... I had previously owned two older Rover 200s, an H reg and a B reg. My main reason for choosing the new 216 Si was its economy to performance ratio, it will do 42 MPG and take me to 60 MPH in 9.3 secs. My options were a Megane, Astra or Fiesta but the Rover felt and looked like it was in a ... Read review

"...had previously owned two older Rover 200s, an H reg and a B reg. My main reason for choosing the new 216 Si was its economy to performance ratio, it will do 42 MPG and take me to 60 MPH in 9.3 secs. My options were a Megane, Astra or Fiesta but the Rover felt and looked like it was in a different class both from the inside and outside. Once behind the wheel the first thing you notice is the chunky steering wheel. The interior is quite luxurious looking ..." Read review

one of the best

Advantagesease of drive, responsive engine

Disadvantagesbrake pad wear

"...fairly cheap due to the Rover badge - although it is exactly the same as the Honda concerto. I haven't had problems with reliability but it does go through brake pads fairly quickly as it is an automatic. I highly recommend this car as a good first time car. ..." Read review

Honda mechanics with Rover Badge

AdvantagesGood seating position, great engine and extras

DisadvantagesABS noise, depreciation due to sell of by BMW

"The Rover 216GSI, is a great budget car, it comes normally with ABS, PAS, central locking, alarm, nice RDS stereo, electric windows, mirrors and sunroof and some come with leather interior and rear headrests. Looking at the list of features, it sounds like we have a bit of a luxury car on our hands, especially when they can be bough relatively cheap due to the decline in Rover name due to bad realtionship with BMW. The main attractionof this car for ..." Read review

Bargain cars with nippy performance

AdvantagesHonda reliability for Rover price

DisadvantagesOnly models previous to 1995 have the Honda engine

"...Accord and also this model Rover 216. Up until 1994, Honda and Rover were merged 20% and shared car design and production facilties, this practise is increasingly common in the car industry due to the amount of money that can be saved on creating the basic structure of a car. Of course in 1995, BMW took over Rover and Honda withdrew their support. I will not review this car except to say it is an excellent car for its time, the D series engine ..." Read review

Roving around

AdvantagesGood Reasonably priced car

DisadvantagesWorries about Rovers Future

"The Rover 216 si is a very good car I have had mine for about eighteen months. In that time I have had no major problems with the car and the servicing cost have been reasonable. The performance of the car is excellent as it is as happy cruising along on the motorway as it is on city centre streets. The Engine being a 1600 allows for a high level of acceleration, I can grantee that not many other cars will leave you standing at the lights. The level ..." Read review
