The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Acura TL is a great choice for those who value superb audio, high-tech features, and Honda reliability; serious driving enthusiasts are wise to cross-shop the rear-wheel-drive competition, and buyers who prefer restrained styling need not apply. The 2009 Audi A4 has grown into a more useful luxury sedan, though it goes overboard with optional, programmable handling.
