The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The millionaire next door just might be driving a Hyundai Genesis; it's a luxury-car bargain, with a well-finished interior, plenty of power and good fuel economy. The 2013 Acura TL is a comfortable, attractive, and well-equipped luxury sedan--but in top SH-AWD guise it morphs into something that even driving enthusiasts will find compelling.
