Written by Parkers on

Take the oldest chassis in the Rover range, sprinkle with skirts, spoilers and wings and hand to MG engineers for development. The result is a surprisingly convincing line-up of sports hatches and saloons that perform as well as they look and do-away with the stuffy Rover image. Fast, nimble, fun to drive but not as refined as you’d like.
