Dude first off all what is your budget?

If it is till 310k than a good option is the LX570.

Or the new Yukon Denali XL. It's for 210k

Well i voted for the Escalade cause it has the looks, features and it's for 245k!
Not bad at all!

That is one weird list. Escalade and Q5 are together on the same list.
The cars you mentioned are in a totally different league when compared to each other (except a few)
First and foremost, do you need 7 seats?

So that means 7 seats aren't a priority
Get the one with the least waiting time

I'd say get an FX or Q5. Both are very very brand new. New shape of the FX started selling here about 2 weeks ago.
Avoid the Prado, new shape next year.
You won't get a Sport Supercharged for less than 300k. Porsche Cayenne GTS is also 300k plus.
Land Cruiser is ugly. FJ Cruiser doesn't suit females much, and the interior is a bit too rugged. And every other peep has one!
Q7 is good but the Q5 looks better.
What about SUVs like the ML and X5?

Eleanor your list is everywhere. I think you should narrow it down to the following to see what will suit you best:

1- price
2- power
3- luxury/comfort

if your budget is 300K the car I THINK would suit you best is the RR and then the cayenne. IMHO Cayenne is so much better in all ways, but again thats my taste I wouldnt know what you would like.

However, If you want to be smart and save some money and get a car thats cheap, powerful, and has luxury/comfort then the FX45. And trust me both you and your sister will love it and enjoy it!!

I felt the same in the cayenne as well, the rear seats are higher up then the front seats. so it makes it kind of cramped up. It's similar seating style to the jeep cherokee.
But hey who gives a shit as long as you dont have to sit in the back hahahaha..
