The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Acura RL is loaded with tech features and supremely comfortable for long-haul trips; but it won't get driving enthusiasts all that excited. The Genesis' impressive details and execution make it a pragmatic luxury-car choice, especially in the quick, plush V-6 version.
