2002 Rover 45 Review
45 — I love it, it is very comfortable and very smooth, in this sense it is head over shoulders above any comparable car. I really like the looks it is far more classy than a focus or golf. Despite the looks and the comfort the handling is brilliant, it is very grippy and you can feel exactly what is going on. The 1.8l K series engine is sublime, very touquy low down with plenty of power across the rev range.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: looks, handling, the sound the K makes when pushed and so comfortable
Cons: build quality isnt perfect but does equal vauxhall ford etc.
