2001 Acura TL 4.9 7
$ 1,032-6,624
April 16, 2001
Vehicle Overview
The front-drive 3.2TL sedan is derived from the Honda Accord and is built at the same assembly plant in Ohio. The two cars have something else in common: both are the best-selling models for their respective divisions.

Acura is Honda’s luxury division, and the 3.2TL is its midlevel sedan, fitting between the compact Integra and full-size RL in size and price.

There were no major changes in 2001, but the 3.2TL will get a face-lift when the 2002 models arrive next spring.

The conservative styling of the TL sedan makes it look like a trimmer version of the Acura 3.5RL, but it also reflects its family ties to the Accord. The TL’s 108-inch wheelbase and 193-inch overall length are 2 to 3 inches longer than the Accord’s dimensions.

The five-passenger 3.2TL comes fully equipped with leather upholstery, power front seats, automatic climate control, a power moonroof and a five-speaker sound system with an in-dash CD player. The only major option is the Acura Navigation System, which covers the continental United States with one DVD.

Under the Hood
The 3.2TL comes with a 3.2-liter V-6 engine (built in Ohio and shared with the CL coupe) that generates 225 horsepower. The engine teams with a five-speed automatic transmission that can be left in drive for fully automatic operation or in a SportShift slot that allows shifting up or down through the gears by tipping the lever fore or aft.

Driving Impressions
The TL has standard side-impact airbags mounted in the sides of the front seats. Seven sensors in the front passenger seat determine the size and position of the occupant and will disable the airbag if they detect a small child. The front airbag on the passenger side is the dual-inflation type that deploys with greater force in a severe collision.

Antilock brakes and traction control also are standard.
