The A40 Somerset was an automobile sold by the Austin Motor Company from 1952 through 1954. It replaced the A40 Devon and was quite similar to that body-on-frame car, including using the same 1.2 L straight-4 pushrod engine. The engine was updated to produce 42 hp (31 kW), however.

The Somerset featured an updated "Transatlantic" body style designed for export and resembled the larger A70 Hereford. The Somerset was initially only a 4-door saloon, though a 3-passenger 2-door convertible model was also sold. Over 173,000 were sold before the Somerset was replaced by the A40 Cambridge in 1954.
