Thanks to its Honda Accord roots, the TL has excellent passenger space front and back, with enough space for three adults in the back seat. The interior was appointed with supple leather and seats with generous proportions, giving good thigh support but not quite enough lateral support for serious high-performance driving.
There's only one functional disappointment: With 13.1 cubic feet of space in the trunk, the TL is a bit short of some of its competition.
Acura does its usual fine job here assembling the TL. There aren't as many options as in rival vehicles, but the materials are solid and tolerances are tight.
Low in wind noise and solid in feel, the TL doesn't have as much ambient road noise in its cabin as vehicles such as the Infiniti M37 or Cadillac CTS. That's for the base model; TL sedans with the 19-inch optional wheels not only have a tougher ride, they're more noisy, too.
