2011 Acura RL Advance Package

2011 Acura RL Review

(3 Stars)  Competent and comfortable, but no flagship

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The RL is Acura's flagship model and there is not much to ask from Acura after you see all of the advanced options and safety features packed into this passenger vehicle. There is plenty of power for drivers who love that extra edge. The RL has a V-6 engine that is pushing 300 horsepower. This vehicle uses the torque vectoring super handling AWD system that Acura has nicknamed SH-AWD. This powerful handling system give the driver complete control over the RL in any driving condition imaginable.

In 2011 the RL has some new features for buyers including a much anticipated 6-speed automatic transition and boosted fuel economy. The exterior styling is very similar, but it has received a few minor body changes too. There are not really any other competitors in this cars class, unless you consider the Acura TL which offers a similar vehicle at a much lower price tag and what some consumers believe to be a more attractive vehicle. The TL's days may be limited as Acura talks about removing it from their line-up altogether to leave this vehicle to steal the show.
