2012 Acura TL Video

The Acura TL used to be the brand’s best-selling vehicle (emphasis on the past tense). While the 2009 redesign was a fine vehicle overall, its bold styling offended enough people to hurt the car’s popularity. For 2012, Acura has addressed those concerns with some carefully orchestrated cosmetic surgery. It’s surprising what a little rhinoplasty and a brow and rear-end lift have done to the 2012 Acura TL. The car is definitely easier on the eyes. Match that with a more fuel-efficient powertrain and some interior modifications and all of sudden there’s the potential for real success, according to Cars.com senior editor Joe Wiesenfelder.

Does it look less ugly? Yes, a bit. But it's lipstick on a pig.
