Expert Quotes:

18 mpg city, 26 highway (AWD auto); 17/25 (AWD manual); 20/29 (front-wheel drive, 3.5-liter)
U.S. EPA





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.

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.

Conclusion

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

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.
