Why Lease A DS 7 Crossback?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
It’s not available as a 7-seater, but in most other respects, the DS 7 is a very practical car. Boot capacity sits at 555 litres regardless of what engine you pick – there’s no practicality sacrifice to be made if you plump for the plug-in hybrid. Fold the seats down and you get a massive 1752 litres to play with, while the rear seats are spacious too, so adult passengers in the back won’t be complaining on longer journeys. The only thing to be aware of is that the optional panoramic sunroof eats into headroom a bit.
If running costs are a priority, you’ll want to make a beeline for the plug-in hybrid DS 7 Crossback, which is known as the E-Tense. There are actually 2, but the more powerful E-Tense 300 4-wheel-drive model feels like overkill. The E-Tense 225, with its up-to-177mpg fuel economy, 36-41g/km CO2 emissions and 33-34 miles of pure-electric range, should be more than sufficient for most needs.
The BlueHDi diesel is pretty efficient as well, promising around 50mpg economy for those who regularly do long journeys and can’t charge up a plug-in hybrid at home due to a lack of off-street parking. Finally there are the PureTech petrols, which aren’t inefficient as petrol engines go, but inevitably can’t match the figures of the diesel or the hybrid.
DS 7 CrossbackThe DS 7 Crossback comes in a single bodystyle: a large, high-riding, 5-door SUV with a large boot and plenty of room for adult occupants front and rear.
High Performance ModelsAlthough DS offered a powerful Performance version of its smaller DS 3 hatchback, so far there’s no sign of something similar for the DS 7 Crossback. The Performance Line trim level doesn’t get any more powerful engines than the rest of the range.
The DS 7 Crossback Vs Competitors
As it’s a relatively new brand, consumers may be unsure about the reliability of DS, but many of the components in the DS 7 and its other models are shared with cars from Peugeot, Citroen and Vauxhall, so quality is first-rate.
You can fit 555 litres of luggage in the DS7 Crossback’s boot with all seats in place. That expands to 1752 litres if you fold the seats down. Unlike some competitors, the DS 7 doesn’t lose boot space if you choose the plug-in hybrid or 4-wheel-drive version.
Currently the DS 7 Crossback range starts with the Performance Line, followed by the Performance Line+, Rivoli and Opera. There’s also a limited-edition range-topping version developed in collaboration with, and named after, the Louvre art gallery in Paris.
Rear parking sensors are standard across the range; front sensors and a reversing camera are optional on the Performance Line and standard on all the other trim levels.
Despite its stylish and luxurious image, the DS7 Crossback is just as versatile and practical as other, less upmarket family SUVs, with a large boot, easily folded seats, and plenty of room for occupants front and rear to store items and stretch out.
