The 10/20 PS was a middle-class automobile manufactured by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie from 1909 to 1912. It was a larger version of the 10/18 PS, which was sold from 1908 to 1910. It was subsequently replaced by the 8/20 PS.

The 10/20 PS was fitted with a 2410cc four-cylinder engine capable of generating 20 bhp (14.7 kW) of output at 1400 min-1. Engine power was transferred to a leather cone clutch to a three- or four-speed gearbox, and from there via a propshaft to the rear wheels. The vehicle had a top speed of between 65 and 69 km/h and consumed 15 to 16 l of petrol per 100 km. It weighed between 950 and 1100 kg, and rode on a 2780 to 2985 mm wheelbase.

This leaf-sprung vehicle with wooden wheels and tires was offered as a double phaeton for 9000 goldmark, a saloon for 11,000 mark, and a landaulet for the same price as the saloon.
