PEUGEOT 201

Saloon, coupé, saloon de luxe, coupé de luxe, sports roadster, commercial saloon, tourer, cabriolet.

With all of 23bhp, this one needed some horrendous back axle ratios to haul saloons along; a 7.75:1 makes them real buzz boxes. Ratios on the three speed 'box were wide and low (they had to be), but the 201 was a doughty workhorse in the best French small car tradition. Suspension unusual, with transverse leaf spring at front, quarter elliptics at rear. £205 would buy a saloon in '32.
