What is a Trim Level and Which One is Right for You?

If you’re looking to buy a car, you’ve probably noticed that there are a lot of options out there. Even if you’ve narrowed it down to a specific make and model—a Toyota Camry or a Honda Civic, for example—you’ll still have to decide on what trim level you want. But what is a trim level, anyway, and how do you decide which one is right for you?

A trim level is a set of features that come on a car. Generally, models are broken up into multiple trim levels, each with a particular set of features. “Higher” trim levels typically cost more but include additional or upgraded features while “lower” trim levels have fewer features and are more affordable.

Automakers use different names for various trim levels. For example, if you’re interested in a Chevrolet, the LTZ trim will always include more than the LS. For Honda, the EX trim will always be higher than the LX.

Different trim levels aren’t necessarily “better” or “worse.” Rather, having the option of multiple trim levels allows you to find the balance of price and features that work best for you.
