Standard added a larger capacity Ten model to its small car range in 1954. The Ten used an all new 948cc version of the four cylinder engine already in use in the Eight. Like the Eight the Ten engine also featured overhead valves and a four speed gearbox. The Ten also shared the same four door bodyshell with the Eight, but was thankfully better equipped than its smaller sister.

The Standard Ten came with a proper, full width chrome grille, hub-caps, wind-down windows and an external boot-lid. Optional extras included overdrive transmission and Standards own (temperamental!) semi-automatic gearbox known as "Standrive".
