MG Rover is preparing to launch the first Rover production upper-medium estate, the 75 Tourer which will be priced from £17,445 when it goes on sale on July 27.

A quarter of all 75s sold are expected to be the new estate, which is also the first all-new car since MG Rovers' creation a little over a year ago.

In addition to the standard saloon specification, all Tourer models feature, black satin finish roof rails, one piece top hinged tailgate with separate opening tailgate glass section, 60:40 split folding rear seat, rear wash wipe (works automatically when reverse gear is selected), roller blind load space cover, underfloor stowage compartment, flour load lashing points and load space side securing hooks.

Additional option exclusive the 75 Tourer (pictured) include self-levelling suspension for £350 and an integral load restraint system for £150.

Tourer pricing will be £950 above the saloon model prices, with the range starting at £17,445 for a 1.8 Classic to £25,835 for the fully specified 2.5-litre V6 Connoisseur SE.

Maximum load space is 680-litres if the boot is filled to the roof with the loadspace cover removed. The maximum capacity with the seats folded is 1,222-litres.

The Tourer will be available with 1.8, 2.0 V6, 2.5 V6 and 2.0 CDT engines and Classic, Classic SE, Club, Club SE, Connoisseur and Connoisseur SE trims.
