Archive : Rover 75 pricing announced

Rover has confirmed launch prices of the all-new Rover 75. Starting at £19,525 (on the road) for the 1.8 ‘Club’ model, the 16 model range line-up extends through to the 2.5 V6 ‘Connoisseur’ priced at £25,625.

The car, which was revealed at the Birmingham International Motor Show in October 1998, will ultimately be available in three ‘comfort’ levels; Classic, Club and Connoisseur.

The Club and Connoisseur ranges will be available at sales launch. The Classic version, with prices beginning at £18,250, will be on sale by the end of the year. Rover 75 will be delivered to customers from mid-June.

The Rover 75 takes its name from the classic Rovers of the 1940s & ’50s and is the result of a £700 million investment in design, development, and new facilities at Rover Oxford. The car is the first all-new Rover model for 20 years and is designed to be a thoroughly modern car whilst carrying forward the traditional British design cues of the classic ’40s and ’50s Rovers.

The Rover 75 has a choice of four engines; 1.8, 2.0 V6 and 2.5 V6 petrol and a 2.0 diesel, and two gearbox configurations; a five speed Getrag gearbox or a new five speed JATCO electronic automatic transmission.

The Rover 75 has been designed to be ‘the best front-wheel drive car in the world’, providing outstanding comfort levels in a ‘solid as a rock’ body which has twice the rigidity of Rover 600.

The use of zinc coasted high-strength steels, four-wheel sensing ABS, driver and passenger front & side airbags and electronic brake distribution means that occupants are protected by a ‘shield of safety’.

Comfort and elegance of the vehicle is exemplified, even at base level, by such features as electric front windows, an integral pollen filter and a luxurious interior with a full-width wooden dashboard, dual-hardness ‘armchair’ seats, leather trim and six speaker radio/cassette.

Complementing each ‘comfort’ level are Special Equipment (SE) models. These models are an integral part of the Rover 75 line-up, tailored to offer customers a wider choice of the most popular options and features.
