2012 acura rl Reviews and News

2012 Acura RL
2012 Acura RL
Acura envisions itself as a younger, sportier brand than it was twenty-five years ago, but it's not quite ready to abandon its older customers, who fell in love with the Legend years ago. As a result, the RL continues to find a home in the company's portfolio, even though monthly sales volumes struggle to reach the triple-digit mark. Interestingly, the slow-selling RL shares quite a bit with the popular TL, including its engines, driveline, and several key dimensions. Each car has its own unique personality, however. Whereas the TL is unmistakably a sport sedan, the RL serves as a premium cruiser. Although the 3.7-liter V-6 produces more than adequate power and the standard torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system provides impressive grip in corners, softer suspension tuning inevitably produces a little more body roll when the RL is driven hard. Still, the RL's edge may lie with comfort -- not only does that suspension tuning provide for a comfortable ride, but the car's cabin also feels more upscale and well arranged than that of its sibling. Acura's typical barrage of infotainment technologies is available on the RL; the ELS surround-sound system is superb, but the optional navigation system is still hampered by dated graphics and clunky menus. Some competitors may offer similar luxuries and a little more fun behind the wheel, but for those eyeing a sedate sedan with just a hint of sport, the RL may be the ideal formula.
2012 Acura RL Front Three Quarter
The headlines at the start of every month often herald the models that top the sales charts. Nameplates such as Ford F-series, Toyota Camry and Corolla, and Honda Accord consistently lead the pack, with hundreds of thousands of units being sold every year.
2013 Acura RLX Driver Side
The folks over at Motor Trend just caught this 2013 Acura RLX test vehicle, which definitely shows a few elements of the concept car revealed at the 2012 New York auto show. The obvious giveaway is the test mule’s power plenum grille, Acura’s signature design feature.
