Rover Metro Overview
The Rover Metro is classed as a supermini economy car which was produced by the British automobile manufacturing company The Rover Group. This vehicle was in production from 1990-94 and the name of the vehicle was changed in 1994 to Rover 100. Previously the Metro had been marketed under the Austin Metro and MG Metro brands of Rover. These cars are very economical little cars which are surprisingly comfortable, even on long distance drives. They are good fun to drive and especially useful around town, fitting into the tightest of spaces. The fuel prices are very cheap and these cars are reliable little runners. The steering is not great but they are value for money cars. Does this sound like your experience of this car?
Rover Metro History
The Rover Metro (1990-94) replaced the Metro which only had a model badge on the car with no manufacturer badge for three years after the Austin name was discontinued in 1987. The new Rover branded Metro had a total restyling giving it a much more modern look with a new range of engines. The vehicle was given a new suspension system which was brought in to improve the longstanding handling issues of the Metro. The vehicles new interior and exterior design was seen as a real improvement and brought the vehicle up to contemporary standards. The Rover 100 name replaced the Metro in 1995.
The Rover Metro was available in 1.1 and 1.4L petrol engines and 1.4L diesel engine. The 1.4L diesel engine and 1.1L petrol engines are the most economical, offering up to 50mpg.
