If you are looking for a new sedan, you may have come across the 2019 Toyota Avalon. As such, you might already know about the different trim levels; XLE, XSE, Limited, and Touring (not including the hybrid options). Finding out exactly what these trims include can be a bit difficult, so we’ve decided to compare the base trim against the top trim in an effort to see how much they differ.
We hesitate to say one trim has an advantage over the other. Both are excellent vehicles that give their driver a plethora of comfort and convenience features. It just boils down to what types of features you are looking for. Of course, if there are some features that you want, but don’t see on the base trim, then you can always look at the two other trims that come before the Touring. The XSE and Limited trims have more comfort and convenience features than the XLE, though not as much as the Touring. So, if you see features that you don’t really want on the Touring, you could get a trim that is below it. Again, it all boils down to a matter of deciding what features you want on your vehicle.
Now, without further ado; the 2019 Toyota Avalon XLE vs the 2019 Toyota Avalon Touring.
2019 Toyota Avalon XLE
2019 Toyota Avalon Touring
|No||Advanced Safety Package available?||Yes|
|22/32/26 mpg||Fuel economy||22/31/25 mpg|
|14.5 gal||Fuel capacity||15.8 gal|
When it comes to safety, it seems like Toyota vehicles are the ones to look at. On top of all the standard safety features, you can also get the Advanced Safety Package that has things like Bird’s Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan, and Rear Cross-Traffic Braking that are available for the Touring. However, this package is not available on the XLE trim.
Seating is fairly simple. The XLE has a leatherette fabric while the Touring has that same fabric, plus sueded microfiber as well.
The XSE does have better gas mileage than the Touring,however, the Touring has a larger fuel tank than the XLE, so you can actually find yourself going farther in the Touring than in the XLE. But, if you are concerned about getting as many miles as you can out of your vehicle, then you may want to go with the XLE.
