the available navigation system doesn't absorb primary audio and climate functions but does complicate some adjustments
ConsumerGuide

In keeping with Acura’s tradition of selling well-equipped vehicles with only a few high-tech options, most features are included as standard, and that’s key for keeping the bottom-line cost on the Acura RL lower than it might be for rivals with a similar base price.

ConsumerGuide points out some of its favorite standard features, noting "leather upholstery with heated front seats, sunroof, wireless cell phone link, and DVD Audio." Edmunds touts the TL's "impressive level of standard equipment," while Kelley Blue Book echoes the sentiment, proclaiming that the car is "packed with a sophisticated lineup of standard equipment."

ForbesAutos is fairly rote in its description of the standard "power driver seat, heated front seats, DVD-Audio," while Cars.com prefers to wax a bit more poetic about the 10-way function of that power driver's seat in the 2007 Acura TL and the "tilt/telescoping steering column." Cars.com also appreciates that some functions can be accessed from the steering wheel.

ConsumerGuide notes that the voice-activated navigation system is standard on Type-S models but optional on the base 2007 Acura TL—though the editors also air a concern. "The available navigation system doesn't absorb primary audio and climate functions but does complicate some adjustments," they note. "Many of its functions take time to master. Its screen brightness often needs to be changed to suit light conditions, which is a hassle."

Nearly everyone is happy with the functionality and the switchgear in the 2007 Acura TL, but ConsumerGuide editors note that the buttons and knobs are a bit cluttered: "major controls are well marked, but minor functions are governed by numerous small controls that are difficult to identify at a glance."

Conclusion

An impressive list of standard features helps keep the option game at bay.

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.
