Used Rover 25 (1999 - 2005) Comfort

The Rover 25 is little more than an old 200 with a Rover 75-style nose job and a bundle of detailed changes. It sits between small car and medium car classes - bigger than many city cars, smaller than a Ford Focus.

The 25's stodgy packaging isn't ideal. Taller drivers will complain of a tight, uncomfortable, driving position while front seat origami is required to give rear passengers adequate legroom. Owners reviewing their cars at report that longer journeys can bring backache and cramp due to poor support from the sports-style seats.

Boot is big for small car, but interior cabin storage is a bit spartan - a glovebox and some drink holders in the door bins are about it.

Behind the wheel

Dash layout is simple but looking dated now. Switchgear goes back to the late Eighties. However, there's plenty of room, apart from the cramped pedal area. Steering wheel adjusts for height.
