The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Boldly styled and laden with high-tech features, the 2010 Acura TL is a solid value, though enthusiasts might find its overall ability lacking. The 2010 Audi A4 satisfies a wide spectrum of luxury-car shoppers; the optional Drive Select system's an expensive, unnecessary distraction.
