John Grose hosted an exclusive viewing of the newest addition to the prestigious DS Automobiles brand – the DS 7 Crossback sport utility vehicle.

The preview event was held at Oaksmere Hotel in Eye, which provied an idea backdrop for this VIP event.

Guests were invited to see the only pre-production model DS7 Crossback in the country, viewing its stylish exterior in resplendent Byzantin gold paint.

To fully experience DS 7 Crossback’s luxurious interior and advanced technologies, not all completed on the pre-production model, the event was supported by a state-of-the-art virtual reality chair. It allowed users to not only see the finished model from the inside, but to interact with it by opening the doors and the boot, changing the colours and watching the vehicle drive – all through the virtual-reality headset.
