The Metro was the car that was supposed to save Rover. Ultimately, you would have to say that it failed - though heroically. Early Austin Metro first generation models are best forgotten unless you're on a particularly restricted budget, but the reborn version, launched in 1990 with a Rover badge on the bonnet, was a very competitive little car.
It lived on from 1994 until 1998 as the Rover 100 but you'll still find plenty in used car lots across the country badged 'Metro'. Since there are so many around, you can afford to take your time and be choosy. And end up with a bargain that's remarkably good fun to drive.
So, strong value, low running costs and pretty stylish looks. Overall then, unless you're thinking of investing in a Korean, Malaysian or Eastern Bloc product, a used Metro/100 makes supermini sense; and it's British from badge to bootlid.
