In 1937 two new Wanderer model series appeared: the W 23 with 6-cylinder engine, and the W 24 with 4-cylinder engine. These were in keeping with the Auto Union strategy of standardised drive and suspension components and of harmonised body concepts. The new model policy enabled the brand to achieve its greatest commercial success. The W 24 became the most frequently built Wanderer car, and was available in several different versions.
