DS 3 CROSSACK - Original Innovations

28 September 2018


DS SMART ACCESS allows you to unlock and start your DS 3 CROSSBACK using th MyDS app.

THe technology uses Bluetooth protocol, and the system remains operational even without a GSM network, making it unique on the market. Since cars are often shared, this innovation also lets the owner make the vehicle available to up to five users at the same time without giving them the key. For each user, the owner can authorise access and activate functions permanently or for a limited time.

DS MATRIX LED VISION: permanent full beam

DS Matrix LED Vision lighting comprises of 3 LED modules for low beam, and a Matrix Beam module for high beam. The beam emitted by each Matrix Beam module is divided into 15 independent segments which switch on and off gradually, segment by segment, based on the driving conditions detected by the camera above the windscreen. . As a result, drivers of DS 3 CROSSBACK cars can keep their main beams on without dazzling other road users.

Flush-fitting door handles

The folding flush-fitting door handles are both elegant and modern. Originally premiered on the DS X E-Tense Dream-Car, this exclusive technology is new to this sector. The principle is simple: the door handles are available to users when required. The rest of the time, they fold into the vehicle sides. With Proximity Keyless Entry and Start, the magic takes place as the key holder approaches the car, within a radius of 1.5m. The car unlocks and the four handles deploy automatically so the driver and passengers simply get in and drive away. The door handles then retract and the vehicle locks as you walk away.

FOCAL Electra®

A long-established partner of DS Automobiles, French company FOCAL worked with DS engineers and technicians to develop a Hi-Fi system: ELECTRA®. The result is a high-end signature with 12 loud speakers ideally positioned around the DS 3 CROSSBACK cabin for an overall power of 515 watts. The tweeters are in the shark fins, and the result is an exceptional immersive experience. The sound is well balanced, crisp, true to life for live, physical sound and real spatialisation of the sound stage, like an auditorium.


With DS PARK PILOT, drivers of DS 3 CROSSBACK can park automatically, without using the steering wheel and the pedals. This system is able to check whether a parking space is big enough for DS 3 CROSSBACK simply by driving past
at a speed of up to 30kmph/18.5mph.

Using the touch screen, the driver selects reverse or angle parking. The final step? Simply press the Park button and wait for the magic to happen!


First seen on DS 7 CROSSBACK, DS DRIVE ASSIST is now available on DS 3 CROSSBACK.

This function regulates vehicle speed in relation to the vehicle in front and acts on the steering to precisely position DS 3 CROSSBACK in its lane based on the driver’s choices and habits. Available at speeds of up to 180kmph/112mph (depending on national legislation), the system controls the vehicle’s speed and path. This system is particularly useful in traffic jams or on the motorway. Contributing to a more relaxed driving experience.
