The Avalon comes in four different trim levels: XLE, XSE, Touring and Limited. All but the Touring is available with the hybrid drivetrain, which adds just $1,000 to the price of the car. Being a fairly luxurious vehicle, the base XLE still comes very nicely equipped. Standard items include a 9-inch touchscreen, a blind spot monitoring system, a rear cross-traffic alert system, Apple CarPlay connectivity, Toyota's Entune App Suite, LED headlights and taillights, heated power exterior mirrors, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch multi-information display for the driver, radar controlled dynamic cruise control and a smart key.
The XSE adds smoked headlights, a piano black grille, a moonroof, 19-inch black painted wheels, heated front seats, paddle shifters, a multifunction steering wheel, aluminum interior trim and pedal covers and an auto dimming rearview mirror.
The Touring trim concentrates on driver comfort and entertainment for those long road trips. It has nicer headlights and taillights, a memory function for the mirrors, a 14-speaker sound system with a 1,200W amplifier, ventilation in the front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel and a 10-inch color Head-Up Display.
The top-of-the-line Limited is equipped somewhat similarly to the Touring, though it rides a little better on slightly smaller 18-inch wheels. It also gets genuine leather seating surfaces and a woodgrain trimmed interior.
