2012 Toyota Sequoia Comfort & Quality

7.0
Comfort & Quality

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.

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

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.
