    Default peugeot naming system

    i can nearly understand the peugeot numbering system
    can someone explain it? is it explainable?

    101 201 301 401 501 601 701
    102 202 302 402 502 602 702
    103 203 303 403 503 603 703
    104 204 304 404 504 604 704
    105 205 305 405 505 605 705
    106 206 306 406 506 606 706
    107 207 307 407 507 607 707

    first number is size related
    last number is age related

    i thought it went 404 504 405 shouldn't there be a 404.5 then

    thanks

    i know this must be a common question

    it went as 404, 504, 505, 405.... and a lot of those numbers you have stated havenot ben used / may not be used....

    The first digit describes the size of the car (much like a bmw etc...) the 0 in the middle is a Peugeot trademark, and doesn’t really state anything. the number after the 0 describes the model series i.e. generally speaking a larger number equates to a newer car, the odd ball being the 309 which is of a similar age as the 205, 405, 505 etc... the reason for the strange number of the 309 was because it was not a Peugeot, rather a Talbot and Peugeot at the time wanted to disassociate from the rest of the Peugeot range as much as possible.

    the 6 series is designated for touring and "luxury" cars

    AFAIK there was no 7 series peugeot, however the 8 series is left for vans and people movers, and the 9 series has been used for motorsport purposes in the past.

    in recent times the lines have been obscured. With 2 series peugeot's being of similiar or near identical size as 3 series peugeots and 4 series peugeots being of a similiar size to 5 series peugeots.

    the last 5 series peugeot was also rear wheel drive, and i suspect unless peugeot decides to make another rear wheel drive car there will never be another 5 series car.

    so to sum that up, 1 to 3 series peugeots generally relate to small cars and hatchbacks, 4 to 5 series are for medium sized sedans, the 6 series is for touring and luxury cars, the 8 series is for people movers and vans, and the 9 has been used on and off for motor sport puposes.

    the first number is the family of car, ie size

    0 means nothing

    the last digit is the number in the series of the family

    the 5 series was put to rest after 2 models due to the 4 series coming into play and taking over that certain size car

    the 5 series was only ever a stop gap to take peugeot into the 70's but it turned out to be one of peugeots longest running models if not the longest

    the 1 series is also a motor bike as well so it is fairly small

    the 2 series is still a small car and still only has about the same interior room as a 203

    the 3 series has remained around the same size untill the 307 came out but then that has the 07 disease

    the 4 series is now a medium sized family car which took over from the 5 series role

    the 6 series is the flagship model and the only number skipped there was the 606

    the 309 was the talbot

    this subject has been spoken about in depth a few times on here so i have basically rehashed what i wrote last time
    3 x '78 604 SL

    1 x 2018 3008

    1 x 2000 Citroen XM,

    1 x '98 306 GTi6 sadly sold

    1 x secret project

    1 x '98 406 STDT troop carrier and i don't care if it stinks, i don't sniff it's arse Death by wank tank

    1 x '99 406SV 5spd wagon, time to burn more fuel

    1 x 1994 605 SV3.0

    Default Peugeot 507

    I was in France on December and there is a roomer that they are
    planing for 2006 / 7 to come out with such model.
    It will be a model between the 407 and 604.

    So we have to wait and see.
