Consumer Guide

The 2014 Acura TL has been rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which gave it four stars overall, and four stars both for frontal and side impact.

The 2014 model hasn't yet been tested by the IIHS, but in past tests, it's been a Top Safety Pick, with top 'good' results across the board.

All TL models include six airbags (front side airbags and full-length side-curtain bags), four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, Brake Assist, and electronic stability control. Rear headrests can flip neatly out of the way when nobody's back there, which helps visibility, and a rearview camera system is available. The Advance model also includes a Blind Spot Information System.

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.
