The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
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. Strikingly handsome, fun to drive, well-built, and competitive on pricing and features, the 2013 Cadillac CTS continues the brand's good reputation.
