FRANCE'S top selling premium SUV, the DS 7 Crossback, is now available with a spy-in-the-cab, capable of recording a video if the car is involved in an accident.

The camera system is built into the base of the interior rear-view mirror and is independent of the on-board infotainment system. It uses full high definition GPS technology and has a built-in memory card to store photos and video. A Wi-Fi connection allows data to be transferred from the camera to a smartphone.

The system, which works using an ON/OFF button and a button to start recording, allows the driver to take a photo of the area outside the vehicle and gives access to video recording in the event of an accident, recordng for 30 seconds before the event and a minute afterwards.

Called ConnectedCAM, the gadget is now standard on the flagship DS 7 Crossback Ultra Prestige model and has been added to the optional premium safety pack which costs from £400 to £1,450 depending on the base vehicle's trim level.

The addition is one of a number of new features being made available to DS 7 Crossback buyers, including a new brown Nappa leather trim with what DS calls a "watchstrap" design. The striking new interior colourway is available as a no-cost option on the Ultra Prestige model and as a £2,750 option on the Prestige variant.

The French manufacturer has also de-packaged a number of items and made them available as stand-alone options, including a heater which can be controlled remotely and from a smartphone £600), upgraded automatic air-conditioning (£200), remote tailgate locking and keyless entry and start (from £400 to £850 depending on model) and an electric panoramic sunroof (£1,200).
