Great Autocar Streetwise Review

Autocar have an full page spread on the StreetWise.

It's a very good review, not too much detail but they have driven it and say it's ride is in between the 25 and ZR, which is good, of course.


"Pleasant package with decent prospects"

"Aims at attracting younger buyers - and works"

'A car based on the 25, attracting buyers that would not buy the original car'

Says initial tests suggest young buyers like the car and suggests the price tag isn't an issue either.

Good on ya Autocar. This is what motoring journalism should be about (note to TG)

Nice review - and did you see the concept from Jaguar - it looks stunning! MG-R should look at it and try to devise a Rover that looks this good.

Streetwise review was pretty fair all things considered.

Funny you shoudl say that cos I was kinda thinking that Jaguar have been looking at Rover.

You could stick a rover badge on that thing and it wouldnt look out of place.

Think the new Jag is superb - exactly what that particular company should be doing.

As for Autocar, I think that me and John Switzer will be discreetly sliding it in front of a pile of "Top Gear's" in a newsagents near you, soon.

Did anyone notice that the codename for that Jaguar concept? Put a zero at the end and you'll get RD-60!
