2014 Acura TL Prices, Reviews and Pictures

The Acura TL is unchanged for 2014. Thanks to its aggressive styling, the TL stands out in its class; its two separate models cater separately to comfort-oriented buyers and performance enthusiasts. The TL's technology features are better than most other mid-size luxury cars.

Acura TL Model Changes
The mid-size Acura TL returns largely unchanged for 2014. The car continues to feature the bold, angular yet sleek styling that Acura is now known for and a roomy interior with a host of high-tech features.

On the inside, the TL has a layout that affords both the driver and front passenger their own personal space, divided by a center console and audio controls that protrude outward. Front occupants get firm but comfortable sport seats and there's space in back for three adults across.


Distinctive styling; roomy interior; ride quality; high-tech features

A 280-horsepower, 3.5L V6 powers the front-wheel-drive TL through a Sequential SportShift 6-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive SH-AWD model gets a 305-horsepower, 3.7L V6 and a throaty high-flow dual exhaust system that brings more of a sport-sedan character. Although the all-wheel-drive model does improve the TL's available traction in snow and on slippery roads, the primary focus of the SH-AWD (super handling) is to improve stability in sharp corners by sending torque to the wheels that need it most. The SH-AWD offers an optional 6-speed manual transmission.

For both trims, a double-wishbone front suspension and rear multi-link setup assure a firm but smooth ride. The SH-AWD model is tuned for more responsive handling without giving up ride comfort by incorporating a performance-tuned suspension, larger wheels and tires and a version of the electric power steering system tuned for better road feel. Versions equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission also receive numerous other changes to the vehicle's dynamics, including a self-adjusting clutch assembly and a specially calibrated Hill Start Assist that helps hold the vehicle on inclines of 8 degrees or more. The hood is made of aluminum for weight savings in both models.

Standard features on the TL include dual-zone climate control, a power moonroof, leather upholstery, a Bluetooth HandsFreeLink calling interface and an 8-speaker, 276-watt sound system. XM Satellite Radio and Bluetooth audio streaming are also standard.
