Review of the 2003 Suzuki XL-7

  • By offering a third-row seat in a compact SUV, Suzuki answers a question not many people are asking; but if you're one of them, the XL-7 is worth a look.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Affordable base price, competent on- and off-road handling, optional seven-passenger seating, stylish design.

  • Cons

    Cramped second- and third-row seating, side airbags not available.

  • What's New for 2003

    For 2003, Suzuki has updated the Grand Vitara XL-7's dash and console with wood grain trim, chrome accents and a 12-volt accessory outlet. Other additions to the interior include a new seven-speaker system, integrated audio and cruise control buttons on the steering wheel, an adjustable center armrest with CD storage and smaller rear headsets for better rearward visibility.

    Suzuki has also changed some of its trim names for 2003. The previous "Standard" trim has now simply become the XL-7, while the "Plus" has become the XL-7 with the option of third-row seating. The "Touring" model has been dropped all together. The Limited model is now being offered with a six-disc in-dash CD changer. Finally, a Limited model with the third-row option is also available with climate control and a rear air conditioning switch.

I bought this on an impulse and have not been disappointed. I love this inside ans out. I have yet to find any problems.

This is my 2nd Suzuki and really like the performance, value and mileage. Getting a fully loaded XL-7 for 10k lower than everyone else makes this vehicle very affordable! My salesperson really knew her stuff, but sitting in the XL-7 actually sold itself. And talk about performance, someone drove my vehicle and said it drove like his Tahoe. I recommend you test drive one and you'll never buy anything ele. Unbelievable value for your hard-earned dollars!

I absolutely love my XL-7! I had a mini-van previously but realized that I wasn't the mini-van type. I have two children who love the sunroof and elegant interior as much as I do. The only problem is getting the keys in the morning before my husband does.




Pearl white xl7 limited

Vehicle: 2003 Suzuki XL-7 Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

With 5800 miles under my belt I have to say the XL7 is a great car. I have the Limited package that makes the car look like a $40K SUV. Everyone laughs when I tell them it's a Suzuki, they don't believe itme Full leather, sun roof power everything. And the extra room the XL has is great. I just brought home two 60 inch beches for my boat. One in the cargo area and on on the roof with the optional racks attached. Let me see a RAV4 or even the new KIA pull that one off. And 7 seats to beet! The longer wheel base really helps the ride a well. Definately worth a second look. Captain Wade

This is the best ride I've ever been in. I enjoy the fact that I feel like I'm riding on air. I barely feel the bumps on the road, the engine is quiet and I enjoy the comfort that the vehicle provides.
