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. The 2013 Hyundai Azera is still a good value, but now it offers real design appeal, confident performance, and a true luxury-car ambiance. Larger but leaner, the 2013 Lexus ES gains a hybrid model and some very attractive new styling to stave off strong new competition.
