In the autumn of 1994, Rover decided to replace the Metro nameplate with a brand new one, the Rover 100, which had already been adopted on continental Europe when the Metro was launched back in 1990 due to the weakness of the Austin marque. Although the mechanics of the car stayed the same, some aesthetic alterations were made, like the addition of new front and rear bumpers, sill covers, rear boot handle and lamps headlamps, bonnet and grille. The car was further styled with brighter paint colors and chrome trims to give it a more upmarket feel. The interior of the car also underwent some slight changes, though due to the lack of change of its basic architecture; the space and design of the car were considered outdated amongst its rivals.
In 1998, the Rover 100 received a poor EuroNCAP crash rating with a one-star Adult Occupant Rating - the only car tested that had this score. The passenger compartment was severely damaged during the frontal-offset test and the results showed a high risk of injury to the driver's body regions. Meanwhile, the Side impact test showed high injury risks too.
