2012 Acura TL Review

The TL’s dramatic styling and breathtaking performance are rivaled only by its stunning technological achievements. Each model boasts an impressive engine: a 280 horse power 3.5-liter VTEC V-6 in the TL while the TL SH All Wheel Drive combines a powerful 305 horse power 3.7-liter VTEC V-6 with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. The new 6-speed Sequential SportShift automatic increases fuel efficiency and saves you money at the pump. The beautiful leather surfaces of the TL’s front seats have you enveloped in comfort from the instant you slide in through the duration of your journey. The Acura Navigation System the centerpiece of the TL Technology Package—is Acura’s most advanced navigation system yet. Now operated by a hard drive and viewed though a full VGA 8-inch screen the system is faster easier to read and more useful than ever before. The TL has even made headlines for earning top safety honors. Acura utilizes Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure to enhance occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes. The 2012 Acura TL – Aggressive yet elegant.
