In 2007 Suzuki introduced two timely new vehicles, including the crossover XL7, and celebrated a marked increase in sales. The current fluctuation in fuel costs and slow down in big SUV sales actually bodes well for Suzuki, as many Americans are looking to move to smaller, more fuel-efficient versions of their big SUVs. Crossover utility vehicles (CUVs) like the 2009 XL7 are built on car-like unibodies and have some attributes of both minivans and SUVs. The sleek XL7 joins the crossover segment as a modern, style-conscious seven-passenger vehicle with optional all-wheel drive and excellent fuel economy. There are three trim levels: Premium, Luxury and Limited.

"I bought by 2007 Suzuki XL7 AWD about 4 months ago and absolutly love this SUV. It is super roomy and great for family vacations. Mine does not have the 3rd row but that works out fine because the back area is now free to load up. Let me tell you about the deal I got. It was unreal. The car booked at 25,500 and I walked out of the dealer paying $17,200 + taxes. How did I do it. Well, they were offering 4K off, + another 1k for competitive vehicle for a trade in and they gave me about $750 for my BEAT UP Chrysler mini-van that we worth exactly what they offered. Also, they sold me the car for invoice so that added up to the price of 17.2K. It is without a doubt the BEST DEAL I have ever seen for a SUV that is AWD and runs PERFECT. Tons of power, manumatic shifting, and awesome looks. Sure it is not loaded up but for a family on the GO it rocks. Also, gas is not under $2 so life is SWEET!! It gets EXACTLY what is stated on the charts when it comes to MPG. The 2007 has the better MPG rating due to the electronic AWD system that only kicks in when needed. To me, for the price I paid the deal for this quality is great. For 25K I would have to re-think it and compare to others. We all know how that goes. Value is based on what you get for what you pay and with this vehicle I am 100% happy. Plus Suzuki treats you like a customer. They call to see if you like it, they sent me a gas card since the car was not full when I bought it. Everything has been impressive. Also, the warranty is STRONG unlike many of the american warranties that shift every year because they know their motors and transmissions are junk. You will love the space and ride of this vehicle and it has the cool S and chrome front grill. For those that do not want to drive the same old look this SUV stands out with a cool style. Enjoy."

"Very spacious for 5, OK for 2 in the third row. For its class, the XL7 delivers excellent power, ride, handling, and MPG. Great in snow. Our '07 proved highly reliable, and saved most of my family when a DUI putz sailed through a stop sign and T-boned the XL7, which was carrying my wife, her parents, and our two daughters. Chassis safety engineering and multiple airbags all did their jobs to perfection -- no injuries. Thank you, Suzuki."
