It’s a known fact by now that the Honda BR-V- and Toyota Rush-rivaling Suzuki XL7 will be launched here in the Philippines in March. As we inch closer to that launch, more details of the mini-SUV have been surfacing.
The latest scoop we’ve received from our source is the pricing: The Suzuki XL7 may be priced at P1,060,000 once it enters the market. This isn’t official just yet, but that’s a proper ballpark figure given the price tags of the aforementioned BR-V (starts at P1.035 million) and Rush (starts at P968,000).
We’ve also been told that the XL7 will indeed pack a 1.5-liter four-cylinder K15B gasoline engine, and this mill is capable of 103hp and 138Nm of torque. An automatic transmission will be available; for those who prefer a stick-shift, you’ll have to wait a bit more to find out if a manual gearbox will be offered.
Our previous specs check out, too: The Suzuki XL7 measures at 4,450mm long, 1,775mm wide, and 1,710mm tall. It has a minimum ground clearance and turning radius of 200mm and 5.2 meters, respectively, and a wheelbase of 2,740mm.
That’s all we have at the moment, and again, these aren’t the official price and specs just yet—watch this space if you’re waiting for more details yourself. For now, tell us what you think about 2020 Suzuki XL7 in the comments.
