The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Bentley Mulsanne delivers the height of refined luxury, power, and design--at a price. The 2012 Acura RL is loaded with tech features and supremely comfortable for long-haul trips; but it won't get driving enthusiasts all that excited.
