The DS7 Crossback appeared on the market two years later and was updated in 2022.
With the facelifted version of the DS7 Crossback, Citroen tried to prove that it learned how to create a premium-segment vehicle. Moreover, it had to offer more and exceed expectations to be taken seriously in a market dominated by German and British brands.
The DS7 Crossback facelift was brought on the market by the French carmaker in the summer of 2022. Its exterior underwent an aesthetic upgrade, and the car received a new set of LED headlights fitted with PIXEL LED 3.0 technology. In addition, the carmaker installed 84 light-emitting diodes arranged in three rows in each headlamp. Moreover, the veil-type DRLs on the front bumper clearly provide a unique look on the market. Depending on the trim level, the front fascia was completely black, including the DS logo that took center stage on the grill.
Inside, the cabin was already praised for the materials used. However, users claimed there was room for improvement, so DS tried again to meet or exceed their expectations. Thus, the extensive use of alcantara and leather led to a much nicer interior than before. In addition, the seats sported various patterns, depending on the customer's choices and the car's trim level.
But the French carmaker understood that premium-segment car buyers will not take a beautiful vehicle with a weak engine wouldseriously. That forced DS to introduce two new plug-in hybrid powertrains that provided up to 360 PS (355 HP) for the top-of-the-range, all-wheel drive version.
