Expert Quotes:

“Standard...side curtain airbags for all three rows”

“Safety features abound, all standard”
Car and Driver

Five stars, driver front impact; four stars, passenger front impact

Size is generally associated with safety, and in the 2009 Toyota Sequoia, you would expect to be well protected in an accident. Those expectations are met in this Toyota; 2009’s Sequoia gets good crash-test ratings and an excellent assortment of safety features.

The engineers and experts at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) find strength in the latest SUV from Toyota; 2009’s Sequoia scores a perfect five stars for protecting the driver in front impacts, and passenger ratings come in at a respectable four stars. One worry in such a large car is the risk of rollover, but NHTSA gives the Sequoia four stars here as well—quite an accomplishment for a car so tall.

Car and Driver says that when it comes to safety, “the Sequoia delivers, starting with standard electronic stability control and roll-sensing side curtain airbags for all three rows.” Cars.com also points to the rest of the standard equipment on the Toyota; 2009’s Sequoia SUV has standard “antilock brakes with brake assist...and an electronic stability system with traction control.”

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.
