GENERAL TECH SPEC EQUIPMENT

SETTING STANDARDS IN THE 4x4 MARKET THE GRAND VITARA XL-7

Blending impressive flexibility and class leading levels of interior space within a dynamically styled and manageably sized package, the striking XL-7 has formidable off road abilities as well as all the load carrying advantages of a large estate car. 

The value-for-money XL-7 offers an unsurpassed combination of impressive features – including 2.7-litre V6 petrol or 2.0-litre turbodiesel power and 5 or 7 seats – to provide a sensibly-sized, easy-to-park alternative to many much bulkier competitors. 

Building on the great success of the Grand Vitara 5-door, the XL-7 has a 320mm [12.6 inch] longer wheelbase and is 505mm [19.1 inches] longer overall, making it the largest vehicle Suzuki has produced. 

Under the bonnet, power comes from either an all-aluminium 2.7-litre DOHC 24-valve V6 engine coupled to a 5-speed manual gearbox or optional 5-speed, electronically controlled, automatic transmission, or a 2.0-litre common rail turbodiesel driving through a 5-speed manual gearbox. 

Versatility and convenience

Versatility, convenience and style are amongst the prime reasons for the popularity of 4x4 vehicles and with the Grand Vitara XL-7 buyers will find all these attributes in abundance. 

Measuring 4,700mm [185.0 ins] overall, XL-7 is 457mm [18 ins] longer than the RAV4, 284mm [11.2 ins] longer than the Freelander, 152mm [6 ins] longer than the Honda CRV and is only 33mm [1.3 ins] shorter than the Discovery, 84mm [3.3 ins] shorter than the Isuzu Trooper and 135mm [5.3 ins] shorter than the largest Shogun. 

To ensure that all XL-7’s extra interior space is easily accessible, the rear doors are exceptionally wide - as much as 203mm [8 ins wider] at the base and 305mm [12 ins] wider at the top - when compared to others. 

The second row seats in both 5 and 7 seater models and the third row in the 7 seater feature split folding to boost the load and passenger carrying options, and for moving family, friends and essential gear around town, into the country or off the beaten track, the XL-7 is without equal in its price range. 

When bulky objects have to be carried the 7 seater’s 1,492 litres (52.7 cu. ft) load capacity with the second and third row seats folded provides plenty of room. But for one of the very best load and luggage capacities in the class, then the 5-seater fits the bill. Even with the rear seats in their upright position this totals 900 litres [32 cu.ft] whilst, with the rear seats folded flat, capacity increases to 1,687 litres [60 cu.ft]. For security, a removable ‘roller blind’ type luggage cover for use when the rear seats are in their upright position, is standard (5-seater). 

In addition a further 46kg [100 lbs] of luggage or cargo can be carried on the standard roof rails. 

XL-7’s second row seating features slide and recline as standard while in the 7-seater third row seats can also be reclined. 

All New Interiors

In April 2003, the interior, controls and instrumentation underwent a totally comprehensive and thorough redesign in order to provide class leading levels of quality, style, comfort, durability and ease of use. 

Ahead of the driver a large, contoured panel contains the speedometer, tachometer, fuel and engine temperature gauges, an array of warning lamps including low fuel and door open reminders and, on automatic models, a gear position indicator. 

The panel is faced with a semi-opaque screen and the instruments – which are surrounded by metallic trim and are back lit by fibre optics to reduce eye fatigue and for great clarity - become instantly visible as soon as the ignition is switched on. 

A  'easy grip' steering wheel is tilt adjustable and incorporates fingertip switches for lights, indicators, front and rear windscreen washers, wipers and the mode and volume of the radio and CD player. The latter is integrated at the top of the front centre console and has large, simple to use controls, all within easy reach of both the driver and front seat passenger. 

 

Stylish Trim, Practicality and Everything Within Easy Reach
To the driver's right and installed at the front of the armrest in the door is a master panel with control switches to adjust the electric door mirrors and to operate the door and rear window locks as well as the electric windows. It is surrounded by walnut wood trim. 

In addition to the integrated multifunction radio and CD player, the front centre console, which is also faced and flanked by the same trim, incorporates three circular, illuminated dial-up and push button controls for the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. 

It also houses two storage compartments – one containing two cup holders – and the other with a damped action cover, a cigarette lighter and a 12 volt socket for charging a mobile telephone or powering other devices, and a digital clock which – at the push of a button also monitors the outside temperature. An additional 12 volt socket is located in the luggage compartment of all models.

 Mid way between the front seats and just behind the gear lever and the selector which is used to operate Suzuki's Drive Select 4x4 System* - which are also surrounded and highlighted by the same matching wood trim - is a centre arm rest with sliding fore and aft adjustment.

*enabling 4 wheel drive to be engaged when moving in a straight line at up to 62 mph
[100 km/h].

 

Ingenious and Intriguing
Particularly ingeniously designed, the armrest can be 'flipped over' to reveal a further two cup holders that are then within easy reach of rear seat passengers and to open up a 'hidden' storage compartment for the stowage of valuables. 

An additional intriguing item is a unique 'portable' ash tray which can be installed into any one of the cup holders to suit the passengers' / driver's habits! 

Even More Storage, Everywhere
Additional storage is provided in all models by a lockable glove box with damped action cover, in the pockets in all side doors, in the rear of the front seats, underneath the rear luggage area, in a sliding tray beneath the front passenger seat and, in the 7 seat model, to the right and left of the rear seats where there is space for small packages and yet another cup or bottle holder. 

Above the windscreen are two map reading lights and a two compartment overhead console - again featuring access via damped action covers – designed primarily for stowage of smaller items such as sun glasses.

 

Comfort, style and class

XL-7 is available as standard with class-leading equipment levels including anti-lock brakes with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution), power steering, electric windows and mirrors, remote controlled central locking, immobiliser, roof rails, height-adjustable driver’s seat, and a tilt adjustable steering column. The standard specification also includes electronic climate control with integral air filtration, with separate air conditioning in the rear of the seven seater. 

Other standard equipment includes multi-reflector halogen headlights, rear wiper/washer, high level stop lamp, velour upholstery, adjustable armrests, six spoke 16-inch alloy wheels and a stereo radio/CD system with four speakers. 

Safety, strength, durability ... and good road manners

The XL-7 clearly differentiates itself from the competition with its abundant interior space, five/seven seats, V6 petrol or turbodiesel power plants, comprehensive list of standard equipment and great value for money. Less obvious are the XL-7’s noise, vibration and harshness reduction features and its safety engineering. 

The XL-7’s engines are isolated with special liquid-filled mounts that help eliminate vibration.  Add to that calibrated suspension bushing and extensive sound attenuation technologies, and the XL-7’s comprehensive noise, vibration and harshness control strategy delivers a quiet, serene ride. 

The body structure is strategically reinforced in the interest of durability, safety and noise control. Front and rear crumple zones are engineered to work in conjunction with XL-7’s bumper system and ladder frame to help dissipate energy in severe impacts. 

 

To help maintain the integrity of the passenger compartment in a side-impact collision, A-, B- and C-pillars of XL-7 are constructed of the same high-tensile steel used in its separate ladder frame chassis. 

Steel reinforced posts and side impact beams help create a robust passenger compartment.  Inside the interior features a variety of safety technologies, including second-generation dual airbags, child seat anchors and rear-door child safety locks. 

Suspension and handling

Engineered for a smooth and confident ride on the road, XL-7 also has the toughness required to stand up to some of the most demanding off road terrain. 

Front MacPherson strut suspension has separate coil springs and dampers whilst the rear axle is positioned by a sophisticated five-link system that allows generous wheel travel and closely controls lateral axle movement for precise handling. In addition, XL-7’s shock absorbers are charged with pressurised nitrogen for consistent damping action to smoothly handle various road conditions. 

Overall the suspension is calibrated to respond to driving surface irregularities in natural and paved surfaces alike.  The resulting ride is comfortably compliant, with plenty of suspension travel in reserve. 

The ride characteristics are further enhanced by XL-7’s long 2,800 mm (110.2 ins) wheelbase, which minimises fore and aft pitching. To create a confidence-inspiring balance of handling quickness and predictability XL-7 relies on rack-and-pinion steering, a front lateral stabiliser bar and relatively wide, low-profile 235/60 R16 tyres. 

The power-assisted steering blends confident motorway handling with easy low-speed manoeuvrability and delivers a surprisingly tight 11.8 m [38.7 ft] [measured kerb-to-kerb] turning circle. 

Although XL-7 is impressively roomy inside, it delivers exceptional driving ease and manoeuvrability around-town - especially when parking - and even when traversing narrow and winding country lanes. 

 

Sophisticated V6 power

The XL-7’s V6 power plant is an advanced all-aluminium DOHC 24-valve unit producing its peak output of 170 horsepower [127kW] at 6,000 rpm and 170 lb ft [231 Nm] of torque at 3,300 rpm which, apart from its many other benefits, provides a generous maximum braked towing capacity of 1,850kg [4,078 lbs]. 

To help maximise the engine’s output the differential gearing has been lowered. The result is improved acceleration while still maintaining good fuel economy. 

The four valves per cylinder ensure free breathing while quad overhead camshafts provide precise valve control even at high rpm.  Instead of using a rubber timing belt that requires occasional replacement the XL-7 uses an innovative two-stage timing chain that is self-lubricating, self-adjusting and maintenance-free. 

Maintenance is further reduced by the direct ignition system that places the ignition coils over the spark plugs to eliminate the need for a distributor and high-tension ignition leads and by the use of automatic Direct Drive Valve (DDV) train adjusters which eliminate the need for valve tappet clearance adjustment. 

In addition, and to maximise torque output and fuel economy, XL-7 V6 has a specially-tuned crossover induction system which contributes to excellent fuel economy for a vehicle of its type and size. 

Common rail turbodiesel

XL-7’s diesel engine is a remarkably efficient turbodiesel unit featuring the latest common rail technology. Output of the 4-cylinder 1997cc 16-valve engine is 107 bhp [108.8ps/80kW] at 4,000rpm. Maximum torque of 199 lb.ft [27.5kg.m/270Nm] is generated at just 1,750rpm for strong and flexible performance and, with a combined fuel consumption figure of 35.3mpg, economy is impressive. 

Putting down the power

For buyers looking for reliable traction on-road and off, XL-7’s four-wheel drive system is particularly capable.  When travelling in a straight line at up to 62 mph [100 km/h], the driver can move between two-wheel drive high and four-wheel drive. A pneumatic actuator automatically engages the front differential and front axle when four-wheel drive is selected so manually locking the wheel hubs is not required. And when in four-wheel drive - and unlike most competitors - two gear ratio ranges are provided: four-wheel drive high for smooth surfaces and four-wheel drive low for treacherous, punishing terrain. 

Accessories

To enable owners to personalise their XL-7 to exactly match their lifestyles and requirements for day-to-day use a comprehensive range of factory approved and warranted accessory options is available.   This range includes:           

·           Spare wheel covers

·              Roof boxes

·           Chrome lamp/mirror trims

·              Side step boards

·           Front guards

·              Roof racks

·              Detachable tow bar

·           Cargo tray

·              Tailgate ‘organiser’

GENERAL

SETTING STANDARDS IN THE 4x4 MARKET THE GRAND VITARA XL-7

Blending impressive flexibility and class leading levels of interior space within a dynamically styled and manageably sized package, the striking XL-7 has formidable off road abilities as well as all the load carrying advantages of a large estate car. 

The value-for-money XL-7 offers an unsurpassed combination of impressive features – including 2.7-litre V6 petrol or 2.0-litre turbodiesel power and 5 or 7 seats – to provide a sensibly-sized, easy-to-park alternative to many much bulkier competitors. 

Building on the great success of the Grand Vitara 5-door, the XL-7 has a 320mm [12.6 inch] longer wheelbase and is 505mm [19.1 inches] longer overall, making it the largest vehicle Suzuki has produced. 

Under the bonnet, power comes from either an all-aluminium 2.7-litre DOHC 24-valve V6 engine coupled to a 5-speed manual gearbox or optional 5-speed, electronically controlled, automatic transmission, or a 2.0-litre common rail turbodiesel driving through a 5-speed manual gearbox. 

Versatility and convenience

Versatility, convenience and style are amongst the prime reasons for the popularity of 4x4 vehicles and with the Grand Vitara XL-7 buyers will find all these attributes in abundance. 

Measuring 4,700mm [185.0 ins] overall, XL-7 is 457mm [18 ins] longer than the RAV4, 284mm [11.2 ins] longer than the Freelander, 152mm [6 ins] longer than the Honda CRV and is only 33mm [1.3 ins] shorter than the Discovery, 84mm [3.3 ins] shorter than the Isuzu Trooper and 135mm [5.3 ins] shorter than the largest Shogun. 

To ensure that all XL-7’s extra interior space is easily accessible, the rear doors are exceptionally wide - as much as 203mm [8 ins wider] at the base and 305mm [12 ins] wider at the top - when compared to others. 

The second row seats in both 5 and 7 seater models and the third row in the 7 seater feature split folding to boost the load and passenger carrying options, and for moving family, friends and essential gear around town, into the country or off the beaten track, the XL-7 is without equal in its price range. 

When bulky objects have to be carried the 7 seater’s 1,492 litres (52.7 cu. ft) load capacity with the second and third row seats folded provides plenty of room. But for one of the very best load and luggage capacities in the class, then the 5-seater fits the bill. Even with the rear seats in their upright position this totals 900 litres [32 cu.ft] whilst, with the rear seats folded flat, capacity increases to 1,687 litres [60 cu.ft]. For security, a removable ‘roller blind’ type luggage cover for use when the rear seats are in their upright position, is standard (5-seater). 

In addition a further 46kg [100 lbs] of luggage or cargo can be carried on the standard roof rails. 

XL-7’s second row seating features slide and recline as standard while in the 7-seater third row seats can also be reclined. 

All New Interiors

In April 2003, the interior, controls and instrumentation underwent a totally comprehensive and thorough redesign in order to provide class leading levels of quality, style, comfort, durability and ease of use. 

Ahead of the driver a large, contoured panel contains the speedometer, tachometer, fuel and engine temperature gauges, an array of warning lamps including low fuel and door open reminders and, on automatic models, a gear position indicator. 

The panel is faced with a semi-opaque screen and the instruments – which are surrounded by metallic trim and are back lit by fibre optics to reduce eye fatigue and for great clarity - become instantly visible as soon as the ignition is switched on. 

A  'easy grip' steering wheel is tilt adjustable and incorporates fingertip switches for lights, indicators, front and rear windscreen washers, wipers and the mode and volume of the radio and CD player. The latter is integrated at the top of the front centre console and has large, simple to use controls, all within easy reach of both the driver and front seat passenger. 

 

Stylish Trim, Practicality and Everything Within Easy Reach
To the driver's right and installed at the front of the armrest in the door is a master panel with control switches to adjust the electric door mirrors and to operate the door and rear window locks as well as the electric windows. It is surrounded by walnut wood trim. 

In addition to the integrated multifunction radio and CD player, the front centre console, which is also faced and flanked by the same trim, incorporates three circular, illuminated dial-up and push button controls for the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. 

It also houses two storage compartments – one containing two cup holders – and the other with a damped action cover, a cigarette lighter and a 12 volt socket for charging a mobile telephone or powering other devices, and a digital clock which – at the push of a button also monitors the outside temperature. An additional 12 volt socket is located in the luggage compartment of all models.

 Mid way between the front seats and just behind the gear lever and the selector which is used to operate Suzuki's Drive Select 4x4 System* - which are also surrounded and highlighted by the same matching wood trim - is a centre arm rest with sliding fore and aft adjustment.

*enabling 4 wheel drive to be engaged when moving in a straight line at up to 62 mph
[100 km/h].

 

Ingenious and Intriguing
Particularly ingeniously designed, the armrest can be 'flipped over' to reveal a further two cup holders that are then within easy reach of rear seat passengers and to open up a 'hidden' storage compartment for the stowage of valuables. 

An additional intriguing item is a unique 'portable' ash tray which can be installed into any one of the cup holders to suit the passengers' / driver's habits! 

Even More Storage, Everywhere
Additional storage is provided in all models by a lockable glove box with damped action cover, in the pockets in all side doors, in the rear of the front seats, underneath the rear luggage area, in a sliding tray beneath the front passenger seat and, in the 7 seat model, to the right and left of the rear seats where there is space for small packages and yet another cup or bottle holder. 

Above the windscreen are two map reading lights and a two compartment overhead console - again featuring access via damped action covers – designed primarily for stowage of smaller items such as sun glasses.

 

Comfort, style and class

XL-7 is available as standard with class-leading equipment levels including anti-lock brakes with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution), power steering, electric windows and mirrors, remote controlled central locking, immobiliser, roof rails, height-adjustable driver’s seat, and a tilt adjustable steering column. The standard specification also includes electronic climate control with integral air filtration, with separate air conditioning in the rear of the seven seater. 

Other standard equipment includes multi-reflector halogen headlights, rear wiper/washer, high level stop lamp, velour upholstery, adjustable armrests, six spoke 16-inch alloy wheels and a stereo radio/CD system with four speakers. 

Safety, strength, durability ... and good road manners

The XL-7 clearly differentiates itself from the competition with its abundant interior space, five/seven seats, V6 petrol or turbodiesel power plants, comprehensive list of standard equipment and great value for money. Less obvious are the XL-7’s noise, vibration and harshness reduction features and its safety engineering. 

The XL-7’s engines are isolated with special liquid-filled mounts that help eliminate vibration.  Add to that calibrated suspension bushing and extensive sound attenuation technologies, and the XL-7’s comprehensive noise, vibration and harshness control strategy delivers a quiet, serene ride. 

The body structure is strategically reinforced in the interest of durability, safety and noise control. Front and rear crumple zones are engineered to work in conjunction with XL-7’s bumper system and ladder frame to help dissipate energy in severe impacts. 

 

To help maintain the integrity of the passenger compartment in a side-impact collision, A-, B- and C-pillars of XL-7 are constructed of the same high-tensile steel used in its separate ladder frame chassis. 

Steel reinforced posts and side impact beams help create a robust passenger compartment.  Inside the interior features a variety of safety technologies, including second-generation dual airbags, child seat anchors and rear-door child safety locks. 

Suspension and handling

Engineered for a smooth and confident ride on the road, XL-7 also has the toughness required to stand up to some of the most demanding off road terrain. 

Front MacPherson strut suspension has separate coil springs and dampers whilst the rear axle is positioned by a sophisticated five-link system that allows generous wheel travel and closely controls lateral axle movement for precise handling. In addition, XL-7’s shock absorbers are charged with pressurised nitrogen for consistent damping action to smoothly handle various road conditions. 

Overall the suspension is calibrated to respond to driving surface irregularities in natural and paved surfaces alike.  The resulting ride is comfortably compliant, with plenty of suspension travel in reserve. 

The ride characteristics are further enhanced by XL-7’s long 2,800 mm (110.2 ins) wheelbase, which minimises fore and aft pitching. To create a confidence-inspiring balance of handling quickness and predictability XL-7 relies on rack-and-pinion steering, a front lateral stabiliser bar and relatively wide, low-profile 235/60 R16 tyres. 

The power-assisted steering blends confident motorway handling with easy low-speed manoeuvrability and delivers a surprisingly tight 11.8 m [38.7 ft] [measured kerb-to-kerb] turning circle. 

Although XL-7 is impressively roomy inside, it delivers exceptional driving ease and manoeuvrability around-town - especially when parking - and even when traversing narrow and winding country lanes. 

 

Sophisticated V6 power

The XL-7’s V6 power plant is an advanced all-aluminium DOHC 24-valve unit producing its peak output of 170 horsepower [127kW] at 6,000 rpm and 170 lb ft [231 Nm] of torque at 3,300 rpm which, apart from its many other benefits, provides a generous maximum braked towing capacity of 1,850kg [4,078 lbs]. 

To help maximise the engine’s output the differential gearing has been lowered. The result is improved acceleration while still maintaining good fuel economy. 

The four valves per cylinder ensure free breathing while quad overhead camshafts provide precise valve control even at high rpm.  Instead of using a rubber timing belt that requires occasional replacement the XL-7 uses an innovative two-stage timing chain that is self-lubricating, self-adjusting and maintenance-free. 

Maintenance is further reduced by the direct ignition system that places the ignition coils over the spark plugs to eliminate the need for a distributor and high-tension ignition leads and by the use of automatic Direct Drive Valve (DDV) train adjusters which eliminate the need for valve tappet clearance adjustment. 

In addition, and to maximise torque output and fuel economy, XL-7 V6 has a specially-tuned crossover induction system which contributes to excellent fuel economy for a vehicle of its type and size. 

Common rail turbodiesel

XL-7’s diesel engine is a remarkably efficient turbodiesel unit featuring the latest common rail technology. Output of the 4-cylinder 1997cc 16-valve engine is 107 bhp [108.8ps/80kW] at 4,000rpm. Maximum torque of 199 lb.ft [27.5kg.m/270Nm] is generated at just 1,750rpm for strong and flexible performance and, with a combined fuel consumption figure of 35.3mpg, economy is impressive. 

Putting down the power

For buyers looking for reliable traction on-road and off, XL-7’s four-wheel drive system is particularly capable.  When travelling in a straight line at up to 62 mph [100 km/h], the driver can move between two-wheel drive high and four-wheel drive. A pneumatic actuator automatically engages the front differential and front axle when four-wheel drive is selected so manually locking the wheel hubs is not required. And when in four-wheel drive - and unlike most competitors - two gear ratio ranges are provided: four-wheel drive high for smooth surfaces and four-wheel drive low for treacherous, punishing terrain. 

Accessories

To enable owners to personalise their XL-7 to exactly match their lifestyles and requirements for day-to-day use a comprehensive range of factory approved and warranted accessory options is available.   This range includes:           

·           Spare wheel covers

·              Roof boxes

·           Chrome lamp/mirror trims

·              Side step boards

·           Front guards

·              Roof racks

·           Wood dashboard trim

·              Detachable tow bar

·           Cargo tray

·              Tailgate ‘organiser’
