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.
The largest and most powerful vehicle Suzuki has ever sold, the XL7 has borrowed its predecessor's name but is new from the frame up. On sale in September, Suzuki claims it will be the most affordable all-wheel-drive vehicle on the market.
