhall Adam?

Vauxhall did not make a hybrid Adam. Instead, it has been offered with a variety of petrol engines. The most efficient option is the 1.0-litre turbo ecoFLEX engine that arrived later in the lineup. It produces 113bhp and is capable of 57mpg.

Is the Vauxhall Adam available as an automatic?

Vauxhall did make an automatic transmission for the Adam, but it's only paired with the 1.4-litre engine that outputs 85bhp. Badged as Easytronic, automatic examples of the Adam are very rare on the used market, but they can be found if you look hard enough.

Is there a four-wheel drive version available?

No, Vauxhall did not make the Adam with four-wheel drive. All models came with front-wheel drive, which is common in this segment. Because the Adam is mainly used for city driving, all-wheel drive capability is not essential.
