TL-6MT vs S4 vs 335xi
By fcarre2 on


2012 Acura TL SH-AWD w/Technology Package 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Had an opportunity to drive all three cars back to back for over an hour per vehicle.
Although these vehicles are generally not cross shopped, there may be more reason to do so, especially since the TL redesign.
The perfect vehicle would include the BMW exterior styling and suspension, the TL tranny and SHAWD and the Audi engine and interior.
Unfortunately, I see deficits, albeit small, in all three vehicles.
The TL SHAWD is impressive to say the least.
Just hammer the it in a turn and it begs for more.
The 6MT is as smooth as it gets.
Interior is better than others' review.

Best Features

SH-AWD, silky smooth 6-MT, Roomier interior than 3 series and A4. Holds two golf bags with ease. Can't justify spending more money for a German brand.
