The DS 7 Crossback is a well-equipped, comfortable and practical large SUV, but its pricing and interior quality are questionable

The 7 Crossback has a choice of four engines: a 128bhp 1.5-litre diesel, a 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel and a 222bhp 1.6-litre petrol, with a 178bhp version of that petrol engine to follow soon. The 2.0 diesel isn't as slick as an Audi Q5's diesel; it transfers some vibration through to the controls at idle and gets coarse under hard acceleration. At least in town the start-stop system works very smoothly. Unlike many of its rivals – the Q5, BMW X3 and Volvo XC60, for instance – the 7 Crossback is front-wheel drive only; this means that, on a wet road, it struggles for grip off the line. However, with plenty of mid-range shove – 295lb ft at 2000rpm, to be exact – once you're rolling it's easy to overtake and get up to motorway speeds, while the eight-speed automatic gearbox can get away with holding onto a taller gear, thus contributing to the hushed ambience on the move. The 'box itself shifts between gears smoothly, kicks down promptly and responds snappily to manual shifts made via the wheel-mounted gearshift paddles. As for the 1.5 diesel, it’s strong enough around town but takes a little while to get up to motorway speeds. With that in mind, it might be worth upgrading if you regularly have a full car. This engine is a little smoother than the 2.0 but does get raucous at the top of the rev range. A six-speed manual is available and it’s a good match. The clutch is easy to use and, although the shift is a little notchy, changing gear is a largely pleasant affair. Meanwhile, the 222bhp 1.6 petrol unit is pleasantly quiet on start-up and, at low revs, manages to remain very hushed. However, compared with the low-end grunt of the diesels, its initial pick-up is laboured and it’s only when you get near the top of the rev range that it feels responsive and zingy. When you work it hard, it has quite an intrusive – but not entirely unpleasant – exhaust note, and there’s a bit of vibration through the steering wheel and pedals. The eight-speed gearbox isn’t quite so slick and smooth as it is in the diesel models, with the occasional sluggish and jerky shift. One area of disappointment for all 7 Crossbacks is the spongy brake pedal. It requires quite a lot of travel before anything happens and is irritatingly grabby, making it difficult to stop smoothly, especially at low speeds. You also get lots of road noise at 70mph, especially with 19in alloy wheels fitted, although wind noise is relatively well supressed. Most variants get conventional suspension that does a pretty good job as long as you stick with the smaller 18in wheels. Although potholes can upset it, rougher road surfaces are smoothed over nicely. Jump up to 20in wheels and you’ll find it gets upset by scruffy road surfaces. Alternatively, the 2.0 diesel, the 222bhp petrol (except Performance Line) and all Ultra Prestige models receive Active Scan suspension, which uses a camera to read the road's surface in Comfort mode. Does this work? Well, around town it is better at absorbing the kind of low-frequency bumps that would have the Renault Koleos thumping and jiggling, but compared with the best-riding SUVs (such as the Q5 and XC60 fitted with optional air suspension) it's still not as good. And it's too floaty at motorway speeds in Comfort mode, so we found it best to switch the system off and have the dampers in their mid-way setting. As a result, we wouldn't recommend buying the more expensive versions just to have this system. With all types of suspension, the 7 Crossback's soft ride comes at the expense of lateral control, so you get some noticeable body lean through quicker corners. Once settled mid-corner, it hangs on well and grips gamely, letting you feel very much in control – but it's just not as tidy or enjoyable to drive briskly as a Q5, X3 or Mazda CX-5. The Sport driving mode in Active Scan-equipped cars helps to tie things down a bit (this can be selected using a switch on the centre console), but you’re left with speaker-generated engine noise and an oversensitive accelerator pedal – both of which feel unnecessary in a family-focused SUV.

Step inside the 7 Crossback and you’re met with a stylish interior, with interestingly shaped switches, snazzy trims and dashes of shiny chrome. Upgrade from Elegance trim and you even get swathes of Alcantara or leather covering the dash. However, the most dominating feature isn’t the exotic materials or rakish centre console; it’s the 12.0in infotainment touchscreen and 12.3in customisable digital instrument display that are standard on upper trims. Yet while all this sounds impressive, the reality is not so good. You need to operate nearly everything through the touchscreen, including the interior temperature – this is not as simple as using physical buttons. And the software is laggy when you press the icons and jerky when you scroll through lists, such as when finding a radio station or phone contact. There are fixed buttons along the bottom edge that should, in theory, make swapping between menus easy, but these buttons are small and touch-sensitive, so it's hard to press them accurately on the move without staring at them intently. More successful, however, is the digital instrument display. This is clear and responsive, and you can configure it in a number of ways to show the information most useful to you, including a large sat-nav map. It’s worth noting that Elegance models get a smaller 8.0in touchscreen and conventional instruments, but we haven’t tried this yet. In terms of quality, the 7 Crossback's interior is hit and miss. It may look rather opulent, but delve deeper and you’ll find that the lower reaches of the dashboard are covered in hard, scratchy surfaces and most of the 'chrome' is actually plastic – not what buyers will be expecting in a premium SUV. If you step inside the 7 Crossback just after sitting in an Audi Q5, BMW X3 or Volvo XC60, you'll feel rather underwhelmed. At least there's plenty of adjustment for the driver's seat and steering wheel, so getting comfortable shouldn't be an issue for the driver, especially on plush trims that come with heated and even massaging seats. Visibility is good in all directions, but rear parking sensors come as standard on every version should you encounter any issues.

DS has got space and practicality right in the 7 Crossback. There's loads of room around the front for tall adults, while the rear seats offer decent leg room, so even six-footers should find it comfortable. If you avoid the panoramic roof, there's lots of head room, too. Our only complaint is that the floor in the back is quite high, forcing you into a mildly awkward seating position with your knees quite high. However, there’s no central hump in the floor for the middle passenger to straddle, making it much better for three in the back than an Audi Q5. The door bins are a reasonable size and carpeted to avoid your stuff from clattering around. In front of the gearlever is a useful cubby that can wirelessly charge a compatible smartphone. This is standard on Prestige and Ultra Prestige models, but optional on other trims. Between the front seats is a giant cubby topped with an armrest. This is both comfortable and cavernous, and makes up for the tiny glovebox. You get a variable boot floor for some added flexibility and 555 litres of luggage space with the seats up. But while that figure may appear better than many of its rivals, when we tried loading carry-on suitcases on board we could only fit in seven due to the slanting design of the tailgate. Compare that with the eight we fitted in a Volvo XC60 and nine in a Q5; you might find that you're forced to pack light for a holiday. Unlike some rivals, including the Q5, you can't add sliding or reclining rear seats to improve rear space and passenger comfort when required, and the rear seats split only 60/40, rather than the more useful 40/20/40 arrangement that the BMW X3 comes with as standard.

The 7 Crossback's starting price is not unreasonable, but for that you get the 1.5 diesel engine and a manual gearbox. If you want the more powerful 2.0 diesel or a petrol, you'll be looking at considerably more money – enough to place it uncomfortably close to some very strong premium SUV competition. It's also predicted to depreciate faster than its established premium rivals, meaning contract hire and PCP finance are actually more expensive. The copious amount of standard kit should go some way to taking the sting out of the initial purchase price, though. Rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring, keyless start, a leather steering wheel and a leather gearlever all feature on entry-level Elegance trim. And should you step up to the 2.0 diesel, the 222bhp petrol (apart from in Performance Line trim) or any Ultra Prestige model, you also get Active Scan suspension as standard. And the engines are clean and frugal by class standards. Company car buyers will want to consider the lower-powered diesel engine first, because its CO2 emissions of 107g/km are the range best and a good effort in the wider context of the class. The 2.0 diesel is also efficient next to similarly sized rivals. In our experience, the 222bhp petrol engine is capable of better fuel economy than similarly sized unleaded rivals and has lower CO2 emissions. Euro NCAP awared the 7 Crossback its maximum of five stars and, relative to most rivals, it scores well in the four individual categories. However, if you want the safest SUV in this class, then look at the Volvo XC60 instead; that car has one of the best adult occupancy scores of any car on sale. In terms of active safety aids, all 7 Crossbacks come with automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning, while blindspot detection, lane-keep assist and drive attention alert are standard on Prestige and Ultra Prestige models. These are optional on Elegance and Performance Line models.
