Rover 416 Overview

The Rover 416 is classed as a small family car and was produced by the British car manufacturers The Rover Group. This car is part of the Rover 400 series and was available as a saloon and estate for the first generation and a saloon and hatchback for the second. This car was designed in collaboration with Honda, with the first version based on the Honda Concerto and the second on the Honda Civic. The Rover 416 was seen as comfortable and very economical cars. They were well equipped and good value for money. The build quality was a bit suspect and the handling wasn’t great either. They did perform well overall. Does this sound like your experience of the 416?

Rover 416 History

The first generation (1990-95) 400 series was basically a saloon version of the 200 series. Most things on this car were identical to the 200 series version and they were both shared design concepts with the Honda Concerto. The 416 used the new Rover K-series engine, as did the other petrol engines of the 400 and 200 series. There was a mild facelift in 1992 which gave the car the new Rover grille design, making it distinct from the Honda version.

The second generation (1995-99) was available as both a hatchback and a saloon. This version was based on the Honda Domani and was no longer so closely associated with the Rover 200 series. This car was marketed as a small family car but was built to compete with cars in the large family car sector to fill a gap that was left with the aging Montego. The Rover 45 replaced the 400 series in 1999.
