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.

Acura TL Gets Avengers Artwork by Humberto Ramos

Humberto Ramos Avengers Acura TL

We’ve seen the Acura TL in Marvel’s film The Avengers, but with this special car, we see the Avengers on the Acura TL. Clearly this isn’t a S.H.I.E.L.D. Edition Acura TL, this one of a kind TL features Avengers character artwork hand-drawn by talented comic book artist Humberto Ramos. Working from an Acura Mexico dealership, Humberto spent the past few days applying his creative touch to the vehicle’s exterior. With Humberto’s distinct artistic style, the black “inked” characters look amazing stretched across the sides and on the front hood of the white Acura TL.

Hopefully there will be additional info and photos to come, but if you’re looking for a better view of the artwork, check out the video below.

JJ’s Nighthawk Black Pearl 2006 Acura TL

It’s a new year, and for the first gallery of 2013 I’ve picked a model that surprisingly hasn’t yet been featured on Acura Connected. The third generation TL is one of the most popular Acuras ever built, and even today some say it’s still the best looking Acura sedan to date.

JJ’s Nighthawk Black Pearl 2006 Acura TL doesn’t disappoint, it keeps that clean and classy OEM look, but also adds subtle style with tasteful features and an aggressive stance.

Here’s a full list of mods:

19″ WORK Equip wheels • ATLP Exhaust • Tein SS • ASPEC lip kit • Progress rear sway bar • AEM intake • blacked out headlights • HID kit • OEM visors • RV6 strut bar •  Ingalls camber kit  •  Accord fog lights

Enjoy the gorgeous set of photos above courtesy of JJ. The front profile shot is absolutely amazing!
