With the arguable exception of Mercedes, Peugeot has the oldest and simplest system of model designations in the motor industry. This is how it has worked for more than 80 years. The first of three digits gives a rough indication of the size of a car – a one or a two at the beginning means a small car, five or six means a big one – while the final digit indicates model generation changes; the 305 was the direct replacement for the 304, for example. The middle digit is always a zero, or at least it was until a system of double zeroes was introduced for people carriers, such as the 3008, and 4x4s.
