The 2008 Suzuki XL7 has adequate scores in crash tests; it earned five stars in all crash tests performed at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) except for rollover, in which it earned four. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the XL7 top ratings in its frontal offset test and the second-highest 'Acceptable' rating in side-impact crash testing--otherwise respectable, but in a class populated by many vehicles getting straight 'Good' ratings.

Cars.com reports that the Suzuki XL7 "comes with side curtain airbags [and] a tire pressure monitoring system." According to Edmunds, additional Suzuki XL7 standard safety equipment includes "antilock brakes, stability control and traction control."

The lack of outward visibility is another potential safety issue. ConsumerGuide reports that this Suzuki 2008 vehicle's "rear roofline and small back window impede vision astern and to the right rear." However, Edmunds says that some Suzuki XL7 models "can be equipped with a parking camera displayed in the rearview mirror."


With good but not stellar crash-test ratings, the 2008 Suzuki XL7 ranks in the middle of its class.

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.
