The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Boldly styled and laden with high-tech features, the 2010 Acura TL is a solid value, though enthusiasts might find its overall ability lacking. The 2010 Lincoln MKZ wraps its roomy, cozy interior in a conservative bod-with a slight nod to sporty drivers.
