The TL is Acura's upscale offering based on the popular Honda Accord platform. For about $34,000, you get a stylish sedan with superb interior quality and a 5-speed automatic transmission. The TL's 258-bhp V6 engine provides lots of power. For the performance enthusaist, the Type-S ups the ante to 286-bhp and offers a six-speed manual transmission. The quality 5.1 audio system is a unique feature for a luxury car in this price range. Overall, the TL is an excellent value. The sole suggestion to improve this FWD vehicle would be to add an all-wheel drive option to manage torque steer more effectively.

What Changed:

The TL Type-S returns for 2007. A larger displacement 3.5L V6 is rated at 286 hp, an increase of 28 hp over the base model. The Type-S package offers a choice of six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The six-speed manual is now only offered on the Type-S model. The Type-S also adds larger Brembo front brakes, unique wheels and minor interior trim differences.
