2020 Toyota Sequoia Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.4

The 2020 Toyota Sequoia looks and feels outdated compared to its competitors. The cabin isn't all that stylish, and there are low-grade materials such as hard plastics that make it feel a bit cheap. On the bright side, there are three rows of comfortable seats with ample room for adults, and the Sequoia has above-average cargo capacity. The infotainment system receives some nice updates for 2020, but it still feels behind the times.

  • "The upright dash is truck-like and starting to show its age." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The cheap-looking plastics and gaudy controls continue to date the Sequoia's cabin." -- Car and Driver
  • "When it comes to cabin materials, the Sequoia is outclassed by its rivals. We don't doubt the durability, but the oversized knobs, pulls and handles, and hard-touch plastic make it feel more like a Tundra pickup and less like a more affordable Lexus. Toyota's indifference to keeping the Sequoia fresh is obvious." -- Edmunds (2019)

Seating

The Sequoia seats eight people in its standard configuration and seven with the optional second-row captain's chairs. Cloth upholstery and an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat come standard. For installing child safety seats, there are three complete sets of LATCH connectors for the second-row bench seat.

Leather upholstery, heated front seats, ventilated front seats, heated second-row captain's chairs, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a six-way power-adjustable passenger seat, and reclining third-row seats are available.

Unlike some three-row SUVs, the Sequoia provides enough head- and legroom for adults to ride up front, in the middle row, or all the way in the back. The seats are comfortable and reasonably supportive, but opinions are split over how easy it is to access the third-row seats.

  • "Thankfully, passenger space is plentiful, with comfortable legroom in all three rows. Likewise, the third row accepts adult frames without punishment." -- Car and Driver
  • "The Toyota Sequoia SUV is a true 8-seater, with a 3rd-row seat that will accommodate adults and is easily reached, thanks to big rear doors and sliding 2nd-row seats. The 3-passenger 2nd-row bench seat allows individual sections to slide fore-and-aft. and also fold flat. Alternatively, you can elect to have 2nd-row captain's chairs, which reduce total seat count to seven but are a treat for those in the middle row." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The Sequoia's front seats are about what you'd expect: wide and largely devoid of contour, but adequately supportive for longer trips. The 40/20/40-split second-row seat has plenty of room for adults, and it slides and reclines to accommodate various physiques, though we give the comfort edge to the available second-row captain's chairs. The 3-person reclining third row is reasonably adult-friendly as well -- once you're situated, that is. Simply getting back there is the issue, as access is rather awkward via the Sequoia's elongated rear door and flip-forward second-row chair." -- Autotrader

Interior Features

Standard features in the Sequoia include tri-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, and the Entune infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, an eight-speaker audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, three USB ports, Bluetooth, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. Available features include a 12-speaker audio system, a 14-speaker JBL audio system, a rear-seat Blu-ray entertainment system, and navigation.

The Sequoia's infotainment system receives a number of updates for 2020, including a larger standard touch screen and the addition of standard smartphone connectivity options like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The center-stack controls are a long reach from the driver's seat, and despite the upgrades for 2020, the infotainment system still feels less modern than what rivals offer.

Standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, lane change assist, front and rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. Some of these are part of the Toyota Safety Sense P suite of technology. No optional safety features are available.

  • "The cabin is very dated in appearance, quality, functionality and infotainment offerings. The stretch to some controls from the driver seat can be humorous -- good luck tuning the radio without a co-pilot." -- Autotrader
  • "The bigger-is-better knobs and conspicuous buttons are undeniably functional, though. Still, it notably skips modern features that are available on most rivals. These omissions include a heated steering wheel, head-up display, and massaging front seats. People who want a durable interior devoid of superfluous options will appreciate the Sequoia. Most everyone else will not. " -- Car and Driver
  • "Dials are massive, and above them is a center screen for infotainment, but the Sequoia lacks some of the latest tech that's readily available in its Ford and GM rivals." -- Kelley Blue Book

Cargo

The Sequoia gives you 18.9 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats up, 66.6 cubic feet with the third row folded down, and 120.1 cubic feet with the second and third rows collapsed. Few other large SUVs that offer that kind of cargo space.

The second- and third-row seats fold completely flat, giving you a level load floor and helping you maximize the available cargo space. There's lots of small-item storage space throughout the cabin. A power liftgate and power-folding third-row seats are available.

  • "The Sequoia held a healthy amount of carry-on luggage behind the third row and with rear seats stowed. This is noteworthy because the Toyota doesn't have an extended version for increased cargo capacity as some rivals such as the GMC Yukon XL and the Ford Expedition Max. " -- Car and Driver
  • "Utility is in the Sequoia's wheelhouse. Cargo space is among the largest in its class, helped by two rows of fold-flat seats. A power liftgate enhances the ability to stuff the Sequoia full of gear." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "Cargo space is a Sequoia specialty. There's 18.9 cu ft. behind the third row (that's roughly a Ford Taurus trunk), 66.6 cu ft. behind the second row, and a gargantuan 120.1 cu ft. with all the rear seats folded." -- Autotrader (2016)
