Expert Quotes:

Not rated

Four or five stars, frontal impact; four stars, rollover

“Safety features abound, all standard”
Car and Driver

A full set of crash-test results aren't available on the 2010 Toyota Sequoia, but it does get a five-star rating for driver-side front-impact protection, along with four stars for the front passenger from NHTSA.

The 2010 Sequoia also comes with all the expected safety equipment, including electronic stability control, side, and side curtain airbags. The Sequoia’s height and sheer size, paired with tough outward visibility, make it cumbersome to maneuver, so you might be at a disadvantage versus a smaller, nimbler vehicle in avoiding an accident in the first place.

The optional navigation system on the Sequoia includes a backup camera, but remarks, "you can't get the feature as a lower-priced, stand-alone option without navigation, as you can on the Tundra and smaller Highlander SUV. Disappointing."

According to Car and Driver, “the Sequoia delivers, starting with standard electronic stability control and roll-sensing side curtain airbags for all three rows.”

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.
