Default Is the Acura TL Type S considered a sports car?

I'm looking at the Acura TL series that seem to have the sporty look to them. My parents are only looking at cars that are not considered sports cars due to high insurance. Is it considered a sport car? If not, what is it considered as?

it's not a 'sports' car, but will have higher insurance due to theft...and your age.

The classical definition of a "sports car" is a two seat car that is convertible (yes naysayers that was the original definition). Insurance will be based on your age, the weight and horsepower of the car, your geographic location and assuming you will be on your parents insurance, your parents' credit rating. The Acura TL Type S would likely be classified as a sport sedan.
