The Avalon comes in five different trim levels: XLE, XSE, Touring, TRD and Limited. All but the Touring and TRD are available with the hybrid drivetrain. 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/Android Auto connectivity, Toyota's Entune App Suite, LED headlights and taillights, heated power exterior mirrors, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a 7-inch multi-information display for the driver, radar controlled dynamic cruise control and a smart key.
The XSE Nightshade adds black exterior trim finishes, a piano black grille, a moonroof, 19-inch black painted machined-finish wheels, HomeLink garage door transmitter, paddle shifters, wireless device charging, a multifunction steering wheel and aluminum interior trim and pedal covers.
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, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, power tilting and power telescoping 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 chrome wheels. It also gets genuine leather seating surfaces and a genuine wood interior trim.
The TRD Avalon has a sportier look with black painted side skirts, black 19-inch wheels, red painted brake calipers, sport exhaust and a sport-tuned suspension.
The Toyota Avalon comes fully loaded with standard safety equipment like Lane Departure Alert, Blind Spot Monitoring, Pre-Collision System, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Pre-Collision System with pedestrian detection and Vehicle Sway Warning.
