Video: The History of the Acura TL Sport Sedan & What Lies Ahead

The TL will forever be one of Acura’s most iconic models. At its peak in 2005, the 3rd-generation TL sold over 78,000 units – an Acura record that may never be broken.

In this special 25-minute Redline Xtra video, Sofyen Bey takes us through four generations of the TL, and talks about what the future may hold with its successor, the TLX:

“The #AcuraTL has had a long history in the Acura portfolio here in the US. A replacement for the old Acura Vigor in the 90’s, the #TL quickly grew to become the best-selling model in Acura’s US lineup. Evolving over the years into a legitimate sport sedan rivals to the German players, while maintaining Acura’s reputation of better value and much better reliability. Acura hit a high point in the mid-2000’s with the 3rd generation #AcuraTLTypeS but things took a turn for the worst in 2009 when the beak-line front fascia appeared on the 4th generation. In 2015, the TL was replaced with the #AcuraTLX and sales never quite recovered. Can Acura once again find its glory days with the next-generation #TLX due in 2021?”

    Excellent history of the Acura TL. I am the owner of a 2007 TL-S In a 2011 TL. I love them both and I love the Acura brand my 2007 pulls out about 305 fours a little more than what you showed here with just Bolton upgrades. Would love to send you a picture
