2003 XL-7 New Car Test Drive
Based on the Suzuki Grand Vitara, 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.
For 2002, the Suzuki XL-7 gets a significant power boost, a longer list of standard equipment, and interior improvements designed to enhance safety, convenience and comfort.
Suzuki's XL-7 is available in four trim levels: Standard, Plus, Touring, and Limited. All can be ordered with either two- or four-wheel drive.
Prices start at $19,599 for the rear-wheel-drive Standard model, which includes air conditioning, power windows, door locks, cruise control, and remote keyless entry.
Touring models add antilock brakes, alloy wheels, a premium stereo system, and a sunroof.
All models are powered by a 183-horsepower V6 and all trim lines but the Limited offer the choice of a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission.
For 2002, all four-wheel-drive XL-7 models get heated door mirrors. The Limited 4WD model also gets heated front seats. All Limited models get leather-covered steering wheels and shifter knobs and woodgrain trim for their center consoles.
For 2002, the XL-7 comes with Suzuki's 24-hour roadside assistance plan.
