The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
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 Volkswagen CC eschews a little practicality in the name of fashion; but even some who need to use it as a sedan will find it a worthwhile compromise.
