2012-Acura-TL-front-view

Two generations of bland Acura TLs made way in 2004 for the competent midsize luxury sedan that, as we said in a 2005 review, was finally worthy of serious attention from the established German automakers. With the 2009 TL, Acura made the full transition from wallflower to hard-to-ignore. Acura’s Touring Luxury car became the best-selling luxury sedan in the U.S. in 2005, but some say the bold 2009 redesign went too far.

With the 2012 TL soon to go on sale, let’s take a look at how the model has progressed since it bowed in 1996 in this special blog that capitalized on the review of the TL we featured here last week.
