There are plenty of UK motorists with a soft spot for Rover but is the soft spot big enough to persuade them to buy a used one? The famous British marque disappeared from showrooms on these shores with the demise of MG Rover in 2005 and the safest bet for used car buyers is to stick to the models produced by MG Rover in the five-year window prior to that date.

A historic view on Rover cars

The line-up kicked off with the Rover 25, a pleasant but unremarkable supermini based on the old Rover 200 platform. Second hand cars are around in good numbers and many people still appreciate the 25's classy looks. The 25 also spawned the Rover Streetwise, a higher-riding version with 4x4 design themes launched in 2003. Also in 2003, the 25 was usurped at the base of the Rover range by the CityRover city car. It's a model that smacked of desperation on this manufacturer's part, being little more than a re-badged version of the Tata Indica. All in all, the used examples that are about today are best avoided. The Rover 45 was a compact saloon built along similar themes to the 25 and based on the old Rover 400. Again, pre-owned examples are not hard to come by. The best Rover second hand car is probably the 75, a sizable saloon that feels more modern than the other models and serves up a comfortable ride. Used second hand models are very affordable now and there was even a 75 Touring estate which is one of the more appealing ways to buy a used Rover.
