2010 Acura TL Tech Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, Test Drive
Meet Acura's previous best selling model, the TL. Hit with the ugly stick for the 2009 model year, it severely hampered sales of Acura once best selling luxury sedan in the segment. The 2012 refreshed helped to bring buyers back into showrooms however, with a next generation due for 2014. Acura really needs another home run, similar to what it got in 2004 with the new TL and TSX at the time.

2012 Acura TL SH-AWD Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/acura/tl/2012/ The 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD is not your normal everyday luxury sedan. This car features a 305 horsepower V-6 engine, 6-speed manual transmission, and Super Handling-All Wheel Drive. The TL falls right in the middle of Acura's luxury car line-up and offers the perfect blend of performance and luxury plus it looks so sexy. The base price for the 2012 Acura TL is $35,705 with the top of the line model starting at $45,185. The 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD is powered by a 3.7 liter V-6 engine featuring VTEC and a high flow Exhaust system. This engine makes 305 horsepower and 273 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 18 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway with the automatic transmission. The entry level models get a 3.5 liter V-6 engine that puts out 280 horsepower and 254 lb-ft. of torque. Besides being less expensive, this engine gets much better gas mileage at 20 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. The interior of the 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD is quite comfortable. The seats produced by Acura may just be the best in the business. The driver seat is 10-way adjustable while the passenger is an 8-way adjustable unit. Both front seats are heated and you can opt for the Advance Package which adds cooling. The rear seats are spacious and can comfortably accommodate 3 passengers. Other interior features are the dual-mode climate control, Bluetooth, Push-Button Start, optional ELS Stereo Surround System, and Navigation just to name a few. The Acura TL is one of the IIHS Top Safety Picks for 2012 and with good reason. The TL benefits from ABS, Electronic Brake Distribution, and Brake Assist. The Vehicle Stability Assist works to keep the vehicle on the road at all times. A wonderful six-airbag system helps to decrease crash severity for the occupants. The 6-speed manual gearbox paired with the SH-AWD system results in a competent performance car. With the 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD you are getting the best of both worlds!

Once you get past the exterior, you will find a comfortable, roomy, refined, and tech laden cabin that will have most shoppers quite impressed.

2012 Acura TL 0-90 MPH... 1st-4th gears 6 speed auto!
I love this 6 speed, while watching the 6 speed auto videos on youtube... I thought the gearing was still quite wide, but in person... I can tell you that, the gearing is PERFECT! If 1st was any lower, there would be more wheelspin and trq steer... Not acceleration. WONDERFUL car! :)





How SH-AWD works: Acura's AWD system explained
Have you been wondering how the Acura SH-AWD system differs from other "Haldex style" AWD systems? In this video I explain how Super Handling All Wheel Drive differs from Audi's Quattro, BMW's x-Drive and the other transverse AWD systems on the market. Aside from the fact that Honda/Acura doesn't have a RWD drivetrain to borrow, the benefit main benefit to a transverse engine layout is improved interior packaging. "Super Handling All Wheel Drive" may not have been the best name for the system, but it is arguably the best AWD system you can tack onto a transverse FWD platform. The systems used by Infiniti, Lexus, Volvo, Lincoln and just about everyone out there that had an AWD system tacked onto a transaxle has no center differential. Instead the power flows from the final gearset of the transmission to the front diff and the rear diff via gears at a fixed 1:1 ratio. Between this gear arrangement and the rear diff is a clutch pack that allows the car to connect, disconnect or have a varied connection between the transmission and rear axles. When fully connected the power is split 50/50 assuming all wheels have traction. SH-AWD also uses the same arrangement but adds a unique differential unit in the rear that does two things. First, it has a gearset to "speed up" the rear wheels so that when they are connected, they spin 1.7% faster than the fronts. (The old RL used a variable ratio system but it is no longer used.) Next it has a torque vectoring unit that is capable of slitting power 100:0/0:100 left to right. In a straight line, "overdriving" the rear wheels gives the MDX a more RWD feel than otherwise possible and in corners the system is capable of sending up to 70% of the power to the outside rear wheel helping the MDX's cornering manners and masking the "plowing" tendencies normal in a front heavy car. For 2014 Acura took this a step further and uses a system to brake wheels selectively to improve neutral handling. This is beyond stability control because the system is always active rather than active only when things are going pear-shaped.
