Turbo Rover is a tax-beater

MG ROVER has launched a new tax-beating turbo-charged Rover 75 to compete with the growing demand for compact-executive cars that combine performance with tax efficient carbon-dioxide ratings.

A new design of turbo-charger has been matched to the 1.8-litre engine to produce 147bhp and a 0-62mph time of 9.1 seconds while emitting 193g/km of CO2, equivalent to a 20% tax rating this year.

The new 1.8T models are available on saloon and Tourer body styles with a range of trim specifications. Available in showrooms from early August, the new 1.8T Saloon models will be priced from £18,295 for the Classic specification to the Connoisseur SE at £22,120.
