Drive the Best Car for Families, Drive the Acura TL

March 21st, 2013 by

You don’t have to take our word for it that the 2013 Acura TL is a great car for families, U.S. News & World Report has actually named it the best car in its class for families. You can discover the new TL at your Chicagoland Acura dealer today and see it for yourself.

Praise for the TL

Named “Best Upscale Midsize Car for Families,” the 2013 TL earned its accolades by providing an “ideal blend of performance, comfort, and safety” according to Mike Accavitti, and we couldn’t agree more.

Under the hood of the current TL is a 3.5L V6 engine capable of up to 280 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque – that’s “performance” covered pretty handily right there – although drivers can opt to upgrade to a 3.7L V6 with 305 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque if you need a bit more oomph.

When it comes to comfort, few can hold a candle to Acura. The entry-level TL includes leather upholstery, heated eight-way power adjustable front seating, and a wide range of technology:

  • Bluetooth phone and audio streaming
  • Satellite radio
  • iPod connectivity
  • Eight speaker stereo system with six-CD changer

The fact that you can add on improved sound systems, navigation options, and much more certainly has “comfort” covered, no matter what TL you’re driving.

And where safety is concerned, you receive only the best and most advanced in auto safety technology, including anti-lock brakes with brake-assist, a range of airbags, and traction and stability control systems, earning the 2013 TL “Good” rankings from the IIHS in frontal-offset, side-impact, and roof strength tests.

When you add in that Acura’s sedan also offers much more cabin space than drivers tend to expect in a sedan, its popularity as a family vehicle becomes pretty obvious. Giving kids the chance to stretch out can be one of the biggest perks of the TL.
