Rover 216 Coup — Its a coupe, fairly good acceleration for what it is 0-60 9.4 seconds, and it goes where i want it to. Doesent cost much to run its been doing about 40 miles to the gallon. Its right fun to drive racign style seats. Wish i could have afforded the insurance on the 1.8VVC or the 2ltr turbo ones but meh i can get one in a year or two

Pros: Looks, handling, Performance for a 17year olds car

Cons: I have to go buy a spoiler because mine was  cheap model when it was new so it doesent have one

Rover 216 Hatchback....wicked — Very nice small car, looks great, hasn't had any problems at all. Handles well, pretty good with gas consumption, especially on open road.. loves gravel roads (car came with Pirelli tyres). Very good stereo for sounds, great for for sitting back on the motorway and cruising or caning it around gravel road corners... Awesome!!

Pros: handling, fuel consumption,

Cons: nothing I know of!!

Comfy And Reliable — Good engine and gearbox, handles like a blacmange but very comfy! Can also fit an amazing amount into it, and has great fuel economy, around 40mpg.

Pros: Reliable, cheap to run, comfortable, fast for a 1.6

Cons: Not so good on corners, no ABS, somewhat noisy on motorway
