2009 Suzuki XL7 Luxury 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


I've only had positive experiences with this vehicle. It had a good, higher powered engine that was fun to drive and could accelerate faster than most similarly priced SUVs. Very smooth ride and great traction even in snow. Felt like you were riding on a cloud! Stood out on the road with its unique lights and grill, too. Gas mileage left a little to be desired though. The main purpose of this review is to praise the safety of the vehicle though. The car was broadsided during a left turn directly in the drivers door by a sedan going over 50 mph. The side air bags and door impact frames absorbed the blow completely. We were thankfully able to walk away with no damage whatsoever.

Best Features

The heated leather seats and climate control made the ride comfortable in cold weather and the 3rd seat row allowed for effective car-pooling. The 6-CD audio player with iPhone jack was a definite plus as well.

Worst Features

Rear window visibility was a bit poor, however a camera is optional on the higher end models. Turning was fairly sluggish, but reasonable for an SUV.
