Expert Quotes:

17 mpg city, 24 highway
U.S. EPA





With EPA fuel economy ratings of 17 mpg city, 24 highway, the 2012 Acura RL is neither particularly fuel-efficient nor especially thirsty.

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.

If anything, you might do even better than those EPA ratings, though. In a drive of a 2011 RL, over a 250-mile 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.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Acura RL is respectable in its class but not particularly fuel-efficient.

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.
