The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
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 Volkswagen CC sacrifices some practicality in the name of fashion, and feels like a luxury car in many respects.
