2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara XL-7

At a Glance

Drive Types 4WD
Transmissions A4-speed
Fuel Economy 17 (city), 20 (highway)

Bound to be compared to cute-utes like the CR-V, the XL7 is actually gunning for the mid-sized segment with more room and standard V-6 power. Clean styling, a healthy list of standard features and a well thought out design won't hurt in this endeavor.
