Rover 600

Of all the Rovers to choose from for winter transport, why pick the 600 of 1993-99? Because its combination of Honda underpinnings and typically Rover levels of comfort means you’re getting a quality saloon that should be both reliable and a pleasure to drive. For a car that feels surprisingly upmarket, it’s also very cheap – with MoT’d examples from £500, and low-mileage gems from £1000-1200.

Despite being Accord-based the 600 was completely reskinned to give it its own identity. Engines were a mix of Honda and Rover, with the 618, most 620s and the 623 all using Japanese powerplants.
