Innovation & Self-driving
An elegant, stylish center console with its gearbox controls, toggle switches and electric handbrake are impressive in the DS 3 Crossback, but the design is also practical thanks to a smartphone charging pad, an array of storage compartments, and a broad sliding armrest. There is also find a digital instrument cluster, large infotainment screen and head-up display.
A 10.3-inch center display screen complements a fully-digital instrument cluster. New pedestrian detection software works in daylight or at night to give the driver two warnings before automatically applying the brakes. The driver can heed or dismiss the warnings.
