I have owned a 45 Connesseur 20TD which is not mentioned in your listing. It has full leather and air con and sunroof. It has covered 95,000 miles is excellent on fuel economy and has pulling power I can only say is impressive.
A company that is no longer in existance is a shame but a worthwhile car to buy. It has good interior space and a boot to match. It draws attention from passersby and also gives a feel of quality. At speed however, it does attract wind noise expecially when reaching the 90s, but can get upto that speed without any problems. Overall I am impressed with the car and hope to have more happy miles out of her.
The noise level in this car is so unlike other continental cars. It's a bit noisy on highways. The gear ratios for first and second gear are rough, but once you are off, everything is fine.
I find this 45 a classic car to own and drive on the road. The stability is within control and the turning radius is alright. The interior is comfy and elegent. Petrol consumption is OK if steptronic is not used regulary with the sports function.
I find it exotic to own one. I have no problems with this car. And it's my fourth Rover. The only fault in this car is they shouldn't have used a CVT gearbox for a 1.8A six-speed steptronic car, as CVT(s) can breakdown.
So far so good. It's a worthy car to buy and enjoy. Not for rough drivers and racers.
I know this car should be extinct by now, and I know this is a Rover but its not that bad - you can get a lot worse, like a proton.
The Rover 45 has at least received a bit of a face-lift and it's done it the world of good, it looks stylish and it is very comfotable.
The engine I would recommend would be the 111bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel. It still has that old diesel clatter but it does smooth out at cruising speeds and its tourquey and has a reaonable amount of punch, while still offering 50mpg.
This is a British car and Rover is the British car maker that once was like Rolls Royce. But remember, if you want this firm to survive the next ten years before it ends up as Daewoo or something terrible, you need to help it gain profits before it becomes extinct.
The Rover 45 is really not as bad as most people make out, so give it a chance - test drive it and see for yourself.
