The Peugeot 403 was designed by Pininfarina and was much roomier than the 203. The engine, a 1468 cc unit, produced 58 hp. It was available as a saloon, a cabriolet (the car Lieutenant Columbo drives in the TV series) and as a 'break'.

The Peugeot 404 came out in May 1960. Like its predecessor the 404 was designed by Pininfarina. Its angular styling was similar to that of the BMC A55 and Fiat 1800.

In all, Peugeot manufactured 2,779,926 404s. It was available in a number of body styles, including a coupé, cabriolet, break (station wagon), familiale (7-seater) and numerous commercial vehicle versions.

Peugeot 203 (1948-1960)

During the war Peugeot had been planning a new 'post-war' model, and were able to introduce the new 203 in the Autumn of 1947. It was a sensationally modern car with a streamlined unitary body and a new four-cylinder 1300 cc engine. Although it would continue to be manufactured for many years longer, its replacement already appeared in 1955: the Peugeot 403.

Peugeot 202

In 1938 Peugeot released the 202, an 1100 cc, four-door saloon that featured headlamps fitted close together just behind the grille (similar to the larger 402 that had been introduced in 1936). Peugeot re-started production in February 1945 after the war and sold no fewer than 14,000 units that year.

This 4-door saloon was powered by a 956 cc petrol engine. The earlier models had a boot; a face lift gave the car a hatch-back and wider headlamps.

In 1951 the Kapitän was modernised and given both front and rear end treatment. Technically it remained pretty much the same as the previous model.

A completely new design appeared in 1954. The old-fashioned looks had given way to the fashionable ponton shape. It still had the same 6-cylinder 2473 cc engine, although now Opel managed to squeeze 68 hp out of it, giving the car a top speed of 138 km/h.

The P4 was based on a design for Studebaker by Raymond Loewy, famous for his streamline shapes. It was announced in the Autumn of 1949. Although the body was completely new, much of the chassis was P3. The P4 75 had the traditional Rover 3-lamp configuration at the front, which earned the car the nickname of Cyclops. The engine was basically the P3 2103 cc six-cylinder in-line unit, but now fitted with an aluminium cylinder head.
The P4 model appeared in the course of the years as the 60, 75, 80, 90, 95, 100, 105, 105R, 105S, and 110.
