PRESIDENTIAL DS 7 CROSSBACK, A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO GET CLOSE
Presidential DS 7 CROSSBACK is honouring the tradition of the DS and SM cars used by the presidents of France's Fifth Republic. DS 7 CROSSBACK, a unique car designed especially for the inauguration of the 25th French president, made its first official appearance on 14 May 2017 with Emmanuel Macron inside.
The Ink Blue Presidential DS 7 CROSSBACK sports exclusive trim with its specially commissioned open-top roof, and its distinguishing features such as the "French Republic" signatures on its sides and flag-holder.
The black "Art Leather" interior is enhanced by "Toile de Laque" upholstery designed and produced by Atelier Maury a renowned Parisian gilder. Subtle, delicate golden accents add a decorative touch to the side mirror covers and 20-inch wheels.
Presidential DS 7 CROSSBACK is also equipped with all of the high-tech features offered in the standard model.
DS 7 CROSSBACK, INNOVATIVE SAVOIR-FAIRE FROM PARIS
DS 7 CROSSBACK is the first in second generation of DS models, a vehicle of charismatic design featuring advanced technologies, refinement in every detail and a level of comfort conveying a sense of serenity and performance. DS 7 CROSSBACK reflects the ambition of the brand, to embody, in the automotive industry, the excellence of French innovation and luxury savoir-faire.
With its powerful, sensual lines, 20-inch wheels and long, ribbed bonnet, DS 7 CROSSBACK has all the qualities of an SUV. The stylish, vertical front end fully expresses the nobility, performance and charisma of this vehicle.
The light signatures, a key feature in DS avant-garde styling, are directly inspired by the lights on DS E-TENSE, the brand’s latest concept car. The DS ACTIVE LED VISION headlights include LED modules sculpted to resemble jewels for a magical and efficient effect. At the rear, the two one-piece lights make up another distinctive feature, with a layer of luminous scales creating a unique effect of depth.
The contemporary, chic interior of DS 7 CROSSBACK meets the tastes and desires of all people with the choice of five different styles: four Inspirations with names that celebrate Paris, the birthplace of the DS brand—DS Bastille, DS Rivoli, DS Opéra, and DS Faubourg—and the sporty DS Inspiration Performance Line. Respecting a tradition of craftsmanship, each detail, each premium material featured by the Inspirations was carefully selected and crafted to create a unique ambience.
DS 7 CROSSBACK allies unique design lines with cutting-edge technologies. It features a range of class-exclusive innovations such as: DS CONNECTED PILOT, paving the way for autonomous driving, DS ACTIVE SCAN SUSPENSION, the 21st century suspension system by DS, and DS NIGHT VISION, providing exceptional visibility on the road by night.
