This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Rover 45 Saloon (04-05) review.

Parkers overall rating: 2 out of 5 2.0

Driver, passenger and side airbags on all models. Abs too, but no NCAP rating. Standard alarm / immobiliser plus remote central locking across the range and the stereo is a unique-fit item.

Like the passenger accommodation it depends what you're comparing it to. Next to a Golf, it's fine, against a Mondeo, it isn't enough.
