  Suzuki cachet not yet up there with Toyota and Honda.

 

 

Your first thought when shopping a crossover might not be Suzuki. It’s one of the few brands known more for its name than its vehicles (what exactly is a Forenza, anyway?). And even then, the Suzuki most of us know has two wheels and a 200-mph top end.

 

But that may change after a first drive of the new XL7. Suzuki doesn’t have the cachet of a Honda or a Toyota, but its XL7 readily compares with the RAV4 and CR-V, and now offers seven-passenger seating, too. The sharply-dressed new XL7 is also a cheaper alternative to the coming class of crossovers that includes Ford’s Edge and the Honda Pilot, as well as existing Subaru wagons.

 

And then there’s the trump card — a seven-year, 100,000-mile, fully transferable warranty, nearly the best in the industry in time and miles.

 

Forget the former

 

The new XL7 isn’t what you remember from years past. Instead of a truck-based vehicle with rugged four-wheel drive (the last XL-7 was a stretched Grand Vitara, after all), the new version is longer, wider, and offers more seats and more power. Essentially, it’s a version of the Chevrolet Equinox crossover, but with one important difference other than style — the engine.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
