The 2014 Acura TL lands somewhere between the realms of the sport- and luxury-sedan markets.
In its base form, it's a little more expensive and a little larger than the BMW 3-Series, Audi A4 or Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
It's closer in size to the BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, but it's significantly less expensive than any of them–unless you option out a TL SH-AWD.
The Cadillac CTS makes for another solid rival.
It's offered with rear-wheel drive, great handling, and a variety of powertrains, and it's been redesigned for 2014.
The Nissan Maxima has a very similar personality to the base TL, with its front-drive and V-6 layout–and it has a really lovely interior, too.
The Hyundai Genesis sedan offers luxury at a value–and while its interior is about as good as the TL's, the V-6 performance just isn't quite as rewarding as the Acura's.
Finally, there's the VW CC, with its stylish interior and excellent gas mileage, but it's not a sports sedan in the least.
