Travel long distances with peace of mind thanks to DS DRIVE ASSIST, the advanced driving aid that brings you a step closer to autonomous driving.
DS DRIVE ASSIST combines several technologies to make motorway driving easier and less stressful. Your speed is maintained, while keeping a safe distance between you and the car in front, while lane keeping assist makes sure you stay in the centre of your lane. DS DRIVE ASSIST will reduce your speed and even come to a complete stop with traffic, before setting off again automatically as traffic moves.

Never take your eyes off the road
Inspired by fighter jets, the new Head-Up display projects essential information in colour onto a transparent strip on the dash, in your field of vision while driving.
Speed, cruise control, speed limits, driver aids and navigation are all available without the need to take your eyes off the road.
A PRESTIGIOUS SIGNATURE
DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE carries all the DNA of the conventionally powered versions. With its 100% Electric powertrain, E-Tense is elegant and modern, while offering exhilarating performance.
DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE features the latest generation DS MATRIX LED VISION headlights, which adjust automatically to driving and road conditions. Switching from full beam to dipped headlights automatically, you'll never dazzle other drivers. This intelligent lighting technology uses a camera mounted in the windscreen to see the road ahead and adjust accordingly.
The DS MATRIX LED VISION projectors are made up of three LED modules for dipped beam as well as a MATRIX BEAM module for driving. This is composed of 15 identical but independent elements that illuminate and dim progressively depending on road conditions.
PROXIMITY KEYLESS ENTRY & START
