Expert Quotes:

17 mpg city, 24 highway
U.S. EPA





The 2011 Acura RL comes with fuel economy ratings (17 mpg city, 24 highway) that are about average relative to other large luxury sedans.

However, there are a number of other non-luxury-brand mid-size sedans that provide about the same interior space but get much better gas mileage of around 30 or higher on the highway; examples include the Hyundai Sonata, Chevrolet Malibu, and Buick LaCrosse.

Over about 250 miles of driving, a mix of suburban errands and a weekend trip mixing Interstate cruising and two-laners, we managed about 22 mpg overall—pretty respectable for a large-displacement V-6, and about on par with its EPA ratings of 17/24. 

Conclusion

The 2011 Acura RL is somewhat thirsty for its size, but respectable to other luxury models.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
