Rover 420 Overview

The Rover 420 is classed as a small family car and was produced by the British automobile manufacturing company The Rover Group. This vehicle was in production from 1990 to 1999 when it was replaced with the Rover 45. The 420 is part of the Rover 400 series which also includes the 414 and 416. MG Rover was the new owners of Rover from 2000 and this was the main reason for the change. These cars were real value for money and were well built. They are reliable cars with the replacement parts being very reasonably priced. The diesel version is especially value for money, with a good engine and good fuel economy. These cars perform well and are definitely worth considering. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Rover 420?

Rover 420 History

The first generation (1990-95) of the Rover 400 series was available in 5 different engines and the 400-series is a saloon version of the 200-series hatchback. This vehicle was also sold as the Honda Concerto as the design was a joint venture between Rover and Honda. There was also an estate version available for the 400-series. The 2.0L engine used in the Rover 420 was from the 800-series cars. In 1992 there was a mild facelift which saw the Rover grille being reintroduced, making it more distinctive from the Honda version. The second generation (1995-99) was now available in both saloon and hatchback versions. It was no longer based on the 200-series but now based on the Honda Domani. Although this car is classed as a small family car, it is more like a mid-sized family car in size. Production of the 400 series ended in 1999, being replaced with the Rover 45.
