The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
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 2010 Hyundai Genesis is a power play for luxury credibility-and it's just about the equal of mid-size luxury rivals from Lexus and Infiniti.
