Suzuki PH Launches 2024 XL7 With Hybrid Power (w/ Specs)

After leaking out in documents filed with the LTO early this month, Suzuki Philippines has officially launched the refreshed XL7. And thankfully, it still comes with a (mild) hybrid system even if it doesn’t quality anymore for perks such as number coding exemption.

For the Philippine market, only one variant is available: the XL7 Hybrid GLX, but it does come in a choice of monotone (P 1,252,000) and two-tone (P 1,262,000) flavors. Colorways available for the monotone are: Magma Gray Metallic, Brave Khaki Pearl, and Snow White Pearl. Meanwhile, for the two-tone, they are: Savanna Ivory Metallic/Cool Black Pearl Metallic and Rising Orange Pearl Metallic/Cool Black Pearl Metallic.

Both variants come with the Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki or the SHVS system. This 12-volt mild hybrid enhances the efficiency of the K15B engine by up to 13 percent by having the ISG and lightweight lithium-ion battery taking over the vehicle’s electrical load. This means the XL7 can extract the most out of the available 105 horsepower and 138 Nm of torque. Also equipped with an Engine Auto Stop Start System, Suzuki says it can do up to 22.03 km/L. The transmission remains a 4-speed automatic.

Communicating its new powertrain, the XL7 Hybrid has a new face and grille helping it exude confidence. The bumpers also happen to integrate underguards which match the side protection moldings. A load-bearing roof rail and 16-inch alloy wheels come as standard.

Inside, the XL7 Hybrid comes with a black interior with silver-metallic door accents. There are new silver accents added to the dashboard and complement features that include ventilated cup holders, front and rear air conditioning, and a 10-inch touchscreen audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

In conjunction with the launch, Suzuki Philippines is offering an exclusive Early Reservation Promo, allowing customers to secure their spot with a minimum deposit of P 5,000 until March 31.

Customers who reserve within this period will enjoy a P 50,000 discount from the total SRP for cash and bank P.O. transactions or a discounted down payment for financing.

  1. When do you plan to update the pricelist of suzuki
    Its been months when they released the jimny 5 door and here it goes again this xl7
    Looks like they dont care.!!!

  2. 2 airbags just like xpander/xpander cross, not safe

    1. Xpander is the 3rd best selling vehicle in the Philippines
      Having multiple airbags doesn't mean the vehicle is already safe as the sturdiness of crash structure and safety cell body of the vehicle are much more important

    2. 6 airbags is definitely miles safer than 2 airbags. Xpander cross at 1.3M with just 2 airbags and with no ADAS clearly overpriced

    3. Sales of the Xpander is still higher than the Avanza
      Avanza,Xenia and Veloz are known for having less safer body structures in order to save costs..3 star ASEAN NCAP rating of the Xenia and Avanza shows how unsafe the vehicle is.
      Kia Carens got 6 airbags in India but only scored 3 stars at GNCAP as the body and crash structure of it is weak.

  3. Mild hybrids are crap.
    They do nothing but only adds to the cost, cimplexity and maintenance of the car.
    Go full hybrid instead.

    1. Mild hybrids are much more cheaper to maintain
      Battery of mild hybrid vehicles cost around 60,000 Pesos only compared to the 300,000 Pesos up to 400,000 battery replacement prices of hybrid vehicles of Toyota.

    2. Mild hybrid is useless, its just a glorified starter and just an additional cost with no benefits.

    3. Wow you nailed it, Very good idea comparing mild hybrid to toyota full hybrid batteries. 🤔🤔🤔...very sensible idea.

  4. Very nice prices and good update
    Looking forward to buy one

  5. 2 airbags, rear drum brakes, 4 speed AT, average to low safety rarings for almost Php1.3M? Spend your money somewhere else.

  6. Suzuki Ertiga and XL7 scored 4 stars at ASEAN NCAP which is a good safety score compared to the 3 star rating of Daihatsu Xenia/Toyota Avanza and 4 star rating of Hyundai Stargazer despite having six airbags and ADAS.
    4 speed automatic transmission is way more reliable than CVT
    CVT ain't cheap to replace (cost around 150,000 Pesos up to 300,000 Pesos to purchase a brand new replacement CVT transmission).

    1. Avanza has 5 star asean ncap 2022 and did not have ncap test 2023. Asean ncap test was just a frontal crash test. Side airbags and curtain airbags definitely make vehicles more more safer in case of side impact or roll over. Modern cvt very reliable and durable. Dinosaur era 4 sped not fuel efficient. Mitsubishi indinesia already ditch xpander 4 sped in favor of cvt.

  7. So paying more for a car that doesn't get the pleasure of exemption the regular ertiga has, that's quite sad...
