DS 7 Crossback SUV (2017 - )

The DS 7 Crossback is a medium-size SUV from aspiring French premium brand DS Automobiles, and it offers a stylish interior, plenty of sophisticated equipment and quiet cruising. Versions include a petrol plug-in hybrid, which is badged the DS 7 E-Tense. The DS 7 Crossback is a quietly appealing choice in the premium SUV market, and can be had with unusual technology, including road-reading suspension, a night vision camera and headlights that adapt to suit the conditions. It’s also very well finished. The diesels are a bit noisy and the E-Tense petrol plug-in hybrid option is the one to go for. Read what the DS7 Crossback is like to live with in our long-term review.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Given that DS Automobiles is a far from established competitor to Audi, BMW, Land Rover and Mercedes, the prices for the DS 7 look unlikely to persuade an owner of a rival to jump ship on the basis of value. It costs a bit less than its premium rivals, but the gap isn’t huge, and all the rivals include four-wheel drive in their prices, while the DS (other than the hybrid) only has front-wheel drive. The car’s efficiency figures are about par for the course and - perhaps surprisingly – so are resale values, so the DS 7 shouldn’t cost you any more to run long-term than its rivals will.

The E-Tense hybrid version, meanwhile, costs a significant chunk more than the petrol and diesels but scores free VED and significant tax savings for company drivers looking to reduce their Benefit In Kind costs. Private owners who can keep within the all-electric range could also save in fuel but, in common with most plug-in hybrids, that alone won’t recoup the higher purchase price.
