The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Suzuki XL7 should be especially appealing to families who want a roomy vehicle with a small third-row seat for occasional use but don’t want to pay the higher sticker price or extra fuel expenses of larger SUVs. The 2008 Toyota RAV4 brings a little more space than most compact SUVs without a mid-size price.
