The first generation of XL7 was an extension of the Grand Vitara and had a rear wheel dirve platform. The present day 2012 Suzuki XL7 with a two row seating like seating arrangement looks like a person is having a theatre ride. The second and third row of seats can be folded although not completely.
Fabric covered seats are still there and an option for leather seats are available. The 24 valve 2.7litre engine is here to drive the full family around and it does not care much for bad road conditions. An overdrive feature with two transmissions reducing the engine speed by 500 rpm makes it a wanted vehicle. Fuel economy is not much but the distances the driver can cover is a lot and adds to the advantage. A strong vehicle though but it is a bit heavier than the competitors like the RAV4 or CR-V of Honda. The only disadvantage is that a heavier vehicle needs more fuel for running.
