Just curious. In terms of height, both Alphard and Vellfire almost same.

Do you have any issues with car parks? U need clearance of 2m?

 

I am asking cause I don't find any clear answers after a search. Previously when I had the Q7 V8, the air suspension which is height adjustable saves the day. Now I need to buy back a 7 or 8 seater.

 

So my choices now are:-

 

1. Vellfire 3.5 G

2. Alphard

3. Estima (min priority)

4. R350 (min priority)

5. Sharan

How about Chrysler Grand Voyager, Ford Galaxy and Mazda 8 and Biante? These are all full-sized MPVs.

I thought it's internal same, engine same, and only exterior different. Vellfire is more sporty looking.

Galaxy is good but not a good brand in sg

Mazda 8 considered not bad but still lack of luxury feels

Biante need to say?

if u consider buying a MPV, estima is better.

As ppl carrier, i think Alphard/Vellfire is better than Estima. Alphard/Vellfire is taller than Estima, so easier to get out.

 

Most importantly, don't buy 2.4L.

Yes, easier to get in/out, but also means car is taller, so got more MSCP cannot go in leh...

 

Did you mean don't buy 2.4L Alphard/Vellfire, or don't buy 2.4L Estima?

Sibei no pwr. 1st gen Estima 2.4L. 5 girls + 2 guys + Luggage. No matter how we step on the throttle, it will not go beyond 40km/h.

 

I drove Alphard 3.5L in MY. There is enough torque that not much throttle input is required even when there are 7 adults in it.
