This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
Based on the Suzuki Grand Vitara, the Suzuki XL-7 is a decent alternative to a minivan or for a small family with a couple of kids who are too big for safety seats but not big enough to complain about being cramped in the way-back seats. The XL-7 seats up to seven passengers, with a tiny third-row bench as standard equipment. It's built on a longer wheelbase and features a more powerful V6 engine than the Grand Vitara. It is built on the chassis of a truck frame. It comes in either rear- or four-wheel drive and is powered by a 185 hp 2.7-liter V-6 engine. Transmission options are either a five-speed automatic or five-speed manual. The Suzuki XL-7 is a carryover from 2004.
