Rover 200 Coupe 1992-
  • Economy

    Value

    3 out of 5 3.0

    A lot of car for the money, but depreciation is reduced during the summer due to the targa top.

    Costs

    2 out of 5 2.0

    Very expensive experiences in my short period of ownership and the previous owner's too - more down to the age of the car. Speed sensors are a rip-off, as are power steering pipes.

    Driving

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Very responsible and sure-footed. Sports suspension upgrades help increase positive feel. Brakes are not great!

    Performance

    5 out of 5 5.0

    It has the 'grin-factor' that makes the £400 garage bill worthwhile. No lag from the turbo, which makes it very capable of overtaking. More bhp per tonne than a Scooby and apart from the new RS Focus, one of the most powerful front wheel cars ever made.

  • Living with it

    Reliability

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Turbo needs treating with care. Age of parts will mean that they will fail and require replacing. Gearbox identified as a weak point. Engines are not over stressed but uprate head gasket - essential.

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Still looks the business and looks the business when tastefully customised.

    Comfort

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Great driving position, seats comfortable and supportive and good visibility.

  • Security and Service

    Security

    3 out of 5 3.0

    A Thatcham Cat 1 alarm would be advisable due to the desirability of this car and the standard equipment is not that great.

    Service

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Wrights of Sleaford - excellent all round service.
