DS7 Crossback Gains New 225PS Petrol Engine In The UK

Buyers on the lookout for the DS7 Crossback now have a new engine to select in the United Kingdom: a four-cylinder petrol unit making 225PS (222hp / 166kW) and 300Nm (221lb-ft) of torque.

It features several advanced technological features including a petrol particle filter, a twinscroll turbo, exhaust valve timing, variable intake, variable valve intake drive, 200bar fuel injection pressure and stop&start system.

When combined, these features help it “ensure best-in-class fuel economy”, according to the French automaker, which says that this version of the DS7 Crossback returns 48.7 UK mpg (5.8 l/100 km / 40.55 US mpg). It represents a reduced fuel consumption of 6 percent, compared to the THP 210 mill, with the new engine meeting the Euro 6.2 emission standards. DS chose the eight-speed automatic gearbox for the unit.

The rest of the lineup includes the BlueHDi 130PS (128hp / 95kW) and 180PS (177hp / 132kW) diesels, along with the plug-in hybrid version that combines the PureTech 200PS (197hp / 147kW) petrol engine and two 80kW (109PS / 107hp) electric motors. The latter has an MSRP of £50,000 ($66,356).
