Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
The DS 7 Crossback's starting price is not unreasonable, but the cheapest model will cost more than the cheapest Audi Q3. For that, you’ll get either the petrol or diesel engine. To get the plug-in hybrid, you'll have to spend nearly 20% more, which is more than the Audi Q3 PHEV and BMW X1.
The Q3 TFSI e is front-wheel drive only, though. The DS 7 Crossback is also predicted to depreciate faster than its established premium rivals, making contract hire and PCP finance more expensive.
