In 2009 Acura redesigned their most popular product… their TL. They infused a ton of technology including bluetooth key with push button start, and XM radio connected navigation system to start. Their most interesting change was the removal of their tape deck. That’s right Acura has a cassette tape deck in their TL through their 2008 model.
The new more aggressive and controversial design is a much more chiseled and modern. The new TL is larger in almost every dimension. The engine was beefed up from 258 HP to 280 HP for the front wheel drive version.
