2009 Acura TL


Looks like a cross between the current model and the new TSX.

And you know it will be getting “the Grille”. That belt buckle wannabe…

Too bad…

More if you click on the title.

  1. Hey Vince, That’s an awfully big USB port in the back of this Accord clone. How much memory can be plugged in at one time? Do they really make flash drives that big these days?

  2. Ugly grille…ugly butt
    was a nice looking car. What were the designers thinking. Guess they wanted to compete with BMW Bangle bungle.

  3. Horrible, just horrible. 1st the nasty RDX, then the MDX, then TSX and now this! What is Honda thinking???

  4. It’s a mistake for Acura to believe that the backend of their cars needs to be a mirror image of the front.

  5. I am a fan of Acura, but I have to admit that this looks weird from this angle. When I saw the spy shots in another site afew days ago, I thought that Acura went the Solara way. On the other hand the new RL looks great.

    Vince, clicking the title gets you nowhere. “Taste your food before you serve it.”

  6. Well….at least the car will be visually balanced. Not only will it have super ultra mega hideously ugly front end, but now, it will also have a super ultra mega hideously ugly rear end to balance things out.

    Well, at least I now know where the Aztec designers went.

  7. There’s a TL in that picture? All I see is the rear end of an Accord with the tag in a different place!

  8. Gotta see it naked, so far not liking the overall shape of the butt on this car. Kind looks like a toyota. But let wait and see.

  9. “trying to copy mercedes cls just like vw is. New Maxima beats ’em all baby!”

    New Maxima beats them in what? Nothing. Okay…. Thanks for your worthless opinion.

    For everyone criticising Acura maybe you should check the ACTUAL sales figures. The new “ugly” TSX is selling like crazy, and before the price increase in fuel, the MDX was selling well too. Do not confuse personal opinion with fact.

  10. poor , simple, ignorant acura defender. the maxima beats any acura in every category. where have you been on mars with the recent landing? duh? grow up, we appreciate that you work in the cleanup department at a honda store but facts are facts. honda/acura build nothing that challenges any Nissan. Nissan Rocks, honda walks….it’s taillights down the road.

    Compelling arguement other than the fact that you provide NO FACTS or data. Honda beats Nissan in every comparison test I have read in the past three years, they are more reliable according to CR who does actual reliability studies, have a higher resale value, and SELL MORE VEHICLES.

    Until you show me otherwise, you are just some fool on the Internet who can not back up their own biased opinion. You fail.
