What Car? says...
Fashionable French design has always been popular, and combining that with the world’s demand for high-riding cars seems like a recipe for success for the DS 7. It’s even been the wheels of choice for the French president – and surely what’s good for the elected head of state is good enough to be your family's next large SUV right?
Since the model's arrival back in 2017, DS has changed the name, dropping the 'Crossback' from the end, and slimmed down the range of engine and trim levels.
So, is the DS 7 a good enough buy to trade punches with the potential rivals you might be considering, including the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Volvo XC40, as well as high-spec versions of the Mazda CX-5? That's what we'll tell you over the next few pages of this review.
We've driven the DS 7 and have rated it for performance and handling, interior quality, running costs and more. We'll also tell you which engine and trim we recommend choosing if you do decide to buy one.
