Reasons for

Maximal power

105 > 103 hp
The horsepower is a characteristic that majority of car fans pay the biggest attention to. In this comparison, it is the MG ZR which has by 2 percent horsepower more than the Rover 25, which makes this vehicle somewhat better in terms of high speed. With more horsepower the MG should as well give slightly better efficiency in specific speeds.

If you need a vehicles for long cruises, which could load more luggage , take the MG ZR. The Rover 25 Streetwise is equiped with by 1 l smaller luggage compartment than the Rover 25 Streetwise so you would be able to put in the trunk a bit less. When it comes to the trunk also check its width length and height which have appreciable impact on loading possibility .

1,090 > 1,084 l


4,011 > 3,975 mm
The MG ZR is 36 mm longer when compared to the Rover. The length of the car is important when it comes to travelling comfort and space in the trunk. The MG ZR preasumbly will be offering to it's users more space for legs. Aditionally the MG ZR 1.4 105HP will be better driven but the Rover will be a slightly easier for parking due to shorter length .

Model release date

Because of the fact that the Rover's production started only 2 years before the MG ZR, the distance in technology used in both vehicles is not really big, however, the MG may have a bit more new solutions applied in it.

Reasons for


1,692 > 1,691 mm
Width of a vehicle influences on the amount of space for passengers as well as stability while driving. The Rover is widther only by 1 mm than the MG ZR and is not really worth considering. The medium for the „small family cars” class equals to approximately 1,703 mm and is by 11 mm smaller than the same attribute of the Rover 25 Streetwise 1.4 103HP manual.

Number of doors

5 > 3
It seems to be quite obvious that the five-door Rover 25 Streetwise 1.4 103HP manual is more usable and if you regularly drive with more than one people then this car is only possible option for you. The biggest advantage of a five-door vehicle is that it’s not only easier for passengers to get into the back but it’s also easier to put luggage and cargo into the vehicle when the rear seats are folded down. However, three-door cars like the MG ZR very often look more dynamic and sporty and for young drivers who rarely have more than one passengers in the car the MG may be better one, the more so for being a little bit cheaper than the same model with more doors.


1,500 > 1,401 mm
The higher a car is, the better is the comfort of getting in to it and greater capacity of putting massive amount of thinks to it. The difference between these two cars that amounts to 99 mm in favor of the Rover 25 is insignificant and should not be really noticeable.
