The Adam’s interior could reasonably be described as its best feature. It’s big on colour and personality, feels reasonably well built and can be personalised to be just how you want it.
Personalisation is high on the Adam’s agenda. There are 20 different trim inserts and 18 upholstery variations to choose from – personalisation that was until recently reserved for expensive cars from the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce. And, while we’re on the subject, the Adam is available with a £325 headliner that uses 64 LEDs to mimic the sky at night – an option originally conceived in the Rolls Royce Phantom.
It looks pretty inside and has a reasonably sensible layout
The IntelliLink infotainment system is a £495 option across the range, but it’s highly recommend to spec it. It’s one of the most advanced systems among supermini rivals and comes – along with the usual Bluetooth phone connectivity, USB slot, CD player and DAB digital radio – with a function that mirrors your phone’s display on the infotainment touchscreen. You can also use a multitude of apps for things like sat-nav and music streaming. IntelliLink comes as part of the Technical Pack, which also includes an upgraded six-speaker stereo and rear parking sensors. You’ll need the parking assist, because rearward visibility is quite poor compared to the excellent view you get out the front.
