Used on up-market Citroens in the 1950s, the DS nameplate was re-introduced by the brand in 2010, before being announced by the company’s PSA parent group as a stand-alone brand in 2014.
For most of the next four years, DS models were little more than re-badged Citroens. In early 2018, though, the company launched its first purpose-designed contender, the DS 7 Crossback, a 7-seat midsize premium SUV, following it a year later with the smaller DS 3 Crossback crossover. In 2020, the DS 9 luxury saloon joined the range too.
The DS3 Crossback aims to bring a trendy, more upmarket feel to the supermini -sized crossover market. The design of this car certainly offers a more interesting take on small SUV design & is available in full-electric form badged as the DS 3 Crossback E-TENSE. The E-TENSE can offer 186 miles of WLTP-rated driving range when its battery is fully charged, a process that can be completed from an 11kW wall box in around 5 hours.
The larger DS 7 Crossback offers an interesting alternative to mid-sized premium SUVs like the Audi Q5 & the BMW X3. Unlike those cars, it's available in 7-seat form. You can choose between conventional petrol or diesel power, Plug-in hybrid and PHEV form. Across the range, there’s clever innovation with suspension & headlight technology, plus a uniquely sumptuous, tactile interior.
