Rover insurance

Over the years, Rovers have ranged from practical to sports cars, experimental cars and even limousines. Even though the company name had been passed around for years, the Rover badge and its motors remain commonplace on our roads. Models like the 25, 45 and 75 are still preferred by thousands of motorists.

Rover's range of motors fall under a variety of categories, so it can be difficult to predict potential insurance costs without taking a closer look at different factors. Insurance companies calculate premiums based on a range of factors such as value, power, potential repair costs and your driving history.

  • Typically, the smaller the engine size, the lower the insurance, so the premium for the 1.1l Rover 25 could be less than then the 2.5l Rover 75
  • Replacement Rover parts may be difficult and costly to find, which could push your insurance premium up

We've put some information together to help you estimate your premiums for some of Rover's models. The tables below could help you get a better idea of potential insurance and running costs by listing some of Rover's models, arranged by their age, engine size, as well as typical insurance groups and tax range.

Rover 25

The Rover 25 is a small hatchback. It sits between the super mini and the medium sized hatchback segments. The benefit of this is that it can cater for your luggage and carry passengers in reasonable comfort, but can be gentle on fuel consumption.

25 (99 - 04) 1.1 - 2.0 9 - 15 F, G, I, J
25 (04 - 05) 1.1 - 2.0 7 - 17 G, I, F 

Rover 45

Previously known as the Rover 400, the Rover 45 was available in saloon and hatchback models. The car is very 'Rover' with traditional Rover styling lines and chrome decals.

Rover 200

The Rover 200 series was a popular range of hatchback cars built before Rover went into administration in the early part of the 21st century. As a result they can only be bought second-hand and quite a few are starting to show their age.

Rover Mini

The Mini is a resilient little motor; it has resisted several attempts on its life and retained its iconic image throughout its history. This particular edition of the Mini was manufactured by Rover between 1986 and 2000, and although performance isn't its strong point the Mini is a fun car to drive.

grey avatar silhouette of person Transfer to the vendor site was fine but the site was not an online site so phone calls had to be made. This very much negates some of the reasons why buyers use the web. The site was however easy to use and provided as much information as one would require to make a decision.
