On Rover 800 saloon and fastback models the top-of-the-range Sterling will become available powered by the 2.0-litre T-series engine costing £22,195 (delivered price excluding road fund licence) as well as the 2.5-litre engined model costing £25,695 down from £28,946; 820i and 825Di models - which will both cost £18,695 up from £18,446 and down from £20,946 respectively - also feature electric rear windows, centre interior light with reading lights, front fog lamps and leather trimmed arm rests, and a new £21,195 825i powered by the manufacturer's KV6 engine carries the same specification.
In addition 820Si, 825Si and 825SDi feature a boot-mounted six-disc CD autochanger with models costing £20,195, £22,695 and £20,195 respectively from £19,946, £22,446 and £22,446 respectively. The specification enhancements to those three models bring them into line with the 820SLi, 825SLi and 825SLDi which are dropped from the range. The line-up is completed by the Vitesse at £22,695 (£22,446).
Changes to the 800 Coupe range see the £30,446 V6 Coupe now badged Sterling (costing £25,695) and the £26,446 Turbo Coupe now badged Vitesse Coupe (£22,695) joined by a new £22,195 2.0 Sterling.
CONFIRMATION of 600 changes have yet to be received, but as well as air conditioning becoming standard across the range - although the entry-level 618i is available without the feature at £14,795 - alloy wheels have been added on all 2.0 and 2.3 litre variants.
In February the revised 600 line-up - with the 618i with air conditioning costing £15,495 (£15,301) - will be further boosted by the addition of a 620Di costing £15,995 and sharing the same trim level as the 618i.
Remaining 600 range new prices with old prices in brackets are: 618Si £16,495 (£16,301), 620Si £17,795 (£17,446), 620SLi £18,595 (£18,946), 620GSi £19,595 (£20,446), 620SDi £17,095 (£17,446), 620SLDi £18,595 (£18,946), 620ti £20,795 (£20,446), 623GSi £21,795 (£24,446).
