Suzuki sells about 2 million vehicles a year, alot bigger than people in North america think they are, but number 1 in Japan???? i doubt that????

A small pick-up and a van will make them a real player, 07 xl7 is a great start though, 3.6L...about time!

Suzuki had the #1 selling car in Japan for 4 years in a row, the Wagon R. They also had the title as the #1 selling small car for almost 30 years running.
There are certain cars in certain classes and certain parts of the world, where Suzuki outsell the competition. They were never #1 overall in Japan. They do however have about 30% of the market, and is Japan's 4th largest auto manufacturer.
Can you believe the selling price of a V6 Full load Rav4?
Crazy when compared to the price of the Grand Vitara, another 80 or so horsepower isn't worth almost $9000 more.
When the new XL7 arrives with 250 hp and $5000 less than the RAV4, Suzuki should put a big dent in market.

ok the stretched version of the equinox platform?...? LOL!!!! It looks like a curvy tahoe inside and out. As did the vitara, no doubt it won't sell. Be nice if a small block v8 from impala ss made it here.
The minivan idea is good as long as it's not a twin of the current uplander. As i've said, suzuki should go 2 honda for the minivan and truck platforms. A AURA twin for the verona replacement will be swwweeeeeet .

Hello. I am new to the forum and Im probably posting in the wrong place so Ill apoligize first. I am looking at an 05 xl7 demo that is still on the lot. It has all of the options and only 183 miles on it. It is a 4 wheel drive 7 passenger. It has the remainder of a 7 year 100 K drivetrain warrenty. It has a 36 k bumper to bumper warrenty, and 3 year roadside assistance. beautifull little truck in my opinion and it seems to be the best deal yet. (Ive looked at a kazillion different cars) They want 22,089 and wont go any lower because they say that its allready been marked down 5000. Is this too much and if so how much should I expect to give for one. I really like this truck but I dont know much about Suzukis. thanks

A curvy tahoe??????????????????????, i dont see a tahoe on the outside, ( but would it be a bad thing if it did at those prices?), and in no way does it look like a tahoe on the inside, perhaps you need to take another look!!!!
As far as the v8 goes, jeez, suzuki just got this lovely 250 hp v6, a big step up from that little 2.7L, one step at a time..................

Edmunds has the True Cost to Own numbers very high on the XL - 7. Any ideas why? Scrolling through recent posts I only see timing chain issues on 2001-2003 models. It does not seem to make sense given that the MPG for these cars is much better than other mid-size SUVs.
Also - does anyone know if the middle row has three over the shoulder belts? I haven't been to see one yet, am thinking I will wait for the 07, nice looking car.
