Pricewatch: Rover vs MG

FLEET News looks at how new cars taken on to a typical fleet might perform over the next three years/60,000 miles.

Using data from used car expert CAP Motor Research, we benchmark two cars against each other to see how they perform over the traditional fleet cycle. This week, we compare the luxurious Rover 75 1.8T Contemporary with its sportier brother the MG ZT 1.8T +.
