Model Highlights

The front-wheel-drive 2007 Acura TL continues to offer one of the best combinations of luxury and performance in its segment. The entry-level engine is a 3.2L SOHC V6 that produces 258 horsepower and is paired with a five-speed sequential SportShift automatic transmission. A 286-horsepower 3.5L V6 is standard in the resurrected Type-S. It is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, but can also be ordered with the same five-speed found in the base TL.

Regardless of the engine, you get a roomy, comfortable four-door sedan that comes with standard features more often found in the top-echelon luxury cars. Eight-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, a power moonroof, and dual zone climate control are just a few of the luxury items. The audio system is outstanding, with XM satellite radio found alongside the standard six-CD changer and surround sound DVD audio. Every TL also comes packed with safety features, including side, front, and curtain air bags, anti-lock brakes, traction control.

Aside from the potent V6 and six-speed stick, the Type-S adds stiffer springs, 17-inch alloy wheels, Brembo disc brakes, sport exhaust, distinct exterior and interior styling, and active noise cancellation.

The only option on the TL is for satellite navigation system, which happens to be one of the very best systems available. It includes voice-recognition and real-time traffic information. Since the nav system is standard on the Type-S, aside from selecting the transmission and the color, the only decision to make on Acura's newest TL is whether or not to swap the all-season tires with summer performance treads.

But more important than the gadgets is the driving experience, and the TL is a wonderful mixture of fun and relaxation. With the Type-S, it verges on exhilarating.

Model News

The 2007 model year brings a revised exterior and interior to Acura's TL, plus the return of the TL Type-S. Outside is a larger grille, new bumpers, revised head and taillights, plus new alloy wheels. The TL Type-S gets a larger (3.5L vs. 3.2L) 286-horsepower V6, firmer rolls bars, and stiffer springs for better handling.

Value Writeup

The 2007 Acura TL skillfully combines power, luxury, safety, and reliability in a practical package, all while remaining at the lower end of pricing in its segment. To further its appeal, the Type-S returns after a four-year absence to satisfy performance enthusiasts.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
