Equipment

1.5 out of 5 1.5

Safety

2.5 out of 5 2.5

Base model only gets driver airbag, belt pretensioners and an alarm/immobiliser. Central locking and passenger airbag are optional unless you buy a higher spec model. But forget about side or curtain airbags.

Interior & boot space

3.5 out of 5 3.5

Space is one area where the CityRover fairs quite well and the boot is reasonable with the added benefit of a split-folding rear seat. Materials are not particularly durable and mark easily.

How does the boot space compare?

Check the table below to see how the Rover CityRover (03-05) compares to other similar cars in terms of available boot space.
