7
Audi Q55$54k as configured. The VW/Audi diesel emissions cheating makes all their MPG numbers suspect. Hard to put a rear-facing child seat on either side (fits ok in the middle).$42k537.8"183.6"65.3"8.2"23/27

BMW X35$53k as configured. Saw one. Cargo area looked too small (roughly same as RAV4). A little more expensive than other good options. BMW has a decent free maintenance program according to https://static.ed.edmunds-media.com/unversioned/img/pdf/free.vehicle.maintenance.programs/free.vehicle.maint.5.pdf , worth about $2,800 over the lifetime of the vehicle.$40k528.5"183.6"65"22/29no

16
Buick Envision7$49k for baller configuration. More than I would want to spend when we know we'd be happy with the Nissan and Subaru options and they're cheaper. Only been around since 2014 (or later). Torque vectoring new as of 2017 (though it's made by a manufacturer who has been making it for other companies for some time). Sat in it. Felt nice! I was surprised. Trunk space seemed decent. Interesting-but-possibly-irrelevatn: Maybe the only car on this list that's made in China. GM has been making cars in China for a while, just not selling them in the US.$34k530.5"183.7"72"66.8"21/27some

Lexus RX Hybrid6Pricey. $58K as configured. More expensive than other good options. The hybrid probably doesn't make sense. Would take a while to earn your money back from the added cost. also it's heavier, so handles worse.$53k530.5"192.5"75"68"8.2"31/28no

Nissan Rogue7$36k for fully loaded, two row, AWD hybrid. Biggest problem: We prefer a bigger trunk. Pretty decent. Not a great amount of room. According to Alex on Autos: Great ride, meh handling. Great fuel economy. Much superior traction compared to RAV4 hybrid. Rear middle side is fairly narrow. Pretty quiet interior. Great choice. Hybrid is a decent choice... all electric at low speeds. Brand has historically had average reliability. Underwhelming power. Rear seats barely adjust (just vertical and reclined).
