The Steyr 120 Super, Steyr 125 Super and Steyr 220 were a series of medium-sized cars built by the Austrian firm Steyr-Puch from 1935 to 1941. The moderately streamlined body was designed by Karl Jenschke and was manufactured by Gläser in Dresden. The design had a close resemblance to the smaller Steyr 100. The cars were equipped with a six-cylinder in-line engine (as opposed to the four-cylinder Steyr 100) driving the rear wheels via a four-speed transmission. Front wheels had a transverse leaf spring suspension while the rear swing axle was mounted on quarter-elliptic leaf springs. On the four-door sedan model the rear doors were hinged at the back-end, allowing the B-pillar to be omitted. Until 1936 a total of 1200 Steyr 120 Super were produced.

The 1936 model changes included a wider axle track and a bigger engine even though the power remained at 50 hp. The model was sold as Steyr 125 Super, mainly in Germany. It was offered until 1937 and 200 units were made.

In 1937 the unaltered body was refitted with a still bigger engine and was named Steyr 220. The bore grew to 73 mm, resulting in an output of 55 hp. This model remained in production until 1941 with 5900 units built.
