Acura TL-SE Commercial: Best Kept Secret

A second round of ads for 2014 models have recently been uploaded by Acura USA. Both the ILX and RDX ads feature some neat cinematography and digital effects, but it’s the clever plot of the TL’s “Best Kept Secret” that comes out on top for me.

See the three videos below.

NCE Acura TL Convertible


Newport Convertible Engineering(NCE) chops the top off of a fourth-generation Acura TL to create a very unique four-door convertible. Complete with a functional soft top, roll bar, and gold racing stripes, I’ll admit it’s an interesting conversion, but definitely not something I would want Acura product planners to get any inspirational ideas from.

Acura Ranked Sixth in J.D. Power 2013 Initial Quality Study

2013 Acura TL

Acura TL – Compact Premium Car Segment Award Winner

Unchanged from last year’s ranking, Acura holds the sixth spot in J.D. Power’s 2013 Initial Quality Study. This year’s redesigned study ranked a total of 33 automotive brands based on new-vehicle quality after the first 90 days of ownership.

“J.D. Power has released the results of its latest Initial Quality Study (IQS), the company’s industry benchmark study that measures new-vehicle quality after the first 90 days of ownership. A key finding of this year’s study is that nearly two-thirds of the problems experienced in the first 90 days of ownership are related to the vehicle’s design, as opposed to components that malfunction. For example, the component may be working as designed, but owners deem it a problem because it may be difficult to understand or operate.” 

Ranked as a top three model in last year’s Entry Premium Car segment, the Acura TL captures a 2013 segment award as the top-ranked model in the Compact Premium Car segment. The Acura RDX was named a top three model in the Compact Premium CUV segment.

Acura TL Wins “Best Cars for Families” Award From U.S. News & World Report

2013 Acura TL named Best Upscale Midsize Car for Families

03/12/2013 – TORRANCE, Calif.

The 2013 TL, Acura’s performance luxury sedan, has been named “Best Upscale Midsize Car for Families” by U.S. News & World Report in its 2013 “Best Cars for Families” awards.

“The Acura TL offers the ideal blend of performance, comfort and safety, resulting in a luxury sedan that’s a smart choice for families,” said Mike Accavitti, vice president of national marketing operations. “The TL provides parents with the performance they desire in a luxury sedan paired with a well-appointed interior, top safety ratings, a host of standard Acura technologies and spacious second row seating that is ideal for clients and children.”

The “Best Cars for Families” awards combine quality, size and family-friendly features into a composite score. Quality is measured using a weighted average of scores from the U.S. News rankings at the time the awards are published. The rankings compare cars on the basis of safety, reliability and a consensus of automotive critics’ opinions. Size is based on a vehicle’s seating capacity and interior space. For family-friendly features, U.S. News factors in the availability of features deemed to be helpful to families by its editors.
