Based on the Rover 25, but had an increased ride height and chunkier bumpers, the car was marketed by Rover as an 'urban on-roader'.

The tough looking Streetwise was designed as a two-wheel drive urban car with 4x4 looks. The Streetwise had a 10mm higher ride height over the basic Rover 25, and although it shared many of the common characteristics of the 25, it was visually different with large impact absorbing black plastic bumpers.

Unlike the rest of the Rover and MG range, the Streetwise bumpers were not colour coded. To extend the load space, the Streetwise was fitted with multipurpose roof bars, which also served to distinguish the Streetwise from the ZR and the 25, in addition to the standard 60/40 split rear seats.

Rover sold around 27 examples of this specification during 2003-2006, however only 6 are left on UK roads. This is certainly one for all those quirky collectors out there.
