The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
A major redesign in 2007 transformed the Suzuki XL7 into a modern mid-size crossover with available seven-passenger seating. For 2009 the XL7 gains a six-speed automatic transmission that helps deliver an almost 10 percent increase in fuel economy. Though the first-generation Outlander was often overlooked, the updated 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander has emerged as a well-rounded vehicle--and one of the sportiest-driving small crossovers.
