What used Rover 45 hatchback will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Rover 45 hatchback?
It's important not to pay over the odds for a used 45, because they are not the cheapest cars to insure in this class.
Fuel economy is good, though. Choose the 1.4, or even the more powerful 1.6 petrol, and provided the engines are in a good state of tune and you're not too heavy on the throttle, you could achieve up to 40mpg.
