The 2017 Volvo XC60 is an excellent choice for drivers who want a comfortable, spacious, and fuel-efficient luxury compact SUV. Its cabin is luxurious, with top-notch materials that match those in pricier rivals. Cargo space is excellent for the class, even topping the amount of usable space in some luxury midsize SUVs.

Pros
Fuel-efficient, powerful engines
Largest overall cargo volume in the class
Top-notch safety scores

Cons
Below-average reliability ratings
Tricky-to-use infotainment system
Pricier than many competitors

The 2017 Volvo XC60 is a near-luxury contender at near-luxury prices. Its safety might be its biggest strong suit, which it rightly deserves.

The XC60's looks have aged in a hurry—inside and out.

The XC60 feels a step behind others in its class, but we're not sure what to blame

Four adults will fit comfortably in the XC60, with all the Ikea they can handle too.

Volvo has earned—and kept—its reputation as one of the safest automakers on the planet.

The options list is fairly comprehensive, but some good features are bundled in pricey packages.

The 2017 Volvo XC60 powertrain lineup is simpler now, but the results are largely the same.

Pros
Superlative safety
Impressive standard equipment
Good ride
Great front seats

Cons
Not particularly efficient
Aged styling
Leg room is limited in rear

Even though the 2017 Volvo XC60 is beginning to show its age, it's still a competitive compact SUV thanks to its top safety scores, spacious interior and solid performance.

For 2017, the Volvo XC60 simplifies its trim level and feature structure. Last year's 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine has been replaced by a turbocharged four-cylinder and all-wheel drive is available across the lineup.

Despite what you might think about an SUV powered by a small four-cylinder engine, the XC60 T5 should be more than adequate for most drivers. If you're regularly loading it to capacity with people and cargo, we recommend the more powerful T6. Fuel economy suffers slightly, but probably not enough to be a deal-breaker. Regardless of engine choice, the eight-speed transmission delivers smooth shifts and the available all-wheel drive makes it a capable handler in cold weather climates.

Pros
The efficient four-cylinder engines are more powerful than you'd think; top safety scores and integrated booster seats make the XC60 a great choice for families; cargo space is generous; all seats provide long-distance comfort.

Cons
Interior design and infotainment system are beginning to show their age; handling isn't as capable as some newer competitors.

Volvo has officially killed off the five-cylinder engine from its lineup with the introduction of a 2.0-liter turbo-four for the T5 AWD variant of the 2017 Volvo XC60. New 18- and 20-inch alloy wheel designs have also been added. All T6 variants now come standard with all-wheel drive.

The 2017 Volvo XC60 is a compact luxury crossover that slots below the larger seven-passenger XC90. Front-wheel drive comes standard with all-wheel drive optional on all but the T6 AWD and T6 R-Design models on which it’s standard.

Look for a second-generation XC60 to debut in the near future riding on Volvo’s new SPA architecture and possibly add a plug-in hybrid variant.

A front-drive XC60 T6 ended up in last place in a comparison test because it suffered from a rough ride because of the large alloy wheels and an interior that didn’t feel well built compared to its competitors. When we later drove the 2016 XC60 with all-wheel drive, we had a more favorable impression.

Pros
Comfortable seats
Spacious interior
Good safety ratings

Cons
Dated infotainment system
Transmission gets confused
Rough ride with larger alloy wheels

The Sequoia received an updated version of Toyota’s Entune entertainment system for 2016, which featured Connected Navigation and Siri Eyes Free functionality. The Safety and Convenience package was added to the Limited trim, and added blind spot warning, lane change assist and driver’s side memory seat and side mirrors. There are no changes for the 2017 model.

The 2017 Toyota Sequoia is a full-size three-row SUV offered with rear- or four-wheel-drive, with seating for up to eight passengers.

The Sequoia offers a single engine and powertrain, a 5.7-liter V-8 with 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 4.6-liter V-8 was dropped from the lineup in the 2013 model year. While power output is competitive for its class, fuel economy is not, with the Sequoia lagging class leaders by a significant margin. Cargo space is generous, with 18.9 cubic feet behind the third row, 66.6 cubic feet behind the second row, and a voluminous 120.1 cubic feet behind the front seats. The Sequoia can tow up to 7,400 pounds.

The Sequoia shares an assembly plant with the midsize Highlander crossover in Princeton, Indiana

Pros
Generous interior space
Sprightly acceleration
Surprising agility for size

Cons
Numb and over-boosted steering
Exterior styling showing age
Poor fuel economy

The 2017 Toyota Sequoia hasn't kept up with the times, even for a body-on-frame SUV. Look closely at the competition.
The Sequoia has aged well outside, but its oversized interior shapes and controls are nothing to look at.

A muscular V-8 helps the Sequoia accelerate with authority.
Though there's good room for passengers in the first two rows, the Sequoia's interior pales in comparison to rivals.

We don't much full crash test data on the Sequoia, but its lack of automatic emergency braking is a concern.
Though there aren't many especially high tech features, the Sequoia comes well-equipped at the entry level.

At 14 mpg combined, the Sequoia is well off the mark of more modern rivals.

Pros
Effortless V-8 power
Tows like a champ
Comfortable ride

Cons
V-8 is a real guzzler
Interior doesn't feel up to the price
And that price is rather hefty

The Toyota Sequoia is unchanged for 2017.

The 2017 Toyota Sequoia is worth a look if a traditional three-row SUV is in your future. Though it lacks some of the latest tech and safety features, its seating for eight, legitimate off-road and towing capabilities, and substantial cargo room make it a capable rig for doing just about anything.

The current generation Sequoia has been around for nine years now without a redesign. That's a long time in the automotive industry, and it's mostly apparent in the Sequoia's dated infotainment system and lack of the latest driver safety aids such as lane departure warning and forward collision mitigation. And in general, know that other big crossover SUVs can provide similar amounts of interior room to the Sequoia but with superior fuel economy and a better combination of ride comfort and secure handling.

But as traditional SUVs go, the Sequoia still offers a more comfortable ride than many in its class, especially when equipped with the Platinum trim's air suspension. It's also pretty capable off-road thanks to its substantial ground clearance, though obviously this isn't a vehicle you'll want to try to squeeze down a tight, narrow trail. Overall, the Sequoia isn't our top pick for a big three-row SUV, but there are enough positives that it's worth considering.

Pros
Cargo area is one of the largest in this class
For a big SUV, it rides pretty comfortably over bumps
The flexible seating arrangement allows for up to eight passengers
Respectable off-road capability for a big SUV

Cons
Even among V8-powered SUVs, fuel economy is poor
Audio and front central cupholders are hard to reach
Touchscreen is small by 2017 standards
Lacking some of the latest advanced driver aids

The 2017 Toyota Sequoia ranks 4 out of 6 Large SUVs. The 2017 Toyota Sequoia is one of the most affordable SUVs in the class, and it offers more passenger and cargo space than rivals. However, its engine – though strong – is a gas guzzler. The Sequoia is also long overdue for an update, as evidenced by its dated cabin.

The 2017 Toyota Sequoia ranking is based on its score within the Large SUVs category. Currently the Toyota Sequoia has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 50 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

The 2017 Toyota Sequoia is one of the most affordable SUVs in the class, and it offers more passenger and cargo space than rivals. However, its engine – though strong – is a gas guzzler. The Sequoia is also long overdue for an update, as evidenced by its dated cabin

The 2017 Toyota Sequoia offers plenty of cabin and cargo space compared to its rivals, and it's one of the most affordable SUVs in the class. However, the Sequoia hasn’t seen a redesign in almost a decade, and its outdated cabin technology and disappointing interior material quality show its age. Most competitors offer more contemporary interior technology and upscale cabin materials, though they do cost more.

Pros
Good engine power
Expansive seating areas
Above-average cargo volume

Cons
Poor fuel economy
Hard-to-reach controls
Aging interior design
