Pros & cons


Sporty driving experience, good quality.


Cramped interior.

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


The Rover 25 is little more than an old 200 with a Rover 75-style nose job and a bundle of detailed changes. It sits between small car and medium car classes – bigger than many city cars, smaller than a Ford Focus. So you’ll either see things like the rear seats as cramped or not-too bad really. Lower prices and good equipment win some points back.
