2012 Toyota Sequoia Styling

7.0
On Styling

The 2012 Toyota Sequoia is about as big as they come, and with a healthy dose of testosterone thrown, this full-size SUV certainly isn’t for the fainthearted. The look may appear somewhat cartoonishly musclebound for some though it beats the almost anonymous styling of most minivans.

Standout features include an imposing chrome grille, tall hood, and high beltline. Adding to the musclebound look are pumped fenders, chunky door handles, chromed mirrors, and rippled sheetmetal. At the rear, a wide door-opening angle provides easy access to the cabin and child seat installation.

The 2012 Toyota Sequoia has a pumped-up on steroids look that will appeal to most males, though some may find it just a tad too macho.

The Sequoia will happily go toe-to-toe with rivals such as the Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Expedition, or Nissan Armada in terms of styling, and it's one of the most aerodynamic thanks to its relatively low 0.36 drag coefficient.

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 or overwrought. That aside, the dash is very functional, with a very wide center console and chunky design incorporating simple, large controls and displays.
