For 1953 type 130 reaches 130 km/h with the optional 5CV Sprint 40 hp engine. A 5-door estate car or taxi was introduced.
The first examples of Scarlette were delivered in the early summer of 1953. Only 208 were sold until the fall of 1953 when it was discontinued.
Dyna X was also discontinued in the autumn, except for the break and the furgonette models.
The Junior recieved either a 5 CV or the 5 CV Sprint engines. By February 1953, the roadster was replaced by a convertible with side windows and exterior door handles. From March, a three-seater bench was fitted with a modification to the chassis. The grille with an aluminum blade was replaced by an oval opening inherited from the Dyna X and the dashboard has two dials.

Dyna "54" was presented to the press on 17th June 1953 at the "Les Ambassadeurs" restaurant in Paris. The official launch took place at the Paris Motor Show in October. It is probably the most modern car on the market. It is based on a modular design. The centerpiece is the platform plate forming a superstructure with the body. Thanks to extensive use of aluminium the car weights only 710 kg – 30% less than its rivals. Despite its size (length: 4.577 m, width: 1.668 m, Height: 1.42 m and wheelbase: 2.57 m) the car is capable of a top speed of 130 km/h. The body design is the work of Louis Bionier, the creator of pre-war CS/DS series, Panoramique, Dynamic and the post-war Dyna X. The bonnet and wings are formed from one piece of aluminium. The influence of the aerodynamic 1948 prototype Dynavia is rather obvious. The use of curved front and back window allowes excellent visibility. The spacious interior with a completely flat floor can accommodate up to six people. An innovative one unit instrument panel is located right behind the steering wheel. For safety the dashboard is pushed further away from the passengers and boasts more rounded and padded controls with less projection. In the same vein, the windscreen and rear window are designed to eject in case of accident. The fuel tank is located safely between the rear wheels. Dyna Z is equipped with the engine type S5, from the most sporting version the of Dyna X.
