In regards to an Acura TL, does anyone out there know what the "TL" stands
for?

Thanks.

When the car debuted, I recall Acura spokespeople saying that it had
no meaning. But, since the TL was the Legend's successor, and Acura
was originally just a marketing gimmick to sell $30,000 Hondas to
Americans who wouldn't buy $30,000 Hondas - I've always thought it was
just another gimmick and it really means "The Legend"

I thought RL was "Refined Luxury"



TL= Totally Luxurious
> CL= Clearly Luxurious
> RL= Ridiculously Luxurious
> EL= Eloquently Lively
> RSX= Rally Sport Xcellence
> MDX= Multi Dimensional Xcellence
> TSX= Totally Smokin' Xcellence

I don't know, when that debuted, it shot my theory all to hell.
"Ritzy Legend" perhaps?

NSX stands for New Sportscar Experimental

Before I bought one, I researched it thoroughly and this is one of the facts
I uncovered.
