2017 Toyota Avalon XLE Plus vs 2017 Toyota Avalon XLE Premium
When looking at the differences between the XLE Plus and the XLE Premium, immediately you will notice that the XLE Premium gets an Entune Premium Audio system that comes with integrated navigation and an app suite while the XLE Plus gets an Entune Audio Plus system with connected navigation only. The big contrast there is that the connected navigation goes through an app on your smartphone while the integrated navigation comes right from your Entune system.
Other differences include driver’s seat and outside mirrors memory systems on the XLE Premium and an extra 12V auxiliary power outlet in the eBin in the XLE Plus. The XLE Premium also comes standard with the Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging station. If safety is your main concern, you will be pleased to know that most of the safety features found on the XLE Premium are also found on the less expensive XLE Plus, including Toyota Safety Sense P and the Star Safety System. For even more peace of mind, the XLE Premium comes standard with a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
