2005 Acura TL

    2005 Acura TL Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Acura TL

    • This creamy-smooth SOHC powerplant provides swift acceleration accompanied by a sonorous, mechanized symphony.

      - Motor Trend
    • Its powerful 3.2-liter V6 engine, nicely balanced suspension, rigid structure, and classy good looks make the TL a serious contender in both the near-luxury and compact sport-sedan categories.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • High-intensity headlights are a real plus.

      - The Detroit News
    • Corners with the agility of a sports car.

      - USA Today

    What reviewers liked least about the Acura TL

    • Low-risk styling only strays a bit from the Japanese-industry idiom.

      - Car and Driver
    • It falls a notch or two short of being a true sport sedan.

      - Motor Trend
    • The front seats, though cushy and attractive, did not meet our expectations...they lack support and the adjustable lumbar bulge is of marginal help.

    Acura TL Comparisons

    • The Acura signature grille could easily be mistaken for that of a Toyota Camry Solara.

      - AutoWeek
    • Firmer ride than the Lexus ES 300 and Infiniti I30.

      - Consumer Guide
    • Steering still lacks the telepathic qualities of the [BMW] 330 or the [Lexus] IS 300.

    Best one-liner about the Acura TL

    • One of the nicest things about the TL is that what you see is what you get...almost everything is standard.
