Acura's mid-size luxury sport sedan, the TL, was completely redesigned in 2009, and for 2010, relatively minor changes have been made, led by the addition of an available 6-speed transmission. This is the first manual transmission to be offered with the SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system, and its 110 pounds lighter than the SportShift automatic, resulting in better steering response, acceleration and braking. Royal Blue has been discontinued, and Umber leather interior is only available with White Diamond Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl and Mayan Bronze Metallic exterior paint.
Distinctive styling; roomy interior; ride quality; high-tech features
Thanks to its aggressive styling, the new TL stands out in its class; its two separate models cater separately to comfort-oriented buyers and performance enthusiasts. And although prices are not especially low, the sum of technology features that the TL offers is better than most other mid-size luxury cars, and as a result, its resale value has been impressive.
