Acura TL 2010, a super fast city car

The Acura TL 2010 has a lot to offer from its athletic overall look, an adequate interior volume that can accommodate adult-sized passengers and many luxury and efficient features to the traditional reputation for reliability of the car maker Acura. However, sad to say all of these are covered in a skin that suggests a favorable or unfavorable response from those who will be driving it. Although appearance does play an important role when it comes to choosing a car, we would all surely like to think that aesthetics are not about everything. This is true for the Acura TL 2010.

Acura TL 2010 Exterior

The Acura TL 2010 was redesigned a year ago compared to the other models of Acura. It has gained a strange nose and bulky rear end. Strange but it is certainly sporty. It produces more power due to its all wheel drive.  In addition to that, you will sure love its SH-AWD or super-handling all-wheel drive version.  In terms of the exterior, both are the same for the two models. The Acura TL 2010 is a midsize car and it is available in base or sporty SH-AWD trim levels. The base model has 17 inch alloy wheel, fog lights, xenon headlights, heated side mirrors and a sunroof.  It pretty much has everything that you want.

Acura TL 2010 Interior

The interior of Acura TL 2010 is equipped with features like rear venatilation controls, dual-zone automatic climate control, driver memory functions, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, heated front seats, leather upholstery, phone and trip computer controls, a Bluetooth and a steering-wheel-mounted audio. It also offers a standard eight-speaker stereo with in-dash six-CD changer, streaming Bluetooth audio, satellite radio, USB port, as well as an auxiliary audio jack. On the other hand, the SH-AWD adds all-wheel drive, 18-inch allow wheels, a more powerful engine, hill start assist, upgraded brakes, upgraded metallic trim and more aggressively bolstered front seats. A few added dollars makes it all worth it.

Acura TL 2010 Performance

The Acura TL 2010 base model is front-wheel drive. It produces the power of about 254 pound-feet of torque. The 3.5 V6 engine is capable of producing 280 hp. On the other hand, the SH-AWD model is capable of producing about 273 pound-feet of torque. The higher engine which is 3.7 V6 is boosting about 305 horsepower. Both models are equipped with five-speed automatic transmission which is just right for city driving. Speeding up in the highway will not disappoint you as well. The car has a kind of road-holding grip making it more modernized compared to its competitors. Most importantly, a six-speed manual transmission has been added to the SD-AWD mix and making it very suited to those who are seeking an additional enjoyment in their driving experience.
