Hi all,

I don't really have a way to test drive right now but was wondreing if the XLE is more comfortable than the XSE?

I wan't a comfortable ride and don't want to pay more for the XSE if it rides worse than the XLE.

Thanks!

The XLE has a more comfortable ride than the XSE, the biggest differentiator being the tires. The XLE has a significant 1" thicker sidewall to cushion bumps and noise (4.7" versus 3.7"), in addition to a "sport tuned suspension", which can only mean firmer settings. If ride comfort is priority, it's clearly the XLE.

Thanks for the info. So it seems the XSE although I like the looks better has a rougher ride. I'm assuming it's probalby still pretty comfortable either way.

The Limited or Touring would be great but I'd only buy one if I got an amazing deal. It's just too much.

Regrets happen when assumptions are made - XSE might be comfortable for you, it might not, it's a personal thing. Limited splits the difference between the XLE and XSE in regards to ride comfort. Happy shopping 😀

I’m coming from a new Tacoma and just thought the ride was too jarring and stiff.
Right now I’m stuck between choosing between the Camry XSE V6 fully loaded or the Avalon XSE.

XSE is sport tuned so I would expect a more stiff ride..look at a xle or limited if going for comfort....and Camry in my option is not an option over the Avalon

Toyota's "sport" is still soft compared to 95% of other Sport tuned cars out there.

But there is still a difference in the tires, correct?
Wheels yes, 19 vs 18". but wheels can be changed very easy and cheaply. im going to get 18" wheels later this eyar to get rid of the "harsh" ride over cracks and small bumps and rough road. Sidewall is what makes the biggest difference for that

and? so buy 17" lol. im going with 18" since i still want handling and going to 18" you gain a good amount of sidewall.
dont get stuck on what a car comes with stock. wheels and tires are the easiest thing to change on a car. and easiest way to change how a car rides and handles. even more then suspension.
