2005 Acura RL

    2005 Acura RL Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Acura RL

    • The net effect [of the Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive] is to stabilize the car in fast corners in such a way that the words understeer and oversteer don't come up much...

      - Automobile
    • With eight-way adjustability for the driver's seat plus a steering column that telescopes as well as tilts, nearly any adult should find a comfortable position behind the RL's wheel.

      - Cars.com
    • The interior of the new RL is befitting of a true luxury car.

      - Edmunds.com
    • I heard the test car's engine start, but it was a faint sound, and even hard acceleration brought engine sounds that seemed to be far away. This is how insulated the RL's interior is.

    What reviewers liked least about the Acura RL

    • The only complaint we had during our initial drive is that the car tends to feel a little too firm on uneven pavement...

      - Edmunds.com
    • The V6 offers plenty of power but lacks the low-end grunt that could be provided by a V8.

    Acura RL Comparisons

    • The exterior features a much more subtle and discreet version of BMW's fanny pack.

      - Automobile
    • Here's a big plus for the RL over some of its competitors: It comes with all-wheel drive.

      - Cars.com
    • With tons of standard features, excellent road manners and premium cabin furnishings, the new RL is a worthy competitor to the respected players from Audi, BMW and Lexus.

    Best one-liner about the Acura RL

    • It is a comprehensively complete car.

      - Automobile
    • ...the new RL could be called overkill.

      - Edmunds.com
    • Even if you're no Michael Schumacher, this car makes you feel like a champ, as it makes the most of all available grip.
