2012 Acura TL SH-AWD Review: What Is It
Generally speaking, Honda isn't known to be too reactive in responding to a car's poor reception, but when sales of the bread-and-butter Acura TL luxury sedan began to tank, big changes were definitely in store. Using a mid-cycle styling update to get rid of some of the car's more contentious cues, the 2012 Acura TL now has a look that is even sportier and more attractive. The fourth-generation TL has been on the market since 2009, so this updated styling also keeps the car fresh against other mid-size luxury sedans. Acura recently gave us a decked-out 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD for this weeklong road test and review, and we were definitely surprised at how better a little nip-tuck job made the rest of the car look and feel.
