When advanced technology is on your side

Designed for your comfort, DS 9 features the latest technology.

DS PARK PILOT

Your DS 9 is in charge

With DS PARK PILOT, parking becomes remarkably easy.

This intelligent system can detect a parking space big enough for DS 9 simply by driving past at up to 30km/h. With this assistance technology the car parks on its own, in bays or parallel, without the driver touching the steering wheel or pedals.

DS ACTIVE SCAN SUSPENSION

Bumps in the road scanned instantly

This intelligent suspension system relies on a camera located at the top of the windscreen as well as multiple sensors that constantly look for imperfections in the road. They transmit this data in milliseconds to a computer that operates each wheel independently. Depending on the information it receives this continuously makes the suspension harder or softer, guaranteeing optimal comfort.

DS ACTIVE LED VISION

Your car watches over you

With its main LED projector headlamp and three rotating modules, DS ACTIVE LED VISION offers several modes of lighting specific to each driving situation. The modules work together to instantly adjust the angle, intensity and range of the light beam depending on driving conditions (weather and light levels). It doesn’t matter if you are driving in town, the country or on the motorway, the lighting will adapt to guarantee vision in high definition.

DS NIGHT VISION

See what can't be seen in the dark

At night, with its infrared camera hidden in the front grille, your DS 9 scans the road in real time. The system can detect pedestrians and animals up to 100m away so you can see hazards and react quickly.

DS DRIVER ATTENTION MONITORING

Your car watches over you

Day and night, a system of sensors and a camera look for signs of tiredness or distraction in the driver as well as monitoring the car’s trajectory. If they detect sleepiness or a lack of attention an audible alert sounds in the cockpit and is displayed on the central screen.

DS DRIVE ASSIST

A taste of autonomous driving

We’ve designed DS DRIVE ASSIST to help the driver while enabling them to retake control of the car at any time. This system adjusts the speed and distance relative to the vehicle in front and positions DS 9 precisely in its lane by controlling the steering if the driver wants. It oversees speed and steering, guaranteeing safety and peace of mind at the wheel.
The system also controls stopping (within a 3-second limit) and restarting when traffic gets heavy.
