The Stoewer V 5 is a small car, which was made by Stoewer between 1931 and 1932.

The Great Depression caused the company to bring out smaller and more affordable vehicles. The new car had front-wheel drive and swing axles. They were the first German production cars with this configuration (before the DKW F1).

The front wheels hanging from the lower wishbones and were suspended with a transverse leaf spring. The rear wheels were also suspended. The car had a 4-cylinder SV front-mounted V-engine with a displacement of 1.2 litres, which developed 25 hp. A 3-speed gearbox was fitted.

Alongside the standard model, a sport model was produced that had an engine that delivered 30 bhp.

By 1932 a total of 2,100 cars were made.
