TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Acura TL is a comfortable, attractive, and well-equipped luxury sedan--but in top SH-AWD guise it morphs into something that even driving enthusiasts will find compelling. Magnificent design and technology sets the Audi A4 apart, but it's not quite as sporty as its BMW and Cadillac competition. The 2013 Infiniti G37 offers some of the sensory thrills of a sports car, in a more practical sedan body style, although it's not as refined as other premium-brand alternatives.
