hard Lines for its futuristic exterior design:
The LED optical systems play a crucial role in its design.
the design of The DS E-Tense is based on an aggressive plant in which the steps of the wheel, both the front and the rear, have a major role and in which we can not overlook details such as the nice set of optics-grille, the side gills, the aletines or the attractive drop ceiling, finished off by a long optical tail and a large diffuser.
