DS 7 Crossback E-Tense 300 , the model measures 188.6 inches (4,790 mm) long thanks to a wheelbase that has been extended by 7.9 inches (200 mm).

Driven: 2020 DS 7 Crossback Is The SUV You Never Knew You Wanted The changes continue in the cabin as the DS 7 Crossback has been equipped with two individual rear seats that feature power adjustment and are separated by a full-length center console. Speaking of the latter, it features a wireless smartphone charger as well as controls for the heated and ventilated rear seats. Other notable highlights include Basalt Black leather, Alcantara upholstery and gloss black accents. We can also see a rear seat entertainment system and RF badging. One thing that remains the same is the plug-in hybrid powertrain, which consists of a PureTech engine, two electric motors, and a 13.2 kWh battery pack. It enables the all-wheel drive crossover to produce a combined output of 296 hp (221 kW / 300 PS) and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque. Of course, the armoring and extended length likely have a huge impact on its performance. DS is staying tight-lipped about that, but the standard model can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 5.9 seconds and travel up to 36 miles (58 km) on electricity alone. The DS 7 Crossback Élysée made its entrance today as the vehicle was used during ceremonies commemorating the Armistice of 11 November 1918, which ended World War I. PHOTO GALLERY
