The interior layout, fit and finish
As you'd expect with a luxury car, the DS 9 gets electric seat adjustment as standard and has adjustable lumbar support. If you opt for the fancier Rivoli+ trim, the front seats aren't just heated, they also have a ventilation function to stop you getting sweaty on long trips.
Forwards visibility is respectable, and the DS 9 has a strip running down its bonnet which, as well as being a styling cue, acts as a guide to how much car is ahead of you. Rear visibility is compromised by thick pillars, but a reversing camera is fitted to every model, and the range-topping trim gets a 360-degree bird's eye view camera.
