2012 Acura TL - Click above for high-res image

Let's be honest - the Acura TL isn't exactly a pretty car. And while the vast majority of the automotive media and enthusiast forums immediately lashed out at the TL's angular design, we were nothing short of pleased with its luxurious, high-tech interior and solid driving dynamics - especially the six-speed manual-equipped SH-AWD. For the 2012 model year, Acura has softened some of the car's harsh lines, and while the automaker tells us that both the front and rear fascias are "all-new," there's no mistaking this sedan for anything but a TL.

Because this is merely a modest mid-cycle refresh, the TL's powertrain hasn't been completely overhauled. Both the 3.5- and 3.7-liter V6s are still on hand, though a new six-speed automatic transmission helps improve performance and fuel economy. A new set of 19-inch all-season tires are available on SH-AWD models in an effort to improve performance on snow and ice, fitted to an updated set of alloy wheels.

Inside, Acura has made substantial improvements to reduce wind and road noise, and the HDD navigation system has been upgraded to 60 gigabytes for improved music storage. What's more, a new Advance Package nets customers things like a blind spot information system and cooled front seats. Look for the 2012 TL to hit dealerships later this year.

Hopefully Acura finds their way back, design wise, before they go out of business.
+1......1st it was just the grille, but now the whole car looks bland & may have came off of a Star Trek movie. :dunno: :hsugh:
