What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Big, cheap and good fun with the right engine

Against Styling might be too lairy for some tastes

Verdict A decent sports saloon for buttons

Go for… 1.8 ZT+

Avoid… 4.6-litre V8

MG Rover ZT Saloon
  • 1. If you go for the 1.8, keep the coolant levels topped up at all times because it’s prone to overheating and blowing its head gasket
  • 2. Suspension problems can be hard to fix, so steer clear of cars with signs of uneven tyre wear
  • 3. The boot is a bit small considering the size of the car, and visibility isn’t all that great
  • 4. The manufacturer’s warranty is worthless so you might want to budget for an aftermarket package
  • 5. There's plenty of passenger space and lots of kit as standard
