2005 Suzuki XL-7 Overview

Aside from a minor cosmetic change here and there, not much changed for Suzuki's midsize SUV in 2005. The XL-7 comes in 8 trims, half in 2WD and half in 4WD. All trims have 4 doors, seat either 5 or 7, and use a 2.7 L, 185 hp V6 powertrain.

Gas mileage generally comes out to 17 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway. Maximum cargo capacity comes out to around 75 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded down. Passenger space ranges from 117 to 127 cubic feet, depending on the trim you choose. Finally, don't expect to make the XL-7 your beast of burden because it can only tow up to 3000 lbs.

Overall, drivers agree that if you want to officially own an SUV without paying a pretty penny, the XL-7 gets the job done with its third row and decent handling. However, it can get a bit cramped inside and the design could use an update. In any event, the 2005 Suzuki XL-7 reminds SUV fans that you generally get what you pay for.
