TL's high-quality interior is warm and inviting. The materials are excellent
Riding in the 2007 Acura TL is a comfortable experience. Noise is well controlled and the seats are supportive. Though the TL claims to seat five, that last passenger can be a tight fit if all are adults.
Overall, reviewers are pleased with the cabin of the 2007 Acura TL. The cabin is designed for five passengers, and ConsumerGuide explains, "Seats afford good lateral support for spirited driving, though some of testers say the cushions are firmer than necessary and uncomfortably shaped. There's sufficient overall space for six-footers, but the overall design makes the cabin feel more cozy than it really is." Kelley Blue Book is not bothered by the tight quarters, reporting that "the TL is comfortable [and] roomy." Cars.com feels that "the front seats are extremely comfortable and supportive."
In the rear, ConsumerGuide provides an overview of the 2007 Acura TL passenger experience, pointing out that "headroom is tight for taller riders.” In addition, the reviewers explain that “the seat cushion is low to the floor, oddly shaped, and lacks thigh support,” and “entry and exit require negotiating a narrow lower door frame."
TheCarConnection.com finds that reviewers have no qualms about trunk design or in-cabin storage, and general thoughts on the overall look and feel are positive. Kelley Blue Book calls the experience "fast, fun, comfortable and convenient," and Edmunds lays it all on the line by saying the 2007 Acura TL is "a well-built, high-performing, feature-laden entry-level luxury sport sedan that should please most consumers shopping in this market." The editors at Cars.com feel the "TL's high-quality interior is warm and inviting. The materials are excellent."
ConsumerGuide also praises the quiet ride, saying "wind and road noise are modest. The engine note is sporty but subdued." Plus, the Type-S offers Honda's Active Noise Cancellation, which is "designed to electronically quell mechanical, road, and wind noise."
Some might find the backseat tight, but otherwise the 2007 Acura TL is a well-built and very comfortable luxury sedan.
