In December 1994 the revised R6 model appeared.] In the United Kingdom, Rover finally scrapped the Metro nameplate, replacing it with a new name, Rover 100, which had been adopted on continental Europe on the Rover Metro's launch in 1990, due to the weakness of the Austin marque in Europe.
The mechanics of the car remained much the same with 1.1 and 1.4 petrol engines and Hydragas suspension, but there was now the option of a Peugeot-sourced 1.5 diesel rather than the previous 1.4. The exterior was altered in an attempt to disguise the car's age, meet the increased cooling requirements of the Peugeot motor and offer a reduced-format Rover family grille. This was achieved through fitment of new front and rear bumpers, sill covers, rear boot handle and headlamps, bonnet and grille.
This Rover 100 Ascot 3 door is in Tahiti blue with beige interior and comes with a new MOT with no advisories. It has covered only 48000 miles. The vendor describes the car as driving very well and to be in very good condition, there is a dent in the N/S door and O/S/R wheel arch is starting to rust. A great starter classic
