The Arden was a British automobile manufactured from 1912 to 1916 in Balsall Heath, Coventry.

Starting out as a light and somewhat crude cyclecar, by the time production finished four years later, it had grown into a well-made four-cylinder car, featuring full four-seater coachwork.

The first model in 1912 was a 8 hp V-twin, air cooled, 898 cc JAP engined cyclecar with a wooden chassis. This continued in production until 1915.

This was suplemented in 1914 by the 10 hp, with either a water cooled, Alpha 1104 cc two cylinder or 1094 cc four cylinder engine.

A larger car, the 11.9 hp with 1701 cc engine was made in 1916 only.

One Arden, a 1913 Alpha two cylinder engined two seat model, is known to survive.
