2001 in motoring
One year after being sold by BMW, MG Rover launched the ZR, ZS, and ZT/ZT-T sports models. The ZR is based on the Rover 25 supermini. The ZS is based on the Rover 45 family hatchback and saloon. The ZT is based on the Rover 75 executive sedan. The ZT-T is the MG version of the Rover 75 estate.
Jaguar introduced the X-Type, a compact executive saloon with four-wheel drive that shares its underpinnings with Ford's recently launched front-wheel drive Mondeo. It also shares its 2.5 V6 engine with the Mondeo.
The Peugeot 306 made way for the new 307 and Europe's motoring journalists voted it European Car of the Year. Production of the 306 estate and cabriolet will continue for another year until the 307-based successors are launched.
The Renault Clio supermini received a makeover.
The new Corolla family car was launched.
