TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2014 Acura TL is an attractive, comfortable, well-appointed luxury sedan. Choose the SH-AWD model, and you have yourself a legitimate sport sedan, too. The 2014 Lexus ES is an attractive package in its segment, and the hybrid model makes for a very compelling alternative to more expensive green luxury cars.
