The Acura TL is freshened for 2012 with styling revisions and a new 6-speed automatic that improves fuel economy. The 2012 Acura TL styled in Acura's Design Studio in Torrance California continues a long Acura tradition of being outspoken iconoclastic and polarizing. Many will find the TL distinctive and self-defined while others will find it lacking in gracefulness.As the luxury division of Honda Motors Acura has a high pedigree in advanced efficient design. And with the continued evolution of its versatile TL line of sedans Acura delivers a car that will satisfy a broad range of driver demands.We found the 2012 Acura TL has strong performance and sumptuous creature comforts. Front-wheel drive is standard but the Acura TL SH-AWD features all-weather all-wheel drive. Packaged in edgy controversial styling the fresh looks of the 2012 TL will please many and confuse many others.The 2012 Acura TL offers two engine packages: The TL comes with a 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 that generates 254 pound-feet of torque at 5000 rpm and front-wheel drive. The TL SH-AWD gets a 305-hp 3.7-liter V6 that produces 273 lb/ft of torque at 5000 rpm for higher-performance.The 2012 Acura TL 3.5-liter delivers EPA mileage figures of 20/29 mpg quite good for a car with serious credentials in the near-luxury field. The 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD with its 3.7-liter and all-wheel drive when equipped with the automatic transmission is rated 18/26 mpg while the 3.7 all-wheel drive with manual transmission the quickest version gets EPA figures of 17/25 mpg.Keeping pace with the competition the 2012 TL offers a new sequential 6-speed transmission with paddle shifters in both versions as well as the 6-speed manual in the fast TL SH-AWD 6MT.
