The DS ConnectedCAM uses an outward facing camera mounted beneath the rear view mirror that has an in-built 16GB memory. It is equipped with HD GPS technology and Wi-Fi enabling drivers to have access to video recording in the event of an accident (30 seconds before and one minute afterwards) and to take a photo of the area outside the vehicle. Drivers can remotely connect to the device using a compatible smartphone. The system works independently of the infotainment system and uses a dedicated on/off button and a button to start recording and automatically share photos.

DS ConnectedCAM is available as part of the Premium Safety pack (standard on Ultra Prestige), and is also available as a stand-alone option on this trim level. The safety pack also includes Active blind spot detection, Lane keeping assist, Extended traffic sign recognition, Driver attention alert, DS Connected Pilot, DS ConnectedCAM. The pack costs £1,450 for Performance models, £750 for Prestige models and £400 for Ultra Prestige.
