ENHANCED PERFORMING DIESEL MODELS

MG Rover has announced an extension to its diesel model line-up with the introduction of a higher output engine. Available in January, the MG ZR and ZS, and Rover 25 and 45 utilise the Longbridge-built L Series turbo diesel engine, now engineered with an increased tune to produce greater operating performance, but with no penalty in CO2 emissions.

Power increases from 101 to 113Ps and torque from 240 to 260Nm, while the CO2 emissions figure at 150g/km is identical to the current 101Ps models. This is exceptionally low, even by diesel car standards and translates into low operating levels of taxation for business users who want to benefit at all levels from increased power and performance.

Compared with the current diesel line-up, these new models have identical trim specifications, but offer more impressive levels of performance and similar frugal levels of fuel economy. Identified as the Rover 25 Turbo Diesel (113Ps) and MG ZR 115, ABS with ventilated front and solid rear disc brakes is featured as standard over the regular Turbo Diesel specification. ABS is already specified as standard on the Rover 45 and MG ZS.

Rover 25 and 45 Turbo Diesel (113Ps) Models

The Rover 25 is available in two trim levels Rover 25 turbo diesel (113Ps) iE and iL. The Rover 45 has three trim levels iE, iL and iXL in 5-door Hatchback and Classic, Club and Connoisseur for the 4-door Saloon. Option availability is in line with the current 101Ps models.
