The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Acura TL is an attractive, comfortable, well-appointed luxury sedan. Choose the SH-AWD model, and you have yourself a legitimate sport sedan, too. The 2014 Audi A4 and S4 are trim, tech-savvy alternatives to the usual German luxury sedans, and to one stunningly good American one.
