Introduction

What Car? says...

We like fashionable French design, and SUVs are all the rage at the moment, so combining the two in the DS 7 Crossback should make it the darling of the large SUV sector.

The car market is rather different to the fashion world, though – especially with those German premium brands winning over so many buyers. So the DS 7 Crossback's mission is to convince us it's as good as anything Audi, BMW and Mercedes can build. 

So is the DS 7 Crossback good enough to succeed against the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC, as well high-end versions of the Mazda CX-5? That's what this review will tell you.

We'll let you know how we rate in terms of performance, handling, interior quality, boot space and other important factors. We'll also reveal our favourite engine and trim combination.

When you've made up your mind which make and model is right for you, we can help you get it for the best price if you search our free What Car? New Car Buying pages. They feature lots of new large SUV deals.
