2011 Acura TL Fuel Economy

7.0
On Fuel Economy
The 2011 Acura TL doesn't get much better—or worse—mileage than you might expect from a somewhat heavy sedan with a V-6.

Front-wheel-drive 2011 Acura TL models get 18 mpg city, 26 highwayWith either the six-speed manual gearbox or five-speed automatic transmission, the all-wheel-drive versions of the TL achieve an EPA-rated 17/25 mpg.

But, as our editors have experienced in a longer drive of the TL, you might be surprised to find your results in the upper end of the range. In about 400 miles of cold-weather driving—about two-thirds of it on the highway, but most of it taking advantage of the TL's engine—we averaged nearly 23 mpg, which is better than we would have seen from most other mid-size luxury sport sedans.

The 2011 Acura TL is about as green as you’d expect for a mid-size, V-6 luxury sedan that doesn’t have any hybrid tech on board.
