The Rover 75

There is a saying which goes something like "to improve on one's weakness, one must first understand what those weakenesses are and one of the best way is to understand what the strength of the enemy is'. I think this is one of the many wise words from the legendary 'Sun Tzu - Art of War' text and I am sure this saying appears in many other cultures as well.

I got a chance to do exactly this when I was invited to attend a media test-drive session of the Rover 75 launch for Malaysia recently, thanks to a wonderful friend I have made from the motoring media. Being a hard-core Honda fanatic, this test-drive was certainly a great 'eye-opener' for me.

Read my impressions on the Rover 75 1.8 Turbo and 2.0 V6 at the The Temple of VTEC Asia.
