Expert Quotes:

“Comfortably accommodates adults in all rows”
Kelley Blue Book

“an alternative to a motorhome, with space for eight family members and every convenience but beds”
Automobile

“inconsistent gaps and color mismatches among a couple parts and panels.”
Edmunds

The 2009 Toyota Sequoia could be considered a small apartment in cities like New York and London, with high-quality furnishings to boot.

Size is the killer application of this Toyota; 2009’s Sequoia has “adult-adequate” third-row seats, ConsumerGuide says, and “enormous door openings aid entry and exit.” Cars.com also likes the third row: “The flat-folding third row's backrest reclines, and the seat can have power operation.” ForbesAutos remarks it’s "notably more spacious and easier to access than GM’s similarly sized Chevrolet Tahoe or GMC Yukon, as well as Ford’s Expedition.”

The 2009 Toyota Sequoia has some upscale interior pieces that reviewers across the Web noted. Road & Track gushes about the “yards upon yards of rich feeling (and smelling) high-quality leather” in the Toyota; 2009’s interior is “a triumph of ergonomics, storage bins and family-friendly conveniences,” Edmunds reports. ForbesAutos says, “the driving position is upright, visibility is excellent, the seats are a bit soft but still supportive.” That said, Edmunds does find fault with “inconsistent gaps and color mismatches among a couple parts and panels.”

Comfort in the new 2009 Toyota Sequoia is also nothing to worry about. The car’s cavernous dimensions make finding storage space a breeze. Motor Trend “found the Toyota very roomy and comfortable,” and Autoblog notes that “there’s storage all over the place for the second- and third-row passengers.” Cars.com says, “The Sequoia can seat up to eight people in its three rows of seats,” and “The second row slides out of the way when you lift a lever, which makes it easy to get to the third-row seats.” ForbesAutos reports that the second row “slides fore and aft to allow maximum legroom in the second row when the third row is unoccupied.” Automobile jokes that it’s “an alternative to a motorhome, with space for eight family members and every convenience but beds.”

Conclusion

The 2009 Toyota Sequoia has the room and quality to double as a high-end apartment in Tokyo.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
