The frontal impact test was staged back in spring 2000. The side impact took place then, too, but problems demanded a re-test. But then, testing was suspended after events threw Rover's future into doubt. Once the car-maker was back on track, it resumed: and, here, repeated side impact results feature along with the original outcome for the frontal impact. The Rover 25 is a reworking of the mid-1990s 200 model and the protection it offers is below that of some modern designs. The protection it gave in the frontal impact was weak although it proved creditable in the side impact considering its lack of airbags. Protection for children was poor.
