History of the Austin Maestro


The Maestro was devised as part of British Leyland's scheme to introduce a new range of mass-market models to be sold as the best new cars for the average UK consumer, whilst being equipped with state of the art components and technology. The Maestro replaced the Austin Allegro and Maxi. The Montego (Which was developed on the same platform) would replace the Austin Ambassador and Morris Ital. The Austin Maestro was given its name as Maestro was actually the second choice for the name of the car that would eventually become the Austin Metro.

The Maestro was initially well-received. Its roominess was described as a critical selling point, especially compared to its rivals, the Ford Sierra and Vauxhall Cavalier. However, the car soon built a reputation for poor build quality and unreliability. The Car was a reasonable success for British Leyland but it wasn't quite what they had hoped for as in 1987, Sales started to decline. The Maestro cars were rebadged as Rovers in 1987, little was changed in the Maestro, it was kept in production mainly to cater for the budget end of the market and was still sold as fleets, meanwhile, Rover's models were pushed further upmarket. Standard production of the Maestro was discontinued in 1994, being replaced by the Rover 600. Some Maestro cars were produced in kit form, but this didn't last, as BMW's takeover of Rover shut this production down.
