The "refined" 2012 Acura TL just hit the stage at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show, and we've got the live shots from its debut. Largely a carry-over from last year's model, the mid-cycle refresh brings some minor tweaks, but unfortunately doesn't ditch the funky, chunky grille.

Powered by a 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter engine and scoring 29 mpg on the highway, with a manual transmission still available on the SH-AWD model, the new TL will please those that don't mind the beaky face. Full details and specs on the 2012 TL will be released shortly, but for now, you can see the changes for yourself.
