2016 Toyota Avalon Trim Comparison near Glen Carbon, IL

Luxury on Every Trim

You don’t have to pay for the luxury badging to a get a well-equipped, deluxe sedan: the 2016 Avalon proves that. Right from the get-go, this full-size sedan starts strong and only improves from there.To prove it, Newbold Toyota has put together the 2016 Toyota Avalon trim comparison near Glen Carbon, IL. Let’s begin!

Toyota Avalon XLE

Toyotas are pretty well known for coming with a plethora of awesome features, and the “base” XLE trim will not disappoint you there. You’ll rarely have to actually use your key, thanks to the Smart Key System1, on the driver’s door and trunk which allows you to enter your car as long as the key is within three feet of the vehicle. Depress the push-button start to fire up the 3.5-liter V6 engine capable of generating 268 horsepower that’s dying to hit the road. Wrap your fingers around the leather-trimmed tilt/telescopic steering wheel after making sure that your 8-way power-adjustable leather-trimmed seat with power lumbar support is positioned just so – and you’re living in the lap of luxury.

The EntuneTM Audio Plus with Connected Navigation App2 includes the EntuneTM  Multimedia Bundle3 and can be controlled with advanced voice recognition4 while cruising down I-70 or using the 7-inch full-color high-resolution touchscreen for quick inputs. We’re all pretty attached to our tech these days, and the Avalon is well aware. Use the eBinTM storage which boasts two 12V power outlets, an auxiliary audio jack, and USB port4.

Toyota Avalon XLE Plus 

The XLE Plus is next up in our 2016 Toyota Avalon trim comparison near Glen Carbon, IL. It adds on just a few extra features like a power tilt/slide moonroof with a sliding sunshade and adds the front passenger door onto the Smart Key System1. Get rid of your unseemly garage door opener and use the HomeLink®5 universal transceiver instead.

Toyota Avalon XLE Premium

The XLE Premium Plus, if you haven’t guessed the pattern yet, adds on just a few more special features, such as EntuneTM App Suite6, which gives you access to dozens of apps on your mobile device. The 7-inch screen is now capable of a split-screen display and enjoy a 3-month subscription of SiriusXM® Satellite Radio All Access7 complimentary. A Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging8 station gets added to your lovely eBinTM and you can feel even safer driving changing lanes thanks to the Blind Spot Monitor9 and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert10.

Toyota Avalon Touring  

The Touring trim of the Avalon was made for long drives. Its comfort-tuned suspension will have miles rolling by without a bump, jostle, or jolt. The LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights will illuminate your path, day or night, as you cruise along on 18-inch dark gray painted alloy wheels11.

Toyota Avalon Limited

Make way for the top-of-the-line, ladies and gents. Topping the telematics system off with 11-speaker JBL® GreenEdgeTM audio system, including a subwoofer and amplifier, everything your play on HD RadioTM12 and Pandora®13 will sound like it’s live. The white ice interior ambient lighting will gently welcome you inside after a long night, and the three-zone automatic climate control means everyone will be happy with the temperature. Rain-sensing washer-linked variable intermittent windshield wipers will do all the work for you if the rain starts pelting down, and the HID Quadrabeam headlights will see you through any  inclement weather.
