Pros & cons


Cheap to buy; good to drive


Reliability hasn't been good

Written by Parkers Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019


This 200 is an all-Rover design that was signed-off before BMW took over the company. And it’s still on sale (in the form of the 25) now that German firm are long gone. Points in its favour are that it looks sporty, drives well and can be picked up cheaply. Those against are issues with reliability, heavy depreciation for those who bought new and a cramped rear.
