What used Rover 25 hatchback will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Rover 25 hatchback?
Used prices nose-dived when Rover went bust, but they've since stabilised. However, they're still nice and low (good news for buyers), just no longer dropping like an elevator in a horror movie (good news for selling on again later).
Routine servicing won't put too much of a dent in your wallet, and neither will filling up at the pumps - just over 40mpg for the 1.1 and 1.4, high-30s mpg for the 1.6 and 1.8, and low-50s for the 2.0 TD.
