Rover 60 or Sixty (P4) Saloon is continued with detail modifications which include a modified grille and a redesigned rear number plate mounting. These changes also apply to the 75, 90 and 105 models – the 105R had been discontinued in the summer of 1958 and the 105S became known as the 105 until it was also dropped, later in 1959 along with 60, 75 and 90.

Rover 80 Saloon was introduced in the summer of 1959 as a replacement for the 75 Saloon which had been in production for approximately ten years. Bodily similar to its predecessor, the new model feature a four-cylinder, 2286-cc, ohv engine which develop 77 bhp at 4250 rpm, overdrive, servo-assisted front disc brakes as standard, and a combined starter/ignition switch. Also available was the larger engined 100 Saloon.
