The Rover 400 announced in 1995 was the of the company`s collaborations with It was based on the same design by the Japanese company`s Civic but was executed with a touch class. Chrome and wood couldn`t, however, hide the that, despite Rover`s this was not a Mondeo-sized car. Escort and you`ll be pleasantly to find the Rover a little than you expect.

It`s a family hatchback all-rounder.

As we`ve said, the 400 is a little than its family hatchback some six inches longer an Escort and a foot longer Peugeot`s 306. Five can be accommodated reasonably comfortably, but impressive is the capacious boot, makes the most of the Rover`s inches. Inside the cabin, isn`t quite as much as the exterior packaging suggests.

user-friendly features include of oddment space for maps, and coins and you`ll find the stereo display is separate the actual unit, making the of it effectively pointless. Every will have a driver`s while a passenger-side `bag was an below SLi level. On the security a dual perimetric and volumetric system with passive immobilisation was also standard the range.

Most versions have front windows and, June 1997, air conditioning.

The M-reg 1.4-litre five-door start from around with more typical starting at around ?800. Pay or ?300 more respectively for i and Si trim. Later 97P cars are ?1,200 and a 99T should cost under ?1,650.

At 1.6-litre you get the choice of saloon or hatch. The 1.6-litre five-door models at about ?700.

Pay ?100 or more respectively for plusher Si and SLi Saloon models are worth less. The 2.0-litre petrol and hatchbacks start at just ?900 in i form on an N-plate.

Pay a ?150-300 premium for Si trim, a premium for SLi or a ?600-?1000 premium for As far as saloon and hatchback 2.0-litre diesels are concerned, the base D starts at around ?1,000. Pay a premium for an SD, an ?200-500 premium for an a ?500-1,000 premium for an SLDi or a premium for a GSDi.

Very the car tends to prove predictably A full service history is

Most entry-level 414s the same twin cam, 1.4-litre K-series 103bhp that was used in the old 200/400 but youll also find SEi models from June with a less powerful unit. The better-equipped manual-transmission 416 got Rover`s newer 1.6-litre developing 111bhp. That rest to 60 in around 10 seconds on the way to a of 118mph.
