Most reviewers read by TheCarConnection.com’s editors agree the appearance of the 2009 Suzuki XL7 is attractive, but not everyone likes the interior.
Reviewers aren’t impressed with the overall Suzuki 2009 decor. Car and Driver reports that the Suzuki XL7 interior "is available with faux wood or satin nickel trim." To the reviewer at Autoblog, "the plastic that comprises the lower portion of the dashboard and the door panels looks like a remnant from some 1970s house of funk, and overall there are more textures and finishes in the interior than there should be." The Auto Channel has a vaguely positive comment, adding that there are "plenty of interior lights."
Regarding the exterior, reviewers at MotherProof simply note that the Suzuki XL7 "looks great...the sporty front grille promises a fun ride, while the sleek lines of the body hint at luxuries within." Kelley Blue Book says "with a styling combination of SUV and station wagon, the sleek 2009 Suzuki XL7 has a balanced exterior with triangular headlamps among its most noticeable features." Autoblog opines that the exterior design of the XL7 is "striving toward distinctive, recognizable styling."
