  • 2013 Acura TL Special Edition

    The current-generation Acura TL has been around since the 2009 model year and a successor is due soon, most likely badged as a TLX. To help keep interest in the current model alive, Acura is giving plenty of incentive for buyers via the launch of a special edition model. Introduced late in the 2013 model year, the new Acura TL Special Edition is priced from $38,300, including an $895 destination fee. This slots it in just above the base 2013 TL, which is listed from $36,800, including the same $895 destination fee, but it comes with plenty of standard goodies that make it quite the deal. The...

    2012 Acura TL: First Drive

    When it was launched as a 2009 model, the Acura TL was the most extreme definition of Acura's new styling direction. It was a polarizing design, with a brash front end and beak-like silver grille surround. According to Acura marketers, buyers in Miami and New York loved it, but Californians and...

    2012 Acura TL On Sale March 18, Starts From $35,605

    If you're jonesing for some slightly de-beaked Acura TL, you don't have long to wait: the new 2012 version goes on sale on March 18. Unfortunately, apart from a very mild restyle and a new Sequential SportShift six-speed automatic transmission, there's not much new to the TL. Or perhaps that's...

    Video: 2012 Acura TL Unveiling At 2011 Chicago Auto Show

    We aren't huge fans of the facelifted 2012 Acura TL's design, as it looks quite a lot like the last one, though there's a lot to redeem the car once you get past the face. Judging by your comments, you're not all that pleased with it either. Either way, you can watch the official video of its...

  • The current-generation Acura TL's styling has been controversial since its debut a few years ago. In this case, "controversial" is a euphemism for "ugly." It's unfortunate, because the TL is actually a pretty good car, especially TLs with a six-speed manual. Well, the near-universal derision has finally made it up to the styling department, and Acura has made some changes for 2012. The 2012 Acura TL still looks a lot like the 2011, but a few tweaks here and there do help improve its appearance. The biggest changes are, obviously, to the beak-like nose, which has been the focus of the...

    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...

    2012 Acura TL Teased Ahead Of 2011 Chicago Auto Show, Live Webcast Planned

    Updated 2012 Acura TL To Debut at 2011 Chicago Auto Show

    The 2011 Acura TL is an excellent car to drive. It boasts a powerful V-6 engine, it's available with one of the world's best all-wheel drive systems, and the SH-AWD manual transmission model is quite possibly the best sport sedan you can buy for the price. Problem is, it suffers from one of the...

  • 2009 Acura TL

    It's not every day that an automotive first is achieved - the industry is over a century old, after all. So that makes Acura's first-ever sweep of top marks in IIHS and NHTSA safety ratings impressive as a first as well as for the safety of its vehicles. The final vehicle to get the top scores was the new 2009 Acura TL (pictured above). With that, all of Acura's vehicles are now certified as 5-star (NHTSA NCAP) or 'Good' (IIHS) - the top marks possible in the U.S. But there's bound to be at least one asterisk next to the entry in the record books: Acura isn't really a full-line carmaker...
