In thirty years, the diesel was able to cannibalize the car park and French. But three years ago came the “dieselgate” which, even today, is an expensive Volkswagen. Motorists have realised that this fuel emit evil particles and some nasty toxic gases. An observation that has triggered a renewed interest for the good old gasoline engine.

The commands “Crystal” and the guilloché “Clous de Paris” of certain elements give a unique atmosphere. DS.

Adjustment of the suspension in real time

that has not escaped DS, the young luxury brand of the PSA group, whose engine is the most powerful of its DS 7 Crossback is a gasoline engine of 225 horsepower. It has only four cylinders but turbocharged, they are worth six or eight. This is called “downsizing”, reducing the capacity in good French. This artifice reduces consumption and CO2 emission. Well powered, the DS-7 is a luxuriously equipped. Assistance systems driving the most recent abound. There is aid to maintain in the queue and the active regulator that give a taste of driving autonomously on the highway. Also present at the call, a lighting “intelligent” as well as an infrared camera, which senses the night pedestrians and animals. Another camera monitors the road. It is connected to a calculator which adjusts the suspension in real time according to the condition of the road. A technological refinement of little current in automotive production, even among those beyond the Rhine.

Leather “bracelet-watch”

But the seduction operates before everything inside. A beautiful watch B. R. M. appears after you have rotated to the top of the dashboard to the road, while two large digital screens illuminate softly the cabin. The commands “Crystal” and the guilloché “Clous de Paris” of certain elements give a unique atmosphere. The leather “watchband” seats, reminiscent of those of the legendary SM-1970s, brings an extra touch of elegance. At the wheel, the suspension further development of the DS 7 Crossback provides a great comfort. The seats and backrests maintain your body perfectly. Anything to take down hundreds of kilometres without apprehension. The silence in the cockpit may not be disturbed by the sound emitted by the great sound system the Focal. Or by the whistling sound of the turbine in a panic produced by the motor when overtaking a little strong.
