This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The front-wheel drive Acura TL is a refined, mid-sized sedan offering a winning combination of sport and luxury. It is available in two trim levels: the TL, and the performance-oriented TL Type-S. The TL comes with a 258 hp 3.2-liter V6 engine, while the TL Type-S features a dynamic 286 hp 3.5-liter V6. Both engines are paired with a five-speed automatic transmission with SportShift manual control, and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters are standard on the TL Type-S. Alternatively, the Type-S can be outfitted with a six-speed manual transmission, matched to a limited-slip differential for improved traction. Every TL is equipped with a power moonroof, Bi-Xenon High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights, heated front seats, leather upholstery, automatic climate control, satellite radio and HandsFreeLink (Bluetooth) wireless connectivity. The TL Type-S is distinguished by a more aggressive exterior, with modified fascias, wider side sills, quad tailpipes, rear spoiler and exclusive alloy wheels; distinctive interior styling cues include two-tone leather sport seats and stainless steel pedals. A navigation system with voice activation and integrated rearview camera parking assist is standard on the TL Type-S and available for the TL. For 2008, the Acura TL carries over unchanged.
