2009 Acura TL


Acura launched the fourth generation of its TL sedan in fall 2008. It is still built on the same platform as the Honda Accord in North America, as it did a year ago, she took up the ranks in 2009.

The FWD models have a 280 hp version of the 3.5-liter V6 used in several Acura and Honda. The new TL SH-AWD AWD rely on them on a 3.7L V6 with 305 hp almost identical to that officiates in the Acura RL and Acura MDX sport utility.

All TL have a five-speed automatic transmission equipped with a manual mode and paddle gear shifts mounted behind the steering wheel.

The buttons of the heating / cooling are divided into two vertical blocks on either side of the central portion of the dashboard.
This unusual arrangement requires a period of adaptation.
Our test car was equipped with a rearview camera handy ... as projections of the road does not make "blind", especially in winter.

The range is from the TL Base FWD ($ 39,990) to the TL SH-AWD with Technology Package ($ 47,990). We conducted this version, which include optional equipment wheel drive, 18-inch wheels, a navigation system, a premium stereo system, a rearview camera system and keyless start.

Inside and outside
Acura took the redesign of the TL to completely transform her figure. The clean lines of the older generation have given way to a convoluted body, overloaded with devices of questionable taste. Our testers unanimously condemned the huge chrome grille which disfigures further than other Acura TL that are decked.
