Default TL: Acura TL Wins "Best Cars for Families" Award From U.S. News & World Report

The 2013 TL, Acura's performance luxury sedan, has been named "Best Upscale Midsize Car for Families" by U.S. News & World Report in its 2013 "Best Cars for Families" awards.


"The Acura TL offers the ideal blend of performance, comfort and safety, resulting in a luxury sedan that's a smart choice for families," said Mike Accavitti, vice president of national marketing operations. "The TL provides parents with the performance they desire in a luxury sedan paired with a well-appointed interior, top safety ratings, a host of standard Acura technologies and spacious second row seating that is ideal for clients and children."


The "Best Cars for Families" awards combine quality, size and family-friendly features into a composite score. Quality is measured using a weighted average of scores from the U.S. News rankings at the time the awards are published. The rankings compare cars on the basis of safety, reliability and a consensus of automotive critics' opinions. Size is based on a vehicle's seating capacity and interior space. For family-friendly features, U.S. News factors in the availability of features deemed to be helpful to families by its editors.


The 2013 TL, featuring Acura's Advanced Compatibility Engineering? (ACE?) body structure, was among the first vehicles to receive the highest possible safety rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) under its more-stringent testing guidelines. ACE is an exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes. Standard safety equipment on all Acura models includes Vehicle Stability Assist? (VSA®) with traction control, ABS, dual-stage/multiple-threshold front airbags, front-side airbags, side curtain airbags for all outboard seating positions, front seatbelts with automatic tensioning system and load limiters, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and Daytime Running Lights (DRL).


The 2013 Acura TL is offered in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive drivetrain configurations. The front-wheel drive TL is powered by an all-aluminum, 3.5-liter, 24-valve, VTEC® V-6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque. The all-wheel drive version of the TL utilizes Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive? (SH-AWD®) system and comes equipped with an all-aluminum,* 3.7-liter, 24-valve, VTEC®* V-6 engine that produces 305 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Both versions are equipped with a Sequential SportShift 6-speed automatic transmission as standard. For the enthusiast, a 6-speed manual transmission is available on the TL SH-AWD model when equipped with the Technology Package.


With a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP*) starting at $35,905, the 2013 Acura TL offers an outstanding array of standard features such as premium leather seats; adjustable, power front seats with 2-position driver's seat memory settings; Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® cellular telephone interface; an 8-speaker, 276-watt audio system with a 6-disc CD changer, AM/FM radio, XM® Radio, Bluetooth® Audio and USB port and AUX jack connectivity; Dual-zone, dual-mode automatic climate control system with auto humidity control; power moonroof; and aluminum wheels, sized at 17x8 inches for the front-wheel drive TL and 18x8 inches for the TL with SH-AWD.
