Initial customers of the new DS 7 CROSSBACK will be those that place orders for the exclusive Limited Edition La Première model – a premium-specified, sumptuously-equipped distinctive SUV vehicle that features an impressive combination of advanced technology features.
La Première includes features of charismatic design; Elegant proportions, DS ACTIVE LED VISION, Hypnotic 3D rear lights and two 12-inch instrumentation screens with an innovative interface. French luxury know-how is clearly evident with the ‘Art Rubis’ leather upholstery interior trim – unique to La Première – with an obsession for detail and magnified interior roominess.
This innovative approach goes hand-in-hand with the cutting-edge features of DS 7 CROSSBACK La Première with the latest technologies that will subsequently be available across the range.
DS CONNECTED PILOT -paving the way for autonomous driving through Active Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist, DS NIGHT VISION – considerably improving visibility for driving at night, and DS ACTIVE SCAN SUSPENSION – the 21st century DS suspension system, which uses a camera to anticipate bumps and undulations in the road for optimising ride comfort.
DS 7 CROSSBACK La Première stands out for its chic, exclusive styling: an elegant, charismatic allure with a choice of colours; Cumulus Grey metallic, Pearl White or Perla Nera Black pearlescent contrasting with a unique Nappa leather upholstery in a shade called Art Rubis, for a deep, welcoming environment.
The refined watchstrap leather design of the seats is accentuated by pearl top-stitching, and the Nappa leather features a patina effect. Further, the exclusive B.R.M R180 timepiece displays the colours of the interior environment, while the dashboard and protective floor mats carry La Première identity.
Reflecting an obsession for detail, touches of the characteristic Art Rubis shade can be seen on the vehicle’s exterior, on the DS monogram badging at the front, the badges on the side and even on the sculpted 20-inch ‘Paris’ gloss black Onyx diamond-cut alloy wheels.
