Model Highlights

A 3.6L, 24-valve V6, making 252 horsepower and 243 pound-feet of torque, is standard on the XL7, along with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine is designed for long maintenance intervals. It's also especially smooth, due to a double-isolated cradle system.

The XL7 comes in four different trim levels: Base, Premium, Luxury and Limited. All but the base model are offered with 7-passenger layouts; all modes provide a 50/50-split folding third-row seat. The base model comes only with front-wheel drive, but all other models are available with a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive system uses a rear differential module to help send up to 50 percent of engine power to the rear wheels only when needed after front wheel slippage. With front-wheel drive, the XL7 achieves an EPA fuel economy rating of 17 mpg city, 24 highway. With all-wheel drive, the XL7 gets an EPA fuel economy rating of 16 mpg city, 23 highway.

Anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) are standard across the line, along with an electronic stability control system, which helps prevent the loss of control in a sudden evasive maneuver or on an especially slippery roadway. Rollover-sensing side curtain air bags and seat-mounted side air bags are also included. A 4-wheel independent suspension also helps provide a smooth ride and very carlike handling. Seven-passenger models get Nivomat load-leveling shocks to maintain comfort and safety. The 2009 XL7 also is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System which monitors all four tires.

Due to the independent rear suspension, the XL7 has an unusually low, flat load floor, which also allows a more spacious third row than is typical for a vehicle this size. A 60/40-split reclining second-row seat tumbles forward and folds, while the available 50/50-split third-row seat can be folded flat into the floor. The front passenger seat also folds flat to allow especially long items such as surfboards or kayaks. All seven-passenger models also get underfloor storage and an auxiliary rear air conditioning system with separate fan controls.

Standard features on the base model include remote keyless entry, tilt steering, cruise control, roof rails, alloy wheels, automatic climate control, power windows, locks and mirrors, and a 6-speaker CD sound system. The Premium adds floor mats, a wood-trim appliqué, and larger 17-inch alloys, while the Luxury gets leather upholstery, a power driver's seat, heated front seats, a sunroof, six-disc changer, and leather steering wheel with integrated audio controls.

At the top of the line, the Limited brings chrome-finished wheels, fog lamps, silver-colored roof rack rails, a rear spoiler, remote engine start, and a Pioneer premium sound system with seven speakers. The remote start system that's now standard on the Limited not only turns on the engine from up to 60 yards away but also turns on the climate-control system and, when temperatures are below 41 degrees Fahrenheit, turns on the seat heater. A touch-screen navigation system and DVD entertainment systems are among the few options.

The 2009 Suzuki XL7 comes with Americas number one warranty. A 7 year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty with no deductibles and is fully transferable

Value Writeup

The 2009 XL7 is the largest vehicle Suzuki builds, according to the automaker. The crossover SUV, oriented for on-road duty and people-moving, is closely related to the Chevrolet Equinox and Pontiac Torrent but fitted with a standard, Suzuki-built overhead-cam V6 across the line. The XL7 is also particularly attractive because of its generous safety features and top five-star safety ratings in both front and side impact crash tests from the federal government. A modest towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds is enough to tow a small boat or pop-up trailer, and the XL7 is covered by Suzuki's 100,000-mile, 7-year, fully transferable powertrain warranty.


Spacious interior; safety; thoughtful standard features; strong warranty; available all-wheel drive.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
