The DS 7 CROSSBACK instantly evokes sophistication through its fine materials such as leather, and the attention that has been paid to every detail.
Another plus factor of the DS 7 CrossBack is expressed most clearly via the engines, in particular the new PureTech 225 petrol engine: designed in the Paris region, developed in Belchamp and manufactured in Douvrin, it is equipped with advanced technological features (variable valve intake drive, variable intake and exhaust valve timing, turbo twinscroll, 200bar fuel injection pressure, Stop&Start system, Petrol Particle Filter) to ensure best-in-class fuel economy. With the new PureTech 225 petrol engine. the DS 7 CrossBack offers power of 225hp and reduced fuel consumption by 6% (compared to the previous THP 210).
The new EAT8 (Efficient Automatic Transmission 8-speed) gearbox, which goes hand in hand with the PureTech 225 petrol engine also reduces fuel consumption through optimized efficiency, an ECO mode combining ‘free wheeling’ (returns the engine to idle and disengages the gearbox with each lift of the foot off of the accelerator for speeds between 12mph and 80mph with adapted gearshift patterns).
On the four-cylinder engine, the continuously variable valve lift system was widely adopted and multiple injection management was developed (Valvetronic). While for a reduced friction, a higher quality of oil and cylinder surface wall treatment are applied; it works with a redesigned turbo-compressor (electric waste gate, improved turbine and compressor yield).
The Puretech engine also allows for a significant reduction in pollutant emissions regardless of real-use conditions, thanks to introduction of the Petrol Particle Filter, greater thermal resistance of materials, optimised exhaust temperature management and improved catalyst function).
Already available in the range are two efficient diesel engines, the BlueHDi 130 with a manual gearbox and the BlueHDi 180 with an automatic gearbox (300Nm of torque at 1,750rpm and 400Nm of torque at 2,000rpm).
In a nutshell, the new engine ensures enhanced driving pleasure and on-road safety.
