The four big flat-glass displays of the Collins Pro Line 21 system are the obvious change to the XLS+ cockpit, but Cessna also made many other refinements including a new tilted subpanel, a change to on/off lighted buttons to control many systems, and a more logical system control arrangement.

The new cabin sidewall design allows room for passenger's outboard elbow so the seat can be wider without intruding on the aisle.

A two-place divan located in the forward cabin just inside the door is standard, though several cabin floor plans are available.

The airplane flown for this report was the second Plus model delivered. In addition to standard Pro Line 21 integrated avionics system with four flat-glass displays, it was equipped with the optional second FMS and HF comm radio plus several cabin options. The options added only 91 pounds to the standard weight, and represent a typical Plus. All data here is from the airplane manuals and represents standard day conditions at maximum weight, unless noted.
