Rover 25 (99-05)

Value

4 out of 5

An excellent buy, some dealers are asking too much though.

Costs

4 out of 5

Could be even more miserly on the gravy if Rover had fitted a taller 5th gear (its got the torque to take it).

Driving

4 out of 5

Suprisingly good given the model's venerability.

Performance

4 out of 5

Small car, 100 BHP, good off the line and great mid-range overtaking ability.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems so far - the commentators curse or what.

Rover are in the doldrums, but the 25 is still sharp. Some love, some loath - you pay your money and makes yer choice.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Seats are fine, driving possition a little high and wind noise a drag on long runs.
