2014 Acura TL Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy

Regardless of which 2014 Acura TL you choose–front-wheel drive or sporty SH-AWD guise–fuel economy is pretty average for the segment.

The base car with front-wheel drive is rated at 20 mpg city/29 mpg highway. The SH-AWD model with an automatic transmission is rated at 18/26 mpg respectively, and the manual version earns 17/25 mpg.

Gas mileage lags, as the TL has stood by bigger-displacement six-cylinders in an era of downsized turbo fours.

We should note that we've as well or better than the EPA ratings in the SH-AWD models; in one with the manual gearbox we averaged nearly 23 mpg in about 400 miles of cold-weather driving—about two-thirds of it on the highway.
