DS 7 CROSSBACK is first of the second-generation models from DS Automobiles. This sophisticated SUV asserts itself with a feature at the front that is instantly recognisable: DS WINGS. From the side, its sculpted shapes and the intricate aesthetics of its alloy wheels emphasise its dynamism. Fashioned like a piece of jewellery, DS ACTIVE LED VISION is the exterior design’s finishing touch.
Contemporary and chic, DS 7 CROSSBACK’s interior is an expression of the expertise our designers, engineers and craftsmen have put into it. Each material and every detail bears testament to the inspiration of Haute Couture.
The cockpit stands out thanks to its unique features: the ‘Clous de Paris’ Guilloché patterned accents, controls with crystal inserts, the B.R.M R180 watch and even ‘pearl-edged’ stitching. Two 12” screens are the perfect counterpoint.
12" central touchscreen
The 12″ central touchscreen lets you operate various functions with a gentle ‘virtual’ push or by using a chrome controller with crystal inserts*.
It gives you access to features including comfort, media, connectivity and Mirror Screen**.

“Each material and every detail bear testament to the inspiration of high fashion.” Thierry Metroz, design director DS Automobiles
In the tradition of quality craftsmanship, each detail and material used with DS Inspirations (real wood, Alcantara, grained and Nappa leathers, even the guilloché pattern favoured by watchmakers) is carefully chosen and worked with.
On board DS 7 CROSSBACK passengers enjoy unprecedented space, notably in the rear seats where the seat back can be reclined from 23° to 32°. The seats are created from high density mousse for maximum comfort and support. In the front they can be heated, ventilated and have a massaging function (five modes are available via the central touchscreen).
Engines and gearboxes
Enjoy a truly dynamic experience thanks to DS 7 CROSSBACK’s choice of five internal combustion engines. Powerful and efficient, our engines are strictly in line with latest emissions standards (Euro 6.2) and stand out thanks to their remarkable torque. They’re also smoother and more responsive with our new eight-speed automatic gearbox (EAT8).
Our technologies follow the example of the 200-bar injection pressure seen on the THP engines while Stop&Start guarantees best-in-class fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
E-TENSE 4x4: HYBRID BY DS
Available on DS 7 CROSSBACK from Spring 2019, the powerful E-TENSE plug-in hybrid signifies performance and efficiency with 300hp, four-wheel drive and 60km range in zero emissions mode. Our engineers have created a uniquely ingenious architecture so there are no sacrifices in cockpit or boot space.
DS CONNECTED PILOT
DS CONNECTED PILOT helps to drive while enabling you to retake control of the car at any point. This is a step closer to autonomous driving. The innovative system regulates the speed and distance in relation to the vehicle in front. It also positions DS 7 CROSSBACK precisely in its lane by controlling the steering. It governs speed and direction guaranteeing that you feel safe and relaxed at the wheel.
DS PARK PILOT
This new driver aid enables DS 7 CROSSBACK to park itself parallel to the kerb or in a bay at an angle without the driver touching the steering wheel or pedals. DS PARK PILOT detects parking spaces that DS 7 CROSSBACK will fit simply by driving past at speeds up to 30km/h.
DS DRIVER ATTENTION MONITORING
Our engineers have come up with a system to detect when your attention wanders. At the first signs of tiredness or distraction, DS DRIVER ATTENTION MONITORING sounds a warning and an alert flashes up on the screen. At day or at night.
DS ACTIVE LED VISION
First shown on our DS E-TENSE concept car, DS ACTIVE LED VISION is eye-catching and functional. It features a main LED projector and three swivelling LED modules. For optimum visibility, these pivot horizontally and vertically depending on steering wheel angle, road speed and weather conditions.
