Expert Quotes:

Sequoia is prone to unpleasant wavy-pavement wallowing with base suspension
Consumer Guide

The second row folds flat, too, helping convert your Sequoia into a reasonably spacious van.
Road & track

the Sequoia feels downright jiggly on rough roads
Car and Driver

enough room in all three rows to make large families and carpoolers happy
Edmunds


The 2012 Sequoia comes standard with seating for eight and provides ample space in the first two rows, while the third row is best for children or small adults. A tilt/telescoping steering wheel makes it easy to find your ideal driving position but the front seats, which are designed for larger Americans, may not offer enough side support for slimmer individuals.

Storage space is ample once the third-row seats are folded in place, which is made easy thanks to a power-folding option. You’ll also find plenty of amenities such as cupholders and small bins, and--for families with young kids--materials that are easy to keep clean.

Build quality and panel gaps, like on most Toyotas, are near the top-end of the class. Our only gripe is that many of the dials and switchgear carry over from the Tundra pickup, which may be fine for a workhorse but feel a little cheap in the Sequoia. The matte-metallic plastic trim on most of the dash may not sit well with everyone, but items like the heated seats, steering wheel controls, and power tilt/slide moonroof help make up for this.

Conclusion

The Sequoia benefits from Toyota’s reputation for build quality though its materials and switchgear could do with some refinement.

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.
