You have a keen eye, and you’ve noticed some Toyota Avalons making rounds in Corpus Christi. You can’t help but wonder what your trim options are when you see one of these roomy sedans driving around. The 2018 Toyota Avalon has five trim levels. While each one offers a comfortable ride, excellent fuel economy, and lots of features, there are some differences worth exploring.
Toyota Avalon XLE and XLE Plus
The Toyota Avalon XLE is the base model, but it feels like it belongs on the upper end of a lineup. The 3.5-liter V6 engine is a powerhouse that delivers 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque, and the 17-inch alloy wheels make a statement. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather, and the keyless entry and ignition make you feel like you’re driving in luxury. It also has a rearview camera, Bluetooth, voice controls, and an impressive eight-speaker audio system.
Toyota’s Safety Sense package also comes standard with this trim. This package includes forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and more.
It’s also really roomy, so you could play super parent for the day and take all the kids and their friends to the Texas State Aquarium.
The XLE Plus is essentially the XLE with two very cool extra features. First, there’s the sunroof. Imagine spending the day at the Padre Island National Seashore and then driving home with the sunroof down. Add in the auto-dimming rearview mirror, and you’re all set for some fun in the sun.
If you need a little something extra, check out the XLE Premium. With the help of navigation, you can drive all over the country without worries. Plus, it has a nine-speaker audio system, so you can jam out to your favorite tunes. The wireless smartphone charging pad is really cool, and the driver-seat memory setting means you don’t have to get mad when your spouse adjusts your seat.
Driving in Texas can feel like driving around a racetrack, so it makes sense to get a vehicle with a sport-tuned suspension and 18-inch wheels. That’s what you’ll get with the Touring. On top of that, it has LED taillights and headlights. It even has some unique interior accents.

The Limited trim has the same wheels and suspension as the Touring trim. It also has auto-dimming side mirrors, ambient lighting in the cabin, upgraded leather upholstery, and so much more. It even has an 11-speaker audio system. This vehicle basically has the best of everything, all inside one sleek package.
