Body style: Convertible (spider/spyder, cabrio/cabriolet, drop/open/soft top)
Segment: Coupe Cabrio

Rover designed the 100 series as its entry-level lineup as a successor of the then defunct Austin Metro range and produced it under its own badge with a new nameplate since 1990.

In the UK, it was named Rover Metro, but in the rest of Europe, it was known as Rover 100. Thus, it made a clear connection with the rest of the range, which featured nameplates such as 200, 400, 600, or 800. It competed in the supermini segment and, starting in 1994, the car was known as Rover 100 in England.

The most important change was on the exterior, where the 100 received a refreshed bodywork with rounded corners and edges. As the world entered into a new design era, Rover adapted, and the 100 showed a new set of headlights with clear, corner-mounted turn signals. In addition, there was a choice of eight trim levels ranging from the 111 to the 114 GSi versions. The base model received steel wheels and rear washer-wiper, while the range-topping models featured light-alloy wheels and a small roof-spoiler atop the tailgate.

Inside, Rover tried to emphasize its luxurious past and provided the 114 with an option for a leather-wrapped interior, but most of its range featured fabric upholstery, cranked windows, and a cassette player fitted as standard. While the front bucket seats were slim and looked flimsy, the rear bench was as modern as it could for those times. In addition, it featured a fold-down system, thus enlarging the trunk area, which, otherwise, was good only for weekly shopping for one person.

Under the hood, apart from the gasoline, Rover-sourced, K-Series engines, the carmaker offered an option for two diesel versions carried over from Peugeot.
