Photo Tour of a Rover Quintet

The photos in this section detail the Rover Quintet as sold in Australia from 1981 to 1983.  The Quintet was based on the Honda Quint, and modified with Rover branding under an arrangement between Jaguar Rover Australia (JRA) and Honda.

Photos below show the options and trim level of the Quintet, but more importantly the colours and textures of materials, layout and design, and also the extent to which the Rover brand was applied to what is essentially a Honda.  Note that Honda branding is clearly evident throughout the vehicle, including under bonnet embossed and sticker labelling, and stamped/cast into items such as the alloy wheels.
