DS has revealed new options for customers of its range-topping DS 7 Crossback SUV, including new trims and fancy tech packs.
The Ultra Prestige model now comes with a brown Nappa leather interior with a watchstrap design as a no-cost option to add to the black getup that was available before. If you’d like your Prestige model decked out in chocolatey leather it’ll set you back a a mere £2,750.
The DS range is also available with a new Premium Safety pack that’s made up of active blind spot detection, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, attention alert, connected pilot and DS’s ConnectedCam feature.
DS ConnectedCam is a camera system built into the rear-view mirror and is independent of the on-board infotainment system. It uses full HD GPS technology and has a built-in memory card of 16 GB to store photos. A wifi connection allows data to be transferred from the camera to a phone.
With the camera fitted you can take a photo of the area outside of the car, share any photos or videos on social media or by email and you’ll even have access to a video recording in the event of an accident. The camera will automatically record 30 seconds before and one minute after an accident.
The Premium Safety Pack is available on Performance Line models for £1,450, Prestige models for £750 and £400 on the Ultra Prestige model for £400, thanks to the ConnectedCam and a number of other features already being added as standard.
Other standalone options will now be available on all DS 7s – you can spec a remote controlled heater for £600, extended dual-zone auto air conditioning for £200, remote boot access and keyless go for £850 and an electrically operated panoramic sunroof with roof bars for £1,200. The latter two features are available as standard on the swanky Ultra Prestige-spec car.
