Price differential is only about $5K.(surprised ?)
I would prefer the Estima as its sleeker and less height problem.The shape has been around for more than 9 years.
Alphard/Vellfire 2.5 has just recently been introduced.Basic X edition (8 seater) also has 2 powered side door and 2 sunroof.No power tail boot though.
Its has 7 airbags vs 2 in Estima. My only concern is that it may be too big for wife to drive around.
Surprisingly as both around 2.4/2.5 litre,running cost are about the same.
I am for the Vellfire while wife prefer the Estima.
