The Rover 25 was launched in spring 1995. It was the first car solely designed and built by Rover Group. This car was very exciting because it only had 25% carry over parts from the old Rover 200, so in theory was a brand new concept car. The cost of design through to production of the car was some £500 million. A wonderful car to drive, it fitted in with Rover’s new image of an exciting, forward thinking British company. In 1997 Rover Group decided it was time to give the Rover 25 a facelift. Codenamed Jewel, the design alterations were to be done in conjunction with a design house. The facelift was also done to incorporate new safety ... Read the complete review

Having a father in the motor industry has its advantages.... I had a 97 Rover 200 Vi for about 3 months before i gave it to my mum. It is white. It is a Rover 200. It Looks like any other Rover 200. That is until you put your right foot down and all that can be seen is a confused blur. Don't get me wrong here, I think the bog standard 1.4 and 1.6 Rover 200's are nice looking cars (Since '96 onwards anyway!), my mum thinks that hers is 'pretty'. The aesthetics however, are not the point of this car. The 1.8 VVC engine comes directly from the MGF in this model. It produces approx 160 B.H.P ... Read the complete review

I've been driving the basic version of a new Rover 25 for the last couple of days as its my Companys new pool car, my usual vehcile is a Renault Scenic. The Rover 25 is a small car, though it will seat 5 (small) people. I've found the handling and drive quality of the Rover 25 to be excellent, the car is very nippy and handles corners extremely well aided by the power steering. Fuel economy also seems to be reasonable at around 33 mpg for an urban cycle. The car also has a fairly good stereo system. However, the basic version is a little too basic as it doesn't have central locking or electric windows which are standard features ... Read the complete review

My third and favourite car. I owned this car second hand and drove it from 40000 to 85000 miles. I would describe the size of this car as between a Ford Fiesta and a Ford Focus. The version I owned was a 1.4Si which is the model I would recommend as its the only one I have drive. With regard to ease of drive I have only two complaints. I felt the clutch was too high and too springy, sometimes making it difficult to maintain the biting point. I also felt that the car (typical of rovers) sometimes struggled to get in reverse gear some times forcing me to pull it into gear with brute force. These were the only issues with the car. I felt it was a nice size inside, ... Read the complete review

Rovers 25 are one of the most powerful unit cars around. First of all for a company that was going bust and then came right back in a shooting style to release such a car, was quite an achievement. First impressions are really good as the new design of the bodywork give you a positive look. So when your driving this car around you will defiantly get people heads turning. Well since I've got my car right from the beginning I've been getting stair left, right and front. The interior is lovely as it has a smooth bubble look to the dashboard and seat feel so nice when you sit in. I got the IS version and on a cheap deal as I got the entire extra ...
