2011 Acura TL Sedan

2011 Acura TL Review

(4 Stars)  Best sampled in 6MT guise

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
After four generations of molding, fine tuning and rediscovering what a mid-sized luxury vehicle should be, the Acura TL has brought another award winning passenger vehicle to the public. The TL has almost as much power as its bigger brother the RL with only 20 horsepower less, the 280 horsepower V-6 engine seems to be more than enough for this smaller model. If you opt for the performance package you can bump your engine up to a 305 HP engine and add all wheel drive to this sleek little car. Starting at right around $35,000 this vehicle is what many believe should be considered the flagship model from the Honda company Acura.

This is definitely the sportiest and most well equipped models from Acura. The TL comes standard with weather information, gps navigation and even offers real time traffic reports to keep the driver on track even if there are closed roads. The very roomy open space on the interior of this vehicle offers make it feel much larger than it is and is reminiscent of the Honda Accord styling.
