Last model year was significant for Acura's bestselling sedan. Simply put, it went under the knife for a slightly new look, and in the process received a long list of performance and amenity upgrades that remain for 2013. Designers evolved their controversial "Motion Surface" language by sculpting a less edgy physique, installing a more modestly pronounced "beak" at the nose, and tucking newly styled wheels under each fender well. The 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 (TL) and bigger 305-horsepower 3.7-liter (TL SH-AWD) are untouched, which is no bad thing considering their very respectable punches. City/highway EPA fuel ratings stay at 20/29 for the base TL, 18/26 for TL SH-AWD, and 17/25 for TL SH-AWD with six-speed manual. The brand's SportShift six-speed automatic with paddles and two-gear-downshift capability comes standard and adds an extra hint of sportiness in both models, while a short-shift six-speed manual gearbox separates the most athletic SH-AWD 6MT model, which also receives a sportier suspension setup, revised front driveshafts, model-specific all-wheel drive calibration, new front differential, and 19-inch alloys. Inside, passengers will notice less road noise (thanks to various NVH improvements), front ventilated seats, an available 60-gigabyte multimedia system with 8-inch LCD screen, and LED lighting throughout.

Overall Rating
Pros Cons
Cockpit comfort including ability to reach all controls easily Transmission at high speeds: a little sluggish during passing
Interior - seats setup and over all look. Trunk could be bigger, however styling always figures into this.
I love the awd combined with manual transmission Passenger seat - lack of memory & lack of lumbar control
Engine power / responsneness superior for this class of car Engine / transmission interface at low speeds not good.
The car is a joy to drive, comfortable, stable, reliable. Navigation system too complex, tries to do all things to all people.
Gas mileage - rated to 24 overall, getting 25.2 - a pleasant surprise! Necessary to take eyes off the road to use many dashboards options.
Performance, it has great pickup and superior handling Driver's seat slants - need pillow
Exceptional highway handling especially at cornering. Acceleration from zero is not very fast
The interior is well - designed, very comfortable & beautifully coordinated Trunk style gets dirt streak down middle of trunk
Interior design & comfort are truly exceptional Ride isn't as smooth as i would expect. doesnt take bumps as well as i'd like
