The Acura TL is a mid-size sports sedan manufactured by Acura. The Acura TL for sale in 1995 to supplant the Acura Vigor and was rebadged for the Japanese-market from 1996 to 2000 as the Honda Inspire and from 1996 to 2004 as the Honda Saber.
The Acura TL was Acura’s best-selling model until it was outsold most recently by the MDX since 2007, and it has ranked as the second best-selling luxury sedan in the United States behind the BMW 3 Series. Four generations of the Acura TL have been produced to date, with the latest fourth generation TL premiering in 2008 as a 2009 model which is not sold in Japan.
The Acura TL has traditionally been one of the better choices available for a midsize luxury sport sedan. Though the Acura TL typically does not deliver the excitement or prestige of competing European sedans, it counters with exceptional value and above-average durability and reliability.
The third-generation Acura TL was available for model years 2004-2008. This Acura TL was distinguished by its chiseled exterior styling, firm suspension tuning, powerful V6 and impressive level of standard equipment. Both a six-speed manual transmission and a five-speed automatic with shift paddles were available. Two versions of the TL were offered in this era: base and the Acura TL Type S.
The prevailing trend is for cars to get larger and more powerful with each redesign, and such was the case with the Acura TL newest makeover. The current (fourth) generation TL debuted for the 2009 model year. There have been no major changes since, though the manual transmission wasn’t offered in the TL’s debut year.
The current model is the largest Acura TL yet and offers more interior room; a powerful V6 engine and available all-wheel drive help compensate for the added curb weight. For a majority of shoppers, an Acura TL used from this era will provide a good mix of fun, comfort and convenience at a reasonable price. Changes during the model cycle were few, but the Acura TL received a midlife freshening for 2007, including minor exterior and interior styling tweaks and an upgraded navigation system.
Today’s Acura TL also boasts a host of gadgets and gizmos that represent the latest in automotive technology. Thanks to this year’s refreshed exterior styling and improved fuel efficiency, the 2012 Acura TL is a strong choice for a midsize luxury sedan.
The 2012 Acura TL gets revised front-end styling, a six-speed automatic transmission, improved fuel efficiency, an upgraded navigation system and a quieter freeway ride. The 2012 Acura TL is again available in two distinct flavors. The base model offers the refined ride, big cabin and a full helping of the latest bells and whistles that will satisfy most. You’ll need to look to the Buick LaCrosse, Hyundai Genesis and Lexus ES 350 for something comparable.
Driving enthusiasts will likely find the more powerful and sharper-handling Acura TL SH-AWD more appealing. Blessed with an athletic chassis and all-wheel drive, this 2012 Acura TL can hang with smaller rivals such as the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Infiniti G37 and Lexus IS 350 on a challenging, curvy road.
