April 2nd, 2013 | 0 Comments | Acura

The 2014 Acura TL is one brand new car from Acura that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Acura TL. The 2014 Acura TL is made to fulfill the demand of buyers in the world. Initially, Acura TL is a mid size sedan and manufactured by Acura. The 2014 Acura TL is introduced in 1995 to supplant the Acura Vigor and was rebadged for the Japanese market. That time, this car becomes the best selling model until it was outsold most recently by the MDX since 2007 and it has ranked as the second best selling luxury sedan in the US. And now, the Acura wants to develop a fresh generation of TL so that it can compete with other brands in the market. Let’s talk more about the 2014 Acura TL.

2014 Acura TL Price

That’s a lot of kit for $42,885, but to persuade luxury car buyers to experience the TL, the exterior needed a bit of work. When looking at the TL from 50 feet away, it’s difficult to discern where Acura designers have made improvements, but somehow, the TL looks more agreeable than last year’s model. Gone is the awkward front fascia that gave the TL its vertical appearance. In its stead is a softer, gentler face that swaps a sharp, toothy grille in favor of a less blunt beak. The front bumper has also been revised, along with the headlight design and fog lamp setup. As a result, the 2012 TL appears lower and wider, even though the sedan is almost dimensionally identical to the 2011 model.

2014 Acura TL Interior and Exterior

2014 Acura TL should be a refinement of the current series that experience many modifications to get better performance and fuel economy. And we know very well that the new 2013 Acura ILX goes on sale this spring and just slightly smaller than the European Honda Accord based TSX and the two cars are priced nearly on top of one another. So, it is no surprise that ILX’s spring on-sale date has again spurred rumors the TSX is doomed. And then, we hear if Acura will converge the TSX with its most popular sedan, the TL, and sell the product of the combo the TLX. However, we still not sure about this, so we just need to wait to know more explanation about the rumors of the 2014 Acura TL in order to get the right information from Acura.

We’re also fans of the TL’s well bolstered front seats. These leather laden thrones kept our butts planted during aggressive driving, while also coddling at cruising speeds on Michigan’s highways and byways. Like the last TL, this model continues to feature plenty of room for passengers, with 42.5 inches of front leg room and 36.2 inches for back seat occupants. Trunk space continues to be a problem, though, as the 12.5 cubic feet of storage space in our all wheel drive tester (front-drive models eke out 13.1 cubes) is among the worst in this class. At one point, we were stunned to find that the trunk of the TL couldn’t swallow a small cooler, a moderately sized suitcase and a handbag filled with beach accessories. Then again, there’s always the Acura TSX Sport Wagon for an enlarged family of four.

Furthermore, with the TSX and TL not scheduled for a major update until the 2014 model year, so the TSX will be sold alongside the ILX for at least a year and Acura unveiled its RLX concept at the New York International Auto Show earlier this month. And as the best selling of car from Acura, 2014 Acura TL will be expected to have better design, interior and exterior so that it can fulfill the demand of market about a luxury car.

2014 Acura TL Engine

Some would say that the 280 HP 3.5 liter V6 engine is more than powerful enough for the vast majority of luxury car owners. No arguments here, but to check off the box for a precise, short throw six speed manual, buyers will have to opt for the 3.7, making it the enthusiast engine of choice. The trot to 60 takes about 5.5 seconds, thanks in part to Acura’s amazing all wheel drive systems.

The SH-AWD system provides full-time, four-wheel traction that can route, 70 percent of the available torque to the rear wheels and up to 100 percent of the rear wheel twist can be directed to the left or right wheel for optimal cornering. Hammer the throttle from a dead stop, and the Michelin P245/45 R18 96V high performance all seasons will struggle to make a sound. All that power goes straight to the pavement, and that makes us happy.
