The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Genesis' impressive details and execution make it a pragmatic luxury-car choice, especially in the quick, plush V-6 version. The 2012 Acura TL is a surprisingly well-rounded luxury sedan, with a host of advanced tech features, and in top SH-AWD trim morphs into a complete and compelling sport sedan.
