On May 12, 1960, Peugeot unveiled a new model intended to mark its era: the Peugeot 404. Designed in the Sochaux design offices, this elegant sedan embodied the know-how and ambition of the French brand on the automobile market.

The beginnings of the Peugeot 404 :

From its launch, the 404 seduced the public with its distinctive design, signed Pininfarina. Its line, both elegant and modern, was highlighted by recessed front headlights and a prominent grille, quickly becoming a visual signature of the brand.

The 404 range extended beyond the classic sedan, also including coupé, convertible, and station wagon versions. These variations allowed Peugeot to offer a diversified lineup, meeting the varied needs of its clientele.

The characteristics and performances of the Peugeot 404 :

The Peugeot 404 is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, originally developing 72 hp. This engine, notable for its robustness and reliability, allows the sedan to cruise comfortably at motorway speeds, with a maximum speed of around 145 km/h.

The 404 stood out not only for its design and its engine but also for its technological innovation. It was one of the first production cars equipped with a fuel injection system, thus offering better performance and optimized fuel consumption.

With its solid construction and its ability to brave the most difficult road conditions, the 404 has acquired a reputation for endurance, illustrated by its numerous successes in international rallies. These victories strengthened Peugeot’s prestige on the world automobile scene.

Produced until 1975, the Peugeot 404 remained popular well beyond its production, embodying the golden age of French automobiles. Its heritage endures, symbolizing the elegance, performance and reliability that characterize the Peugeot brand.
