2012 Acura TL Video

The Acura TL used to be the brand’s best-selling vehicle (emphasis on the past tense).

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.
