The ROVER 75 was introduced in Australia during 2001. Australian models have a 2.5 litre engine.

The ROVER 75(E) scored 13.78 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious chest injury was marginal for the driver. The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. A further 2 points were scored in the optional pole test but this only applies to vehicles fitted with head-protecting airbags.

Important note: The European model was tested by EuroNCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags, side airbags and ABS brakes are standard equipment. Head-protecting side airbags are available for some variants.

The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt.
