FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Due in large part to over-reaching styling the latest generation TL
received a tepid welcome when it launched in 2009. In an effort to keep it
competitive Acura remade the TL via a mid-cycle refresh, tweaking its
exterior and updating its powertrain. The result is a more efficient luxury
sedan that's easier on the eyes.

2012 Acura TSX Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/acura/tsx/2012/ The 2012 Acura TSX is a perfect
mix of a luxury and sports car. You can trace the roots of the TSX all the
way back to the Acura Integra which is a legend in the sport compact car
world. But the TSX has grown up and sports 4-doors and tons of luxury
features. But make no mistake; the sports car blood line is still present.
The 2012 Acura TSX has a base price of $30,010 with the top of the line
sedan version costing $38,650.
The 2012 Acura TSX comes with 2 available engines. The first is a 2.4 liter
4-cylinder engine with VTECH. This engine makes 201 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of
torque and gets 22 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway. This engine
is mated to either a 5-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual.
There is a lager 3.5 liter V-6 engine available. This motor produces 280 horsepower and 254
lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy for this engine is 19 MPG in the city and 28
MPG on the highway.
The sporty engine is just one of the many attributes that make the 2012
Acura TSX such a great performance sedan. The front suspension is a
double-wishbone unit while the rear is a multi-link suspension which
improves stability. The steering is very light and precise. There are 11
inch brakes all around that are highly responsive. High-Strength steel is
used throughout the underbody which not only keeps weight down, but adds to
the rigidiy of the vehicle. This helps with handling but more important
aids in helping return a smoother ride.
On the inside there is a ton of leather both on the seats and many of the
surfaces. The Acura ELS Surround is a premium sound system that is
available as an option. The Technology Package adds an 8-inch touch screen
navigation unit. The 2012 Acura TSX comes with six airbags including front,
side, and rear curtain airbags to protect all passengers. The TSX has a
Vehicle Stability Assist System that uses sensors along with the ABS system
to keep the vehicle in control. These systems help the 2012 Acura TSX Sedan
make it to the IIHS Top Safety List for 2012.

2012 Acura RL Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/acura/rl/2012/ The 2012 Acura RL is the most
expensive top of the line vehicle currently offered by Acura. That means
the RL has all the bells and whistles that Acura has to offer including a
great powertrain, tons of technology, and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive.
The base price on the 2012 Acura RL $48,200 with the high end RL with the
Advance Package going for $56,150.
Maybe the best part about the 2012 Acura RL is the 3.7 liter VTEC V-6
engine which makes 300 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of
torque. This engine is pretty high tech featuring a forged crankshaft,
alloy cylinder head, drive-by-wire throttle system, and a high flow Exhaust. The 6-speed automatic transmission is
one of the best in the industry featuring Sequential Sport Shift paddles
that add a sporty feel to the RL. This transmission also helps fuel economy
which is rated at 17 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway which is
good for an AWD car.
Speaking of AWD the 2012 Acura RL benefits from an advanced Super Handling
All-Wheel Drive system. The computer uses sensors located around the car to
measure stuff like wheel speed, the steering angle, and yaw rate. The
SH-AWD system then makes adjustments to send power to the wheels that need
it most. Power can be sent to the front wheels, rear wheels, or split
between the two. Also in tight cornering situations the SH-AWD can send
power to a specific wheel. This not only adds to the handling capability of
the RL but it also helps in the safety department.
On the inside of the 2012 Acura RL resides the best luxury amenities that
Acura has to offer. Many of the surfaces are wrapped in leather including
the seats which are nice and comfortable. In fact the seats are perforated
which allows the heater mechanism warm much better. The seats are also
multi-way adjustable. The rear passengers also enjoy a high level of
comfort with tons of room, nice comfortable seats, and power sunshades on
The technology found in the Acura RL is top notch. Besides the Bluetooth,
there is a wonderful BOSE surround sound stereo system offering clear and
crisp sound. The Acura Navigation System features an 8-inch screen that is
perfectly integrated into the dash. Safety wise the 2012 Acura RL comes
equipped with Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, Crash Mitigation,
and Six Airbags to keep the occupants safe.
