This relatively new car about town is holding its own amongst other classy superminis like the MINI and the Audi A1!. With the ability to select options on just about anything - this has to be the most personalised one-off car that can be made just the way you want it.
If you’re looking for a car that’s bespoke, whilst being stylish and fun, then this could be the one for you. Best of all you can get your hands on a brand new Vauxhall Adam with a low deposit and free insurance or a contribution towards your insurance.
With its classy good looks, sleek body and alloy wheels as standard, this car is exciting to drive and has a huge scope to be personalised. Inside, the Adam oozes yet more style and quality with some nifty little touches like the slick dashboard, chunky leather steering wheel and the chrome-ringed dials.
The boot space and back seat is smaller than other superminis, but what the Adam lacks in space is more than made up for in style! Every model features steering wheel mounted audio controls and a stereo with USB connectivity for your phone or IPod. You can pay extra for the smart IntelliLink touchscreen infotainment system which allows you to upload music and Satnav apps as well as receive/dictate text messages.
It’s fun and zippy to drive with quick steering and a good front grip. The suspension is firm so could make for a bumpy ride on the open road. The Adam is best suited for town and city driving where the light steering makes easy work of traffic and tight parking spaces.
The Adam was given a solid 4 out of 5 EURO NCAP safety rating and impresses in reliability scores. There’s stability control and six airbags as standard and the daytime running lights (DRL) with LED technology mean you’ll be easily seen on the road, even in daylight.
The Adam performs well in the fuel efficiency and emissions stakes. CO2 figures range from 114 – 139g/km meaning you could pay as little as £40 on road tax until 2017 (if you opt for a low-emission model). Fuel economy is also good and you’d be looking to pay about £8 - £9 per 100 miles for fuel.
It’s cheap to insure a Vauxhall Adam with models falling between insurance groups three and 10.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
