Enhanced Rover Models with Added Security and Style


THE 2003 Model Year Rover 25 and 45 ranges have many new features for enhanced convenience, security and style, which strengthen their 'family links' with the award-winning Rover 75.

In the UK the latest Rover 25 and 45 ranges share the market debut of the new Trafficmaster Traffic Alert system, fitted to both ranges. Investment in these improved small and medium Rovers has been focused on delivering genuine improvements and benefits.

New technology and convenience features

As standard equipment on all UK market 25 and 45 models, a new traffic congestion-warning device is built into a new digital fascia clock.

This uses signals from the Trafficmaster network to provide live traffic information, warning of congestion on motorways and trunk roads in three zones - three motorway junctions or up to 5, 10 or 15 miles on trunk roads from the car's current position (full details available in a separate release).

Further driver-assistance technology is introduced in the form of rear parking distance sensors, standard on all Rover 45s, optional on the 25 range, while a Becker Satellite Navigation unit is now available as an option across both ranges. This Becker '1DIN' navigation unit incorporates a high spec CD tuner, and can play CDs whilst navigating the driver to his/her destination. With the UK and European markets contained on a single CD, the unit can store the last 50 destinations within its memory for ease of retrieval.

In recognition of modern requirements, the cigar lighter has been replaced by a power socket, for mobile phones or other power accessories as a standard fitting on all models. The cigar lighter can be substituted as an identified no cost option. To cater for all these new factory-fit features, upgraded wiring harnesses have been developed.

New interior 'see and touch' features

Much of the 2003 improvement programme centres on the 25 and 45 cabin ambience, picking up some cues from the much-admired Rover 75 interior. For example there are new instrument graphics on 'parchment' coloured dials similar to those of the 75, new graphics for the heating and ventilating controls, new steering wheel and gear knob designs and a new straight- grain Rosewood effect for fascia and door garnish inserts. New, modern- style ICE equipment from the Blaupunkt range is now specified across the 25 and 45 ranges.

A new range of seat fabrics and interior colourways give a significant lift to the interiors, especially on the 45, which now has a duo-tone fascia. The two new interior trim colourways are 'Puma' - a dark blue/grey, and 'Smokestone', a light grey. 'Geo', 'Alpha' and 'Mode' fabrics are used in attractive new seat panel combinations according to model, with leather retained for the top trim levels. …
