Is Rover 600 a good car?

The ride is good (even better on post-April ’97 models) but some French rivals like the Peugeot 405 and 406 are better. Performance is good and road-holding equally so. Just don’t expect the 600 to respond like a BMW or an Audi A4; with the exception of the 620ti, the emphasis here is far more on luxury.

Where did the Rover 600 car come from?

The exterior of the Rover 600 was designed by Rover, a reskin of the European Honda Accord, also built in the United Kingdom by Honda in Swindon. The core structure and vast majority of the engineering content was sourced from Honda but the vehicles were designed at the same time, with a small Rover team on site in Japan.

Is the Honda Rover 600 a good car?

The Honda underpinnings are sound and the Rover modifications well engineered and built to last. Interiors wear well and the quality of the fittings is good, as is the standard of assembly. As for mechanicals, be sure that you check a service history if the car is spectacularly cheap – it may have more miles than the odometer says.

When did the Rover 600 get phased out?

The 600 was finally phased out in 1999 following the launch of the 75. It would be a great complement to Honda to say you get a classier Accord.
