What Car? says

1 out of 5 stars

For It’s nippy, there’s lots of rear space and it’s cheap

Against Ride, refinement and quality are horrible

Verdict Very cheap, but there’s little else going for it – there are much better alternatives

Go for… 1.4 Select

Avoid… Solo trim

Rover CityRover Hatchback
  • 1. We’ve heard reports that oil and water leaks are commonplace
  • 2. There's lots of interior space and the CityRover is quite brisk for a city car
  • 3. The cheap interior can develop rattles, and the door locks have also suffered their fair share of faults
  • 4. Even the newest examples will cost you much less than half the CityRover’s original price
  • 5. The 84bhp 1.4-litre engine manages only 37.9mpg, which is much worse than its rivals
