2003 Rover - Austin 45 iL 1.4 petrol from UK and Ireland
Good value small family motoring
Nothing so far ;)
I find the Rover 45 a huge improvement over the 400 where you cannot see it, which is a good thing, because the shape is very classy.
The steering is sharp and responsive compared to the R 400, and the suspension is very sporty. It gives you more confidence when cornering fast compared to the old soft but comfortable R 400.
Thanks to the new seats, there is more legroom in the back, but the headroom has not been improved. The driver seat adjusts for high and has a lumbar support - very useful for long journeys.
I like the white dials.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
