The New TL: 2009 Acura TL SH-AWD
CHECK OUT THE NEW ACURA TL:
As we hammer the 2009 Acura TL down some of Malibu's most challenging
canyon roads, the big sedan is handling itself well. It carries enough
speed through the corners to make us a little nervous, but the lack of tire
squeal makes it clear that we're far from pushing its limits.
Jamming this TL into a hairpin doesn't upset it either. The brakes scrub
off plenty of speed and the transmission executes perfect, rev-matched
downshifts. When we flat foot the throttle on the way out, the newly
optional Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system puts down all 305
horsepower of the
3.7-liter V6 to the pavement without a single chirp of the tires.
When we finally hit leisurely traffic on Pacific Coast Highway, the TL
returns to luxury sedan mode. The cabin goes silent, the transmission
smoothly sifts through the gears and the suspension soaks up everything
short of a sinkhole. We're not surprised, as this is the classic Acura
formula — admirable performance coupled with high-tech luxury, and now
the TL has a little more of both.

The ugly stick had quite an effect on Acura's once best-selling TL.
Thankfully, the company has done a great job with refining the look to
bring back customers scared away by the controversial styling. Once you get
past the exterior, you will find a comfortable, roomy, refined, and tech
laden cabin that will have most shoppers quite impressed. If you are in the
market for a spacious, sport luxury sedan with strong value, this TL should
be at the top of your list.

stick-shift, and now this new for '07 Type-S.
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.

Acura TL review from Consumer Reports
The TL is a nice upscale sedan but since its 2009 redesign, it no longer
stands out from the crowd. For 2012, the styling is slightly tweaked and
the transmission got another gear.
