Join What Car? for an exclusive preview of the new DS 7 Crossback SUV on Thursday 4 May 2017 in Feltham, Middlesex.

DS is a very new name to the car industry, having been launched as CitroΓ«n's premium sister brand two years ago. Until now, though, it has only sold cars that were previously badged as CitroΓ«ns, so this mid-sized SUV will be the first true DS car.

Due to go on sale in early 2018, the 7 Crossback is pitched as a rival to SUVs such as the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC and Range Rover Evoque.

Because DS is targeting the premium end of the large SUV market, a starting price of around Β£30,000 is likely. At that price, the 7 Crossback will still significantly undercut all of its aforementioned rivals.

DS promises a luxurious interior and generous standard kit for the 7 Crossback. On the exterior, it has a large, stylish front grille, wide air intakes and LED lights, all of which help to give the car an aggressive, sporty look, while it's full of tech inside, with a 12.0in infotainment touchscreen and a customisable digital instrument display. It should be practical, too, with seats for five with the promise of good head and leg room and a large boot.

At the event, you'll get a close-up look of the car and a Q&A opportunity with the DS team, before being interviewed for the magazine.

DS is aiming to appeal to people looking for a new family SUV, aspirational buyers and those looking to upgrade from an entry-level luxury car. If that describes you, come along and see what this leftfield choice can do for you.
