Expert Quotes:

this thing is big. Really big.”
Road & Track

The overall shape is kind of warthog-ish to our eye
Autoblog

“triumph of ergonomics, storage bins, and family-friendly conveniences”
Edmunds

With its huge, imposing chrome grille and tall hood and flanks, plus its flared fenders, chunky door handles, chromed mirrors, and super-sized cues all around, the 2010 Toyota Sequoia is almost cartoonish in appearance from the outside. Inside, a matte-metallic plastic trim flows down from the gauge area and covers part of the center console, which some might find a bit odd. Overall, the dash is very functional, with a very wide, multicompartment center console and chunky design incorporating simple, large controls and displays.

Few reviewers have much positive to say about the exterior of the Sequoia. Road & Track comments that the first impression of the Toyota Sequoia is likely to be its sheer size. Autoblog can't quite get past the Sequoia's tremendous size, even though they do admit there's a purpose for a vehicle of these dimensions. The Sequoia "definitely deserves whatever size-related superlatives you can dream up," contends the reviewer, later calling the shape as "kind of warthog-ish to our eye." Autoblog continues: "you can argue form following function if it helps take the sting out of parking this ugly duckling between an Expedition and a Denali."

Interior styling for the 2010 Toyota Sequoia carries over from the Tundra, and it’s a source of controversy. Motor Trend points to the “overwrought dash with questionable ergonomics,” while Cars.com matter-of-factly describes the "recessed gauges and sweeping silver-colored trim stretching from the instrument cluster down to the center console gear selector.”

Conclusion

The 2010 Toyota Sequoia is big and burly to the max on the outside, but not everyone likes the look; on the inside, it might be a little overstyled.

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.
