DS7 CROSSBACK Reviews
The DS 7 Crossback is a premium segment SUV from the French automaker DS Automobiles. The vehicle was presented for the first time on the 28th February 2017, and its public premiere at the 87th Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. The SUV, like another PSA SUV cars, is based on the EMP2 platform.
Up front, there’s a large grille with a tightly weaved crisscross mesh accented by chrome strips on the sides and bottom. That bottom chrome strip runs almost the full width of the front fascia on a little shelf of sorts that creates the upper foundation for the lower air dam and the recessed corners that house the fog lights. Small, curved LED strips are embedded in the outer edges of the front fascia and serve as daytime running lights. Up above, the headlights take on a unique shape with a flat outer edge. The hood itself is somewhat beefy with raised outside edges, and mild body lines in the center to accompany them.
Moving over to the side profile, we see more of that French ingenuity and brilliant design that’s both pleasing to look at and aggressive enough to draw interest. A single, sharp body line runs from the front fenders to the outermost point of the rear taillight housing, fading smooth between the front and rear doors
Down below, a slightly concave area adds more character above the plastic cladding that makes up the side skirt. Above the beltline, the DS 7 is well defined with bold chrome trim surrounding the side glass and coming to a sharp point on the upper rear quarter. Low-sitting roof racks sit on the roof and are also finished in chrome to match the taillight housings, front trim, and window garnishing.
Around back, it’s more of the same in a DS kind of way. The hatch itself is somewhat bubble and has jagged edges. The rear overhang in complemented by side panels that give the rear glass a look of depth toward to the top and sides. Down below, the taillights feature a unique and interesting matrix layout and are outlined in chrome.
here are chrome extensions on the rear quarters, just to the outside of the rear hatch seams. However, these are just for looks and don’t appear to house any actual lights. Down below a large reflector resides in each corner of the fascia, while that black cladding extends upward toward to the top of the rear fascia and serves as home for the integrated exhaust outlets and a mild-looking splitter-like element that adds just a little more style to the rear end.
