The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Acura RL lives up to its flagship status in the Acura lineup with top-notch tech features and long-haul comfort, but charm comes up missing. The 2011 Audi A6 is elegant and agile, although its cabin design is looking somewhat dated.
