The 203 was Peugeot’s first all-new post-war design and although it lacked the 202’s idiosyncratic styling, it was a groundbreaking technical package. The alloy-headed engine and hydraulic brakes were novelties, while the independent front suspension and rack and pinion steering set the company’s products on their way towards a reputation for dynamic pleasure. Like all Peugeots for the next 30 years, the 203 enjoyed a long production run – 12 years – and ended up donating much of its platform to its replacement. An endearing French classic.
