I got Sienna due to space. Actually does what is made for really good. The X5 is just small for what we need. In terms of quality, dynamics etc. Sienna is absolute POS of a vehicle.

The non-turbo 2.5 was quite weak, but the 2.5 turbo is suitable. Audi A4 Quattro (new) was the most unimpressive car we tested, especially for price. Interior was nice enough, but it just didn't scream $50k car at all. CPO 430i Gran Coupe was 2nd favorite, but the Mazda interior and seats were better. Mazda also has a spare tire, which is a big plus. Yes, spare can be added to 430i trunk, but then there is little room left. I had to add spare tire to my E90 sedan, and it takes up a fair amount of trunk space.
