Rover 25 (99-05) - Review

Review by Parkers on

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.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

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. So you'll either see things like the rear seats as cramped or not-too bad really. Lower prices and good equipment win some points back.

What owners say...

 The boot is excellent and just right for my needs, the space in the front is a big improvement to my previous car too.

 Starts first time and every time and is reliable before and after the head gaskets is replaced.

 Compact size but can transport 4 adults in comfort. Good size boot despite it being less than 4 metres long. The unrefined but strong turbodiesel engine even pulls our small caravan with ease.
