1985 Rover 200 Review
My 2nd Car (not Actual Pic!) — This was the second car I owned, I got shunted in my Vauxhall so had to change cars. I thought the Rover would be a better car than the Vauxhall, I was wrong. Although the interior was better (fake stick -on wooden panels did it for me!), the performance was very poor. I had the 1.4 litre version, probably the 1.6 was okay, but who cares? Personally I thought the build quality was poorer than the Vauxhall`s too.
Pros: Looked posh with fake-wood dashboard. Stylish Grill and British badge.
Cons: Poor performance of 1.4 engine. Wanted by all grandparents!
