The 2013 Toyota Sequoia gives the impression of a safe and secure vehicle. Admittedly, that's more a natural extension of its sheer size and mass than of objective safety factors. But even when it comes to those, the Sequoia offers a lot.
Stability and traction control systems are included, as well as anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist. 4WD versions of the Sequoia get a special A-TRAC version of the traction control intended to help in low-traction situations.
Among larger traditional SUVs, the Sequoia is a standout for airbag protection. It includes not only dual stage advanced front air bags, seat-mounted side airbags for the driver and front passenger, and roll-sensing side curtain airbags for all three seating rows, but also driver and front passenger knee bags.
Neither the federal government nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have crash-tested the Sequoia.
