What alternatives should I consider to a used Rover 45 hatchback?

Verdict

Apart from some engineering strengths, the Rover 45 doesn't stack up against its rivals

  • Good range of reliable, well performing petrol engines and decent gearboxes
  • Slipped well behind the class leaders long before production ended in 2005
