For 2009, the Suzuki XL7, an affordable crossover SUV that is available in five- and seven-passenger configurations, gets a new six-speed automatic transmission for improved fuel economy and self-leveling rear suspension. With a choice of front- or all-wheel drive, the Suzuki XL7 is powered by a 3.6L V6 engine channeling 152 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque as mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with Manumatic shift mode. EPA estimated fuel economy for the Suzuki XL7 is 17 mpg city/24 mpg hwy for the FWD trim levels but only 16/23 mpg for the AWD trims. With a 5-star crash test ratings for front and side impact, Suzuki XL7 standard safety features include traction control, a four-wheel antilock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution, advanced dual-stage driver airbags, weight-sensing front-passenger airbags, side-curtain airbags for all rows, head-impact protection, and much more. With the second and third row seats folded flat and out of the way, up to 95.2 cubic feet of cargo space is available and towing capacity is 3,500 pounds, when configured properly.Read more Read less

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