Who are Rover?
Rover was a British car manufacturer, and was the original creator of the Land Rover (which has since become its own stand-alone brand). The company was founded in 1878 but is sadly no longer in operation. The good news is that it’s still possible to purchase Rover vehicles second-hand.
The most popular car in our Rover top ten list is the Rover 25 - It came out in 1999 and was manufactured until 2005. When it was new, it came with a 1.4, 1.6 or 2 litre engine and later models have wood or leather trim, whichever takes your fancy.
Another favourite for our Rover fans is the Rover 75. The Rover 75 actually rates number 2 in our top ten of Rovers cars.

Can I cut the cost of my Rover car insurance?
You may be able to lower your premium, yes. Firstly, be careful when it comes to modifications. If a more powerful engine has been added, the insurance provider may take this as a risk that you’ll drive faster and have an accident. So, in that case, it’s likely your insurance premium will be high. Insurance providers also think that modified cars look better and catch the attention of thieves, who might steal the car, or vandals, who might damage it.
Some modifications are seen as beneficial, however. For example, putting in a car immobiliser, a tracking system or an alarm. These help to prevent your vehicle from being stolen and could lower your insurance premium. However, you may need to speak directly with your insurance provider to see these reductions reflected in your premium.
Another way to possibly reduce the cost of your premium is to avoid any unnecessary add-ons and to pay the full cost of your car insurance upfront.
