2011 Acura TL Overview

With its mix of luxury and everyday practicality, the 2011 Acura TL sedan seamlessly blends power, handling, and safety with a suite of high-tech and luxurious appointments into an impressive driving experience.

You won’t find yourself wanting for power with the 2011 Acura TL and it’s two engine options.  Available are a 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 and a 305-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6, both of which are coupled to a five-speed automatic with auto-manual mode or a six-speed manual transmission.  The TL is available in base front-wheel-drive or Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive trim levels.  The SH-AWD distributes more torque to the outside rear wheel in turns to help the TL push through them quickly and optimizes balance.  EPA estimated fuel economy ratings range between 17-18 mpg in the city and 25-26 mpg on the highway.  Competition for the 2011 Acura TL includes the Audi A4, Lexus IS, and BMW 3-Series.

The 2011 Acura TL features a bold exterior, with Acura’s prominent beak-like grille leading the way.  17-inch aluminum wheels are standard fare on the TL, while the SH-AWD trim sits atop larger 18- or 19-inch aluminum wheels for even better handling.  The leather interior is sleek, and a power moonroof, dual-zone adaptive climate control, 10-way power adjustable driver seat, and heated front seats are modern comforts that are sure to please – and also come standard.

As far as high-tech/audio supremacy goes, an eight-speaker audio system with XM Satellite Radio, Bluetooth® connectivity, and a HandsFreeLink wireless telephone interface is standard, and an available Technology Package adds a navigation system with voice recognition, real-time traffic alerts, and rerouting capabilities, as well as a 10-speaker premium sound system.  USB connectivity and an MP3 jack are standard and will accommodate anything from an iPod to a thumb drive.

The 2011 Acura TL also houses a long list of passive and active safety features, including dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, dual-chamber front-seat side airbags with front passenger seat occupant position detection system, and side-curtain airbags for front and outboard rear seating positions.  These, combined with Acura’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, help to keep occupants protected in a collision.  Additional standard safety features include four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, electronic brake-force distribution, vehicle stability assist, and daytime running lights.  A hill start assist system prevents the 2011 Acura TL from rolling backwards when you switch from the brake to the accelerator while stopped on a hill.

Ably combining power, agile handling, and slick styling inside and out, the 2011 Acura TL sedan is tough to beat.
