Rover 200 Coupe 1992-
  • Economy

    Value

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Good used deal off eBay.

    Costs

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Insurance is high (15), but you get 38mpg. VVC engine is expensive for big services (60k / head gasket).

  • On the road

    Driving

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Sporty drive (stiff springs, low ride). Not a very agile chassis.

    Performance

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Very satisfying, not just good looks (like the 1.6).

  • Living with it

    Reliability

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Only had it 2 weeks (but it needed a new head gasket upon delivery at 78k miles).

    Image

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Full cream leather. Purple/blue flip paint, excellent coupe shape - great to be seen in.

    Comfort

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Stiff springs means bumpy inner-city ride - roof panels squeak on every turn, but I don't mind. Would like aircon, though.

  • Security and Service

    Security

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Immobiliser should stop it going anywhere - good enough.

    Service

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Found a cheaper-than-most dealer. Got lots done at same time, so saved some dosh.
