2003 Rover CityRover hatchback

The Rover CityRover is a supermini car that was marketed by the former British manufacturer MG Rover under the Rover marque, between 2003 and 2005. Launched in 2003, the car was a rebadged version of Tata Indica.

The CityRover’s performance was considered poor for a small car in contemporary road tests, and its lack of quality, poor road handling and high price were not well received.

Production of the CityRover ceased in April 2005, along with the rest of the MG Rover range, when the company went bankrupt.

The CityRover was offered with only one engine: a Peugeot derived 1,405 cc (1.4 L) four cylinder, eight valve engine producing 85 bhp (63 kW; 86 PS) and 88 lb⋅ft (119 N⋅m). It could accelerate to 60 mph (100km/h) in 11.9 seconds and had a top speed of 100 mph (160.9 km/h). It could manage up to 46.6 mpg (10.63 kmpl)

The CityRover was manufactured by Tata Motors, at their factory in Pune, India. Alterations for the British market included new bumpers, Rover badge grille, 14″ wheels, and new suspension settings.
