MG Rover's dealers will no doubt be very happy to have a new small car that fills the gap left years ago when Rover stopped doing the Rover 100 (formerly the Metro). The CityRover (effectively a rebadged Tata Indica, with a few cosmetic changes and an uprated engine) could be just the ticket. It certainly looks the part and is another example of MG Rover making the most of its limited resources. The big question is build quality. Will it be acceptable in a very competitive segment of the market? MG Rover believes it has put the systems in place to ensure that it is. But if the car turns out to have the reliability and build quality of the Indica that sells in India, MG Rover could be left with egg on its face. The proof of the pudding will be in the eating.
