A couple of omissions in features keep the 2009 Suzuki XL7 wide open to improvement.
According to the Edmunds reviewer, the base trim "comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, tinted windows, auto on/off headlamps, full power accessories, a tilt steering wheel, cruise control, automatic climate control, trip computer and a six-speaker stereo with a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack," confirming the statement from Autoblog that this vehicle is "a well-equipped mid-size crossover at the sporty end of the spectrum."
Edmunds observes the "premium trim is similar, but adds 17-inch wheels, floor mats and available faux wood trim," and points out "the Luxury trim comes standard with leather upholstery, a power driver seat, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a sunroof and an in-dash six-CD changer."
Options "include a moonroof, a navigation system and a DVD entertainment system," but "unfortunately, buyers can pick only the nav or the entertainment system; they can't have both,” reports Cars.com. Other high-tech features such as Bluetooth and iPod connectivity are unavailable.
