The 2004 Acura TL was rated the top upscale sedan by a leading source for information on consumer products and services. The redesigned TL topped the BMW 330i, the Lexus ES330, the SAAB 9-5, and the Volvo S60 in a series of tests including acceleration, braking and safety, measuring overall driving experience. The BMW 330i had maintained the top spot for the past three years.
"It is an honor for the TL to be named as the top in its class against such solid competition," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, sales. "This accomplishment demonstrates the exciting direction in which Acura is headed with its focus on performance, technology and style."
The all-new 2004 TL debuted in October and continues to set monthly sales records. Powered by a 270 horsepower V-6, the TL features track tuned suspension, sporty new styling, and an assortment of the latest technology, as standard equipment, including DVD-Audio surround sound and Bluetooth wireless phone connectivity.
