Grand Motors Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor of DS automobiles in the country will be unveiling the next generation of the DS 3 Crossback tomorrow at its showroom in Beribi Industrial Area.

The DS 3 Crossback is the first to feature the latest upgrade of PureTech with a 155hp petrol engine mated to the EAT8 (Efficient Automatic 8 speeds Transmission) producing a powertrain performance. The Pure Tech 130 petrol engine recently received the ‘Engine of the Year’ accolade for the fourth consecutive year.

Inside the comfort of the DS 3 Crossback is the innovative 10’3” entertainment screen in HD format with smartphone mirroring and connected navigation. Meanwhile, a transparent heads up display which projects key driving information in colour can be found on the windscreen just above the steering wheel.

Safety is also a top priority. The DS 3 Crossback has a range of advanced safety features including the Active City Brake, a new generation of emergency braking that can identify cyclists and pedestrians, even at night.

The architecture of DS 3 Crossback reflects the same protective approach, as illustrated by the height of the waist line, the thickness of the door panels and – above all – the presence of eight airbags.

In terms of safety, the compact SUV has set a new standard in its class with the range of advanced safety features, going beyond the requirements for 5-star in the Euro NCAP protocol.

The DS 3 Crossback introduces a new generation of full LED lighting with Matrix Beam technology allowing the light beam to adjust automatically to provide optimal lighting and can drive outside built-up areas on full headlights without dazzling other road users.
