DS7 Automatic with only 6 gears


I purchased a DS7 Opera 1.6t (165hp) petrol with 6 gears automatic transmission. On the time of the purchase (being my first car) I did not know any details about other DS7 models, and how it progressed over the years, I even found only after a few months that Opera means the top trim…

But one thing looked strange to me when I actually started to search why the fuel consumption is so big on my model compared to any other on the internet, and I did not find any article or review from an DS7 owner that has the same automatic transmission with 6 gears (found only with 8 gears) and with such fuel consumption…

My results are:
14l/100km in city area during summer (25-35 celsius) (average of 20-25km/h)
25l/100km in city area during winter (-10- +5)

And 7-8 l/100km interurban with average speed of 80-120km/h

I am wondering what is the back story of these models with 6 gears because I can’t find similar on sale anywhere.

Mine is purchased from a dealer that imported a few DS7 in our country from an auction with old models that did not sell for a long time, as they said, from korea or something like that…

So the car was brand new, from all aspects.

I’ve never had a DS 7 but the handbook for the 1st edition shows the petrol THP150 and THP165 both had 6speed EAT gearboxes.

I haven’t seen any video reviews of those cars but have read a report on the diesel that mentioned that the achieved figure was 6.6l/100km, against the ‘claimed’ 4.9l/100km. That’s quite a difference.

I can’t help but wonder if the weight of the vehicle reduces the fuel efficiency.


That’s very good know! Thanks!
That means my DS7 is the first version, I can confirm that mine is THP165.

Also if it uses the same components as the Peugeot 2008 or 3008 then it’s clear why it has such fuel consumption.

One of my friends owning a Peugeot 2008 also with 6 gears and 1.6t engine has almost the same consumption on our roads, so that’s why I think they share the engine and gearbox.

If you don’t have a handbook, you may care to know that I posted a link to all the DS handbooks and you can find that here
