Rover 200 Cabriolet 1992-
  • Economy

    Value

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Good value to be able to transport four in the sun.

    Costs

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Insurance is fairly high but the engine's economical.

  • On the road

    Driving

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Holds the road well and is fun, but body rolls and there's scuttle shake.

    Performance

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Surprisingly nippy, the engine's a joy to rev.

  • Living with it

    Reliability

    2 out of 5 2.0

    Replaced head gasket, gearbox and others - this car had been thrashed and unloved. Had to spend some on getting it fit!

    Image

    3 out of 5 3.0

    More class than an Escort/Astra/Golf but still hints of hairdresser and old man, if that's possible!

    Comfort

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Supportive seats (with lumbar adjustment), went to Italy and back without much pain. Electric roof useful.

    Security

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Alarm & immobiliser. But put valuables in the boot, not on show under a soft top.

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Derby Luffield Rover were fine.
