For the first time this compact model produced by a British company was introduced to the general public in 1999, already in 2000 the car became the model of the year. In addition, this model was included in the Rover 200 lineup, which was launched in 1984. This model was preceded by the previously released Rover 200 Series Mark III (R3) chassis of this particular model, slightly modified to avoid handling problems and formed the basis of the Rover 25 model. In addition to the common parts with 200, 25, the model has similar features in front and with the Rover 75.
what about the body, it is worth noting that the model was offered in two versions – 5-door and 3-door hatchbacks. The dimensions of this model are as follows – length 3m 99 cm, width 1m 69 cm, height 1m 41 cm, with a wheelbase 2m 50 cm.
As for the power units, there were 4 options for this model: three 1.4-liter, 1.6-liter, and 1.8-liter gasoline engines. In addition to gasoline units, there was another 2 liter diesel engine. Regarding the gearbox, a 5-speed manual produced by a Ford auto concern was installed on all these engine options. In 200, the list of power units was replenished with one more option: a 16-valve, 1.1 liter gasoline engine.
In June 2001, the manufacturer released an updated version of 25 models called the G ZR. This version received an update not only in the interior or exterior of the car, but also became the owner of a sportier stiffer and lower suspension. The power unit has also changed and now the heart of the car is a 1.8 liter 160 strong gasoline engine capable of speeds up to 209 km / h. It should also be noted that this particular model in 2000 became the best seller among cars in the UK.

In 2004, the main modification and the sporty version of the 25 models underwent a slight restyling, which slightly refreshed the exterior of these two models. Big changes affected primarily the salons of these cars making it more modern. But despite all these changes, the model did not receive due popularity, as a result of which the car was discontinued in 2005. And it was on this model that the entire range of 200 series was completed.
