2014 Acura TL

Buyer's Guide

There were no changes for Acura's midsize luxury sedan, the TL, for 2014, in anticipation of an all-new, smaller, TLX for 2015. The TL comes standard with a 3.5L V6 making 280 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque that's paired with a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters.

Standard equipment includes an eight-speaker stereo, ambient interior lighting, and 10-way power adjustable seats with heat and leather. An available technology package includes a 60 GB hard drive and navigation system, rear-view camera, a premium 440-watt stereo, and perforated leather.

Adding Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (all-wheel drive with torque vectoring to route power as needed to help cornering) upgrades the engine to a 3.7L V6 making 305 hp and makes an optional six-speed manual available. It also adds a sport steering wheel and sport suspension.

On both all-wheel drive and front-drive cars, an A-spec package upgrades to 18-inch (on FWD) or 19-inch (on AWD) wheels, adds side skirts, a front bumper lip, and trunk spoiler, and contrasting stitching. It also includes proximity keyless entry and push button start. On top of the awd with Technology package, an Elite pack adds blind spot monitoring and ventilated front seats.

The Acura TL is rated at 11.8 L/100 km city, 8.1 highway with the base V6, the all-wheel drive and larger engine rate 12.8 city, 9.0 highway with the automatic and 13.4/9.5 with the manual.

The TL competes against the Volvo S60, the Infiniti Q50 and the Lexus ES. While the Acura is older than the competition, it remains a nice interior, and the super handling all-wheel drive makes for a competently handling car.

Great family vehicle
I have had nothing but success with this car, other than the regular maintenance this vehicle has never given me any problems. For the 3.2 V6 engine it has, the fuel economy is rather surprising, achieving over 500 km's each tank.
Comfort is high, with good quality leather, stereo components, and lumbar support this car is awesome for trips.
Ride quality is OK, might have expected more from a luxury car maker like Acura, but all in all I give this vehicle a 4 out of 5.

Dated but still great.
I received this car from my dad at around 204,000km and I'm close to 330,000km and it's still going strong. It's comfortable which is great for me because I'm in my car for work. Exterior styling has become quite dated due to new designs. Handles great and has good acceleration. My previous cars were all 4 cylinder models and this one comes with a thirstier V6 that requires the dreaded premium fuel. That would be my only major downfall with the car.

2 Fast and 2 Furious!! Excellent Ride!
Best bang for your buck. This machine is well equipped and fun to drive. I bought this at 50K and now have over 140K. The car still runs spanking new, thanks to Honda's engineering. No major repair, just the usual wear and tear (oil change, brakes, wiper blade, etc.). You will not be disappointed.
