A Damn Good Riding Handeling And Valued Vehicle by bluelephant

Big Guy by Victor
 — Well, the only actual thing I didn't enjoy that much was the car's front design. A bit too outdated, even in 2003. I never had any trouble with maintenance, although it was hard to get over 6km/l in... Read More

2003 Suzuki XL-7

Other than a redesigned interior, automatic climate control, and 6 disc cd player, Suzuki switched up the trim levels for 2003.  Instead of Standard and Plus, the XL-7 now comes in 2WD and 4WD versions of the Touring and Limited SUV's.  All 4 trims have a 2.7 L, 183 hp V6 engine.  Touring trims have standard 5 speed manual and optional 4 speed automatic transmission while Limited trims have 4 speed automatic transmission.

Gas mileage comes out to 17 mpg in the city and 20 on the highway.  All 4 trims have 4 doors, seat 7, and tow up to 3000 lbs.  If you need more standard and optional features, go with a Limited trim.  Finally, for those who need to carry a lot, the XL-7 delivers up to 75 cubic feet of cargo space with the second and third row folded down.

Overall, drivers will tell you that the XL-7 gives you decent handling and good seating capacity at a low price.  However, passenger space in the back rows gets a bit tight and V6 powertrain could use a little extra juice.  If you're looking for a solid first SUV with limited funds, look into an XL-7.
