DS 7 Crossback SUV - Practicality & boot space
The DS 7 Crossback has plentiful interior space and a big boot
SUVs are popular partly thanks to their relaxing interiors, and passengers should have no trouble stretching out inside the DS 7.
DS 7 Crossback interior space & storage
As you’d hope, there’s plenty of space, with room for adults in the front and a decent amount in the back, too. Thanks to a flat floor, three people can just about squeeze in the second row with enough room for the middle passenger’s feet. The floor is a bit shallow, though, so tall passengers might find their knees slightly elevated.
Headroom certainly shouldn’t be an issue, although taller owners might want to avoid the panoramic sunroof, as this does lower the roofline quite a bit.
We doubt many will complain about the boot either. It measures 555 litres behind the rear seats and a generous 1,752 litres when they're folded away. It’s quite a bit more than the 505 litres of the X1 or the 1,234-litre maximum space in the Jaguar E-Pace. Unlike most plug-in hybrids, the E-Tense also manages to keep the same boot volume as the petrol and diesel.
Every DS 7 is capable when it comes to towing, with the PureTech 130 petrol managing up to 1,290kg. The BlueHDi 130 is rated to tow a 1,430kg braked trailer, 120kg less than the top petrol engines. The E-Tense 225 and E-Tense 300 models manage 1,250 and 1,200kg respectively. This should be plenty to tow a trailer or medium-sized caravan and a fitted tow bar is also available as an official accessory. Some rivals can tow quite a bit more, however, with top versions of the Audi Q3 and Volvo XC40 able to lug around 2,000kg.
