Questions and Answers

GLX, GLS, SE, SI, LXI, What's It Mean?

Q. Dear Sir, I would like to know more about some technical phrases related to automotive models such as: GLX, GLS, SE, SEK, SI, XI, LXI. Would you please lead me how can I find about them.


GLX, GLS, SE, SI, LXI, What's It Mean?


Those designators refer to the trim level of the particular make and model of vehicle and are not the same for all makes and models. They don't necessarily stand for anything, just the trim level.

Usually GLE means Grand Luxury Edition, LE is Luxury Edition, SE is Sport Edition etc. But anyone can hang a couple of letters on the back of a model name and it can mean whatever they want it to mean.
