Default Honda Concerto

Hi!
I just bought a 1990 Honda Concerto 1.6 L EX, with an automatic gearbox.
Could anybody tell me whether the engine is originally a Rover engine or a
Honda?
Any comment about this car?
Thanks!

The Concerto autos use a Honda engine but the Manuals use a Rover K series
engine - which is prone to head gasket failure regularly.

Thanks! I am glad to have a Honda engine in my car.

Have a look at what I found in old discussion groups (having searched for
"honda concerto rover engine" in Google groups):
