The Rover 16 was a medium-sized family car produced by Rover between 1937 and 1940.
The car resembled the existing Rover 10 and the Rover 12 but was slightly longer and featured a more rounded back end. The six-cylinder ohv engine had a capacity of 2,147 cc. A top speed of 124 km/h (77 mph) was claimed. In addition to the four-door saloon, a two-door cabriolet was available.
The Rover 16 saloon returned to production almost unchanged after the war, although the cabriolet version was no longer listed. It remained on sale until it was replaced by the Rover P3 in 1948.
