I fear the stately Rover may be outmatched here.

I feel sorry for the Rover.

I like the Rover, but this should be a shoe-in for the 159 so long as people get off their butts to vote (no complaining it goes out if you didn't!)

I don't know if I feel more sorry for the Rover or for anyone unfortunate enough to vote for it in this head to head (I did vote for it in an earlier round though).

That's about the best picture of the Rover I've seen in this competition. In previous rounds I would have said it looks nice, but a little overweight and bulky. In this picture the lines work a lot more and make it look purposeful.

But it doesn't beat the 159.

OK, that's the best picture of it I've seen.

It would make me less decisive, but I've already voted.

I like both of these for very different reasons. I look at the Rover and wonder how it all went so wrong. However, the drama of that 159 front end just edges it.

Story of Rover in a nutshell in some ways!

I don't dislike the Rover. As I think I said in an earlier round it has a stately presence. Whether it's actually beautiful is another matter but it's likeable. A bit like a favourite old uncle you don't see that often but when you do he's always quite avuncular while always wearing a smart suit, tie and shiny shoes.

Even now, the 159 has the chiselled good looks of a male model. No contest.

Easy peasy, Rover's alright but the 159 shades it seven billion times over.
