My wife and I looked at several vehicles (Infiniti G35, Audi A4) before we decided on the Acura TL-S. My wife didn't like the others. I wanted performance - sporty handling and 0-60 in less than 6 seconds. The Acura's engine is very smooth with enough power. The handling is excellent - sporty but not stiff, slight understeer. Shifting is precise - I really love the shift paddles. The nav. system is easy to use with a big screen and many features. It's just really fun to drive.
Smooth engine. Precise shifting and handling. Shift paddles on steering wheel. Nav. system.
Automatic tilt steering wheel. Of course more horsepower even though 286 HP is surprisingly fast in the Acura.
