There are five trim levels to pick from, dependent on your needs, with the top specs named after famous Parisian landmarks to continue the theming, including the Rivoli and the Opera and Opera Premiere.
But if you’re not after all the bells and whistles, the not-quite-entry-level Performance Line+ has a decent amount of standard kit, including keyless entry and start, 12in instrument cluster and infotainment display, front parking sensors, reversing camera and heated front seats.
However – the Rivoli trim is really quite nice.
It includes a Basalt Black leather interior, massaging front seats and a central clock from luxury French watch manufacturer B.R.M Chronographs, while the Opera trim adds ventilated front seats, electric tailgate and panoramic sunroof, wireless charging and adaptive cruise control.
Fashionable French design has never fallen out of style, and DS have managed to tap into a niche that hadn’t quite been filled by the usual French manufacturers (Renault, Citroen, Peugeot) before.
If you want French style in a high-riding car, then you can’t go half wrong with a DS 7 lease.
It’s even been the French president’s choice of car before. And what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, after all.
