2011 Toyota Sequoia Comfort & Quality

7.0
On Comfort & Quality
There's nothing to gripe about with respect to seating space in the 2011 Toyota Sequoia; the first two rows are roomy and the seats are proportioned generously, for larger Americans. The only complaint is that in those front perches, slim frivers might not find any side support. The third row is only for smaller adults, as is typical in this class, and those who ride back there have to be willing to contort a bit for entry and exit.

There isn't a lot of cargo space behind the third row, so you'll be folding the third row quite a bit; and the power-folding option makes expanding it a breeze.

Most of the interior design and controls carry over from the big Tundra pickup, which isn't necessarily a good thing, as the Tundra has been criticized for being too plasticky. Upholstery isn't a standout either in a class where interior appointments often parallel those of luxury vehicles, but there are copious cup holders and many small bins. Ride quality isn't top-notch either here; the suspension can soak up minor blemishes and major issues like railroad tracks but seems to get the jitters about choppy pavement surfaces. As with some other trucks of this type, the situation probably improves with a load of passengers.

The interior of the Sequoia is vast and seating is comfortable for the first two rows; but materials, ride, and refinement could use some improvement.
