Last year, DS Automobiles unveiled the DS 7 Crossback Louvre Edition, in a bid to pay homage to the world’s most visited and probably most famous museum.

If you live in the UK, you’ll have to spend upwards of £46,530 ($63,540) in order to land one of these special edition SUVs, and if you like a well-specified car, then you’re probably going to enjoy what you’re getting here for your money.

The DS 7 Crossback Louvre Edition is based on the high-spec Ultra Prestige trim and features gloss black surfaces on the outside, unique 20-inch alloy wheels, pyramid shaped stainless steel air vent controllers inside, Nappa leather on the console storage compartment, plus the camera controlled DS Active Scan suspension and the DS Connect Pilot with its level 2 autonomous driving features.

“The incredible opportunity to collaborate with the famous Louvre museum in Paris has resulted in the exceptional and exclusive DS 7 CROSSBACK LOUVRE. DS Automobiles’ relationship with this world renowned museum stretches back more than half a decade, our shared passion for art and culture making this a strong and unique synergy,” said DS Automobiles UK exec Jules Tilstone.

“With nearly 200 artworks to explore on its 12-inch infotainment screen and a host of visual upgrades and premium French luxury details, the limited edition DS 7 CROSSBACK LOUVRE is a fitting celebration of the shared avant-garde spirit and rich heritage of these Parisian brands.”

The French crossover, available in Ink Blue, Perla Nera Black and Platinum Grey, is powered by a 1.6-liter PureTech 225 gasoline unit, mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Total output is 225 PS (222 HP).

Buying a DS 7 Crossback Louvre Edition also means receiving a “Friends of the Louvre” card which guarantees you unlimited admission to the actual museum for one whole year.

The paint is barely dry on the new generation S-Class, but Mercedes-Benz has already announced a recall for it.

Certain units of the German brand’s flagship sedan were apparently equipped with shorter inner tie rods, which “could not permanently withstand the stresses of driving”, leading to loss of steering ability and thus increasing the risk of an accident.

Owners of the 2021 S-Class are advised to make an appointment with an authorized dealer, whose technicians will inspect the inner tie rods and replace them if necessary. All work will be carried out free of charge.

“We apologize for this additional workshop visit and hope for your understanding”, the automaker reportedly said, quoted by BusinessInsider.

“Worldwide, up to 1,400 units of the new S-Class that are already in customer hands could be affected by the current recall”, a Mercedes spokesperson said. “We became aware of this complaint based on feedback from a supplier. This component is delivered pre-assembled as a complete system and installed.”

Deliveries of the new S-Class in North America should commence shortly, with the model starting at $109,800 (excluding the $1,050 destination and delivery fee) for the S 500 4MATIC Luxury Line, a $15,550 hike over its predecessor. The current range-topping variant is the S580 4Matic Executive Line, which will launch from $131,450, while, at some point, the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class will join the lineup.

Honda will receive assistance from General Motors and Cruise for its planned self-driving mobility service (MaaS) in Japan.

In a recent statement, Honda confirmed that Cruise will send its self-driving test vehicles to Japan and begin local development of them later this year. The Japanese car manufacturer has also confirmed that its self-driving mobility service will use the Cruise Origin.

“This collaboration with Cruise will enable the creation of new value for mobility and people’s daily lives, which we strive for under Honda’s 2030 Vision of serving people worldwide with the joy of expanding their life’s potential,” president and representative director of Honda Motor Co, Takahiro Hachigo, said in a statement. “Through active collaboration with partners who share the same interests and aspirations, Honda will continue to accelerate the realization of our autonomous vehicle MaaS business in Japan.”

“Cruise’s mission to provide safer, cleaner and more accessible transportation is not limited to the US,” added Cruise chief executive Dan Ammann. “These are major changes that are needed almost everywhere in the world, and this is a small, but symbolic step with Honda on our global journey.”

Honda has been a long-time investor in Cruise and the latest news comes just a few days after it was confirmed that Microsoft was among a host of new institutional investors to back Cruise, valuing the company at approximately $30 billion.

Moving forward, Cruise will use Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, Azure, for its self-driving cars.
